The Amateur SX series will show case a total of 6 rounds with half of the rounds to be hosted by the Milestone Amateur SX track and the other half will be run at the Glen Helen Stadiumcross track.

The top rider of the event was lake Havasu native Julien Beaumer, a stand up jet ski world champion who scored wins on his RM Army Suzuki’s in three separate classes including 85cc 7-11 S upermini 9-14 and the feature race the Veritch Electric 85-112 future pros. Peyton Marks the 85cc 9-14 class winner gave “Juju” Beaumer all he could handle in the 10 lap future Pro main event, but Beaumer held it together to score the win and earned a $500 Game Stop gift card and a gold cup. Marks gave a good effort for second and was rewarded with a $300 gift card to Game Stop and ASV racer Dane Morelas finished out the podium with the 3rd place plaque and $200 gift card to Game Stop.
The star of the 65cc class was BTO Racer Kelana Humphrey who scored wins in both 65cc open and 65cc 10-11 classes. With former AMA Pro Kyle Lewis by his side and his smooth style and rocket starts enabled him to run away to both main event wins earning the title of the top junior cycle of the event.
AME Amatuer SX warm up Supermini race winner Joshua Varize made his debut in the big bike class quiet memorable. He battled tooth and nail with Bjorn Viney In the the 250 non Pro class during the Heat race and early on in the Main event. Varize showed true maturity in his first big bike Main event and scored a well earned victory.
Finally the Race Tech mini-marvel award from round one went to Alexis Dunn who raced hard in three separate classes leading laps and showing her style for miles. Her professionalism and class was recognized by all on and off the track as her genuine qualities serve as a great role model to both MX girls and boys nationwide to follow.
