KTM Posts Over $12K in Contingency for 3rd Annual Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross

Morgantown, W.Va. (January 5, 2012) – MX Sports is pleased to announce KTM’s involvement in the 3rd Annual Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross Championship on Sunday, March 11 and Monday, March 12, 2012, at Daytona International Speedway. KTM is offering over $12,000 in KTMCASH to racers participating in the 2012 RCSX through XTRM Plus.

This year’s event has expanded to two full days of amateur racing, featuring longer races and practices with more class options to give racers even more track-time over the course of the weekend. In addition to posting a contingency program for 2012, KTM will also have their Amateur Racing Trackside support staff on hand both days to assist all racers on the KTM brand.

“KTM is excited to return to the Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross event,” said Amateur Racing Support Manager, Mike Sleeter. “KTM’s contingency program, provided by XTRM, includes RCSX to reward those riders that finish in the top of their class at a national level event. We wish all riders the best of luck at this event and we look forward to attending.”

MX Sports organizes the event by utilizing over 30 years of experience operating the Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn Ranch. The class structure includes classes for youth riders on 50cc bikes all the way up to vet and senior classes. The race will follow a supercross format, using heat races and last chance qualifiers to seed the field of riders into a main event in each class, over the course of two days. Unlike the Loretta Lynn Ranch format, riders do not need to qualify at other races in order to participate in the Daytona event.
