AMA announces 2009 AMA National Hare & Hound Championship Series Schedule

PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) announced today the 2009 schedule for the AMA National Hare & Hound Championship Series. The AMA National Hare & Hound Championship Series is composed of AMA Sports-sanctioned events and is one of the premier off-road racing series in the country. The series gives both amateur competitors and the country's fastest desert racers a place to race.

"Working with local promoters, we've put together a 2009 schedule that offers some excellent racing opportunities across some of the most-challenging desert terrain in the country," said AMA Off-Road Director Chuck Weir. "With three rounds scheduled for the fall, the traditional summer break will include the suspense of who will be our class champions. This will bring more interest to these later rounds and encourage more racers and fans to come out and enjoy the sport in the second half of the year."

In recent years, the AMA National Hare & Hound Championship Series has featured just one fall round. That meant the class winners, including the overall national champion, were often decided before heading into the long summer break. This year's calendar is structured so that's unlikely to happen.

The 2009 AMA National Hare & Hound Championship Series will begin on Jan. 25 at the Johnson Valley Off-Highway Vehicle Area near Lucerne, California. The seven-round championship will wrap up on Oct. 31 in Jericho, Utah. The complete schedule is below.
