The amateur racing schedule got underway on Sunday with timed practice sessions in the morning, followed immediately by the start of the heat races. Monday’s racing action resumed with the remainder of heat races, followed by last chance qualifiers and of course, the Main Events.

Thirty-four Major Champions were crowned at the six-annual event, while one rider, Kylie Fasnacht, emerged victorious as the round one winner of the Women’s Motocross Championship (WMX) with a 1-1 sweep in Daytona.
Monster Energy Team Green Kawasaki’s Darian Sanyei doubled up at the highest level of competition, claiming championships in 450 A/Pro Sport and 250 All-Star A/B.

In the 65cc classes, it was KTM Orange Brigade’s Matthew Leblanc who topped the field with two championships behind him. Leblanc captured the 65 (10-11) and 65 (7-11) Open titles, while also finishing second in the 85 (9-11) class.
