The Lucas Oil Speedway Off Road trackThe Lucas Oil Speedway Off Road track will play host to the USA Pro-Am Motocross event, Sept. 29-30 and Oct. 1

Wheatland, Missouri (August 24, 2017) - Anticipation for first Lucas Oil Speedway USA Pro-Am Motocross is building with the inaugural event on the Lucas Oil Speedway Off Road track about a month away.

Professional and amateur riders from all over the country are expected for the three-day American Motorcycle Association event, which begins with a Sept. 29 practice day before racing on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.

Jay Reynolds of Motorhead Events said he expects at least 400 entries in about 40 classes of pro and amateur racing for both motorcycles and ATVs.

"The big thing about it is the facility," Reynolds said of Lucas Oil Speedway. "It being an AMA Pro-Am, all the up-and-coming pros can come and get points to go race Supercross and the AMA Nationals. This will draw a lot of really fast riders from all over the nation.

"About five years ago one of top amateur races in nation was called the Branson USA and it died out," Reynolds said. "We're expecting this event to grow into one of the top amateur national events over the next couple of years."

Pro riders will compete for $4,000 in purse money. Saturday at 4 p.m. will feature a pro program with all-star classes.

"We will be utilizing the off-road truck track and building some jumps around it and going into the infield in certain places to try and develop two different tracks," Reynolds said. "But it will follow the design of the truck track a lot."

Reynolds added that the UTVs will race on the existing off-road track layout "which will be a real neat thing for the spectators to watch."

Riders and fans will enjoy amenities that include live timing and scoring, full RV hookups, car and bike wash, 10 acres of shaded camping, basketball court, bounce house, fishing ponds, swimming lakes, full shower houses, propane and camping log sales and covered grandstands.

"We're excited to play host to the Lucas Oil USA Pro-Am Motocross," Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson said. "We think it'll an outstanding time and a great weekend for the riders and the fans and we look forward to seeing everyone in just a few weeks."

The outdoor national style Pro-Am event is sanctioned by the AMA and promoted by the Nitro Arenacross Tour LLC. Go to www.motorheadevents.com or call (417) 863-6353 for classes, race info and schedule.
