MIDDLE ATLANTIC MOTOCROSS ASSOCIATION

POINTS SYSTEM & AWARDS
1. Any rider who had 300 advancement points in their class at the end of last season will be advanced to the next higher class.

2. The MAMA Board of Directors has reviewed the points system and we are returning to the old Points System. In order to advance from a Novice (C) rider to a Support (B) rider, a member must accumulate 450 advancement points in the Novice class. To advance from a Support (B) rider to an Expert (A) rider, a member must accumulate 450 advancement points in the Support class. No advancement points will be carried forward with you to the next class.

3. Plate Number Points will be accumulated during the season to establish your overall position in your class for the end of year banquet awards.

4. Three or more riders will constitute a class for the purpose of advancement points. Two riders are required for one trophy and plate points. No riders may be moved to a higher class to form the class.

5. Advancement points will be cut off after the August 27th, 2006 race. After this race you will not be required to move to the next class. You will still earn advancement points at this race.

6. A rider must attend a minimum of 12 races in their class or equivilant advancement class. Example – 80’s 7-11 Novice, Support or Expert. As long as you run 12 races in that 80 7-11 class your classification does not matter. If you move from 80’s 7-11 to 80’s 12-15 you must run 12 races in the 80’s 12-15 class.. The final championship positions will be determined from among the eligible riders who participate in the 12 MAMA events. If an event is cancelled, it will be treated as a “non-event”. Specifically, it may not be used in any manner to determine a rider’s point standings. Tie breakers will be determined by the number of first place finishes followed by the number of second, thirds, and so on until the tie is broken. All motos will be used to calculate the number of first place finishes for tie breakers. The number of races run minus one will be used to determine the overall winners at the end of the season.



7. All advancement points must be earned in the top 33% of the class before advancing to the next highest classification.
