MX Sports Pro Racing has announced the schedule for the 2022 season of professional motocross racing. Next year’s AMA-sanctioned Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship season is its golden anniversary. Fifty years of professional off-road racing lead us to this coming year.
Best Season Yet?
“This is arguably the most significant season in the history of American motocross,” said Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing. “If we’ve learned anything over the past two years it’s that nothing is given, but through so much uncertainty our sport has continued to bring joy, excitement, and compelling drama to those who share in the passion for motorsports. With our 50th Anniversary upon us, we hope to begin what feels like a new era and a fresh start of sorts for the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. One that will see a return to fan-filled paddocks and the kind of up-close-and-personal atmosphere that has allowed our sport to stand alone in terms of accessibility.”
We’ve all struggled with the pandemic-induced restrictions on travel, crowds, and events. The 2022 summer season already looks packed full of all kinds of parties. If you’re into motocross, get a few of these dates in your calendar now.
