The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) announced today the schedule for the 2011 AMA Racing Rekluse National Enduro Championship Series, presented by Moose Racing. The 2011 season will feature 10 rounds of premier off-road racing and showcase a range of skill-, age- and displacement-based classes.
"The AMA Racing Rekluse National Enduro Championship Series, presented by Moose Racing, is coming off another strong season in 2010," said AMA Director of Racing Joe Bromley. "Working with the National Enduro Promotions Group (NEPG), we've made some key improvements to the series that have led to some of the highest participation in the history of the championship. We're looking forward to more improvement in 2011."
The AMA Racing National Enduro Championship dates to the founding of the AMA in 1924. It is one of the longest-running national motorsports championships in the world and today is one of the premier off-road racing series in the country. It is designed to provide a competitive landscape for all levels of riders, from amateur competitors to the country's fastest enduro racers.
"The NEPG would like to give our thanks to all of the clubs that have hosted an AMA Rekluse National Enduro," said the NEPG's Alan Randt. "The success of the series would not be possible without their hard work and dedication to the sport. We would also like to welcome five new clubs to the 2011 series, two of which are hosting their first ever National."
Although each year features historical favorites, such as the Jack Pine Enduro in Moorestown, Mich., the AMA Racing National Enduro Championship Series often races in new locations each year. The new venues on the 2011 schedule include Salley, S.C.; Forest Hill, La.; Bismark, Ark.; Cross Fork, Pa.; and Chandlersville, Ohio. The new clubs are Ohio's Zanesville Trail Riders and the Arkansas Dirt Riders.
