D-2 Supplemental Rules revised 2-18-2020

1. Medical Coverage Statement – D2MX and race tracks promoting D2MX race events do not provide medical insurance. If you do not have medical insurance we do not recommend racing in a motocross race event.

2. AMA Requirements- Racers must have a valid AMA Card to race at any event. AMA cards can be purchased on race day or on-line at: https://americanmotorcyclist.com/join-the-ama/ If you register on-line please bring your receipt or have the receipt on your cellular communication device so membership can be verified. Racers must have a valid District, Competition Partner or approved series card.

3. District 2 (D2MX) Year End Awards- In order  to qualify for year end awards for District 2, racers must have a valid District 2 Competition Partner Card (D2MX). Racers must also attend at a minimum 4 Raceway Park MX event, 3 Field of Dreams MX events and 1 additional MX event at a track of the racers choice to be eligible for year end awards. This is based on a full race series with no rain outs. Based on rain outs or unforeseen cancellations the above minimum requirements may be modified. Notification will be made via the D2MX web site, social media and announced at a future race events in the calendar year where possible or as needed if this decision is made.

4. Points- Racers will obtain 2 sign up points at each race and class as rider is signed up for. Points are awarded for finishes as follows:

1st Place will receive 16 points, 2nd Place 15 points etc., based on the number of entries to 15th place. 15th Place will receive 2 points based on the number of entries up to 42 entries. 16th Place to 42nd place will receive 1 point based on the number of entries, plus 2 sign up points.

Example 1 Class With 5 Entries: The points will be distributed as follows 1st Place 16+2 sign up points=18 points, 2nd Place 15+2=17 points, 3rd Place 14+2+16 points, 4th Place 13+2+15 points and 5th Place 12+2=14 points.

5. Identification- Racers are required to provide proof of age and confirmation of identification, this may be asked for at anytime during the event. Racers under the age of 18 must have a parent present at sign up and ID must be verified. Minors with a Guardian must have a Parent Guardian release form completed and notarized in order to compete at each event, no exceptions.

6. Behavior- Each racer is responsible for their own action plus the actions of their family and pit crew. Any detrimental action, vandalism, foul language to an official, promoter, organizer, sponsoring club, AMA official or district official caused by these individuals puts the racer at risk for disqualification from the moto or entire event and will be escorted off the property if necessary. If any of the above actions occur prior to or immediately after an event disciplinary action may occur by the promoter or the AMA. Based on the severity this may lead to a suspension of competing in AMA competition events.

7. Race Fees – Race fees may be different from track to track. Every facility has a different minimum fee they need to collect to continue operating. Our sport has a business side and if a facility does not collect the minimum amount of money they need to stay in business they will simply be unable to continue to provide a facility to provide motocross practice and race competition.

8. Transponders are used at Field of Dreams, Raceway Park and Pagoda M/C. The transponders are the MyLaps Style, you may use your own, rent one or purchase on at the track. All racers must have a transponder to be scored. Rented transponders MUST be returned at the end of each race event. All tracks do require a deposit for the transponder and charge a minimal rental fee for renting the transponder.

9. Beginner Class – The beginner class is for first time  youth racer only. Racers will only be eligible for the beginner class for one season. Racers may be advanced to the appropriate youth classed based on an evaluation of a D-2 and or race track official at anytime. If a racer wins five beginner class races they will also be advanced to the appropriate class. Beginner class racers are not eligible for year end awards. 

10. AMA Rules- All race rules are based on the current year AMA rule book. You can find and view the AMA rule book at: https://americanmotorcyclist.com/motocross-rules/

11. Race Track- During a race event at no time is a parent, spectator, or mechanic allowed to enter the race track area, only the promoter, promoters staff and the racers participating in the race on the track are allowed on the race track.
