It’s that time of year again! The Racer X Maine Event is will be September 13th, 14th, 15th. With the support from so many of you, this event has been promoted to an AMA Featured Event status. With the huge pro-purse last year and the selected All Star riders running the bibs as “the guys to beat” in their respective classes, this race sets itself up as having the most competition, the most track prep, and the best of times. This is the biggest stage in the Northeast to prove yourself and see how you match up against the best of the best, this is the race that matters; This is “The Maine Event”.
The weekend kicks of with a Friday Practice from 9:00am-3:00pm, and racing will be Saturday and Sunday. The Friday practice is optional. There is a standard race day morning practice on Saturday for people who are not able to arrive early enough Friday. Gates open for the weekend Thursday at 9:00am.
This is an AMA event. We’ve structured our classes around AMA ages and bike sizes. Please be aware of age requirements and machine criteria per AMA rules. A breakdown of the classes will be available here: Classes

Below is a video detailing how to use EMXN to register for this event:
This will be an AMA Sanctioned event.
Riders who do not have an AMA Membership already will be able to get a temporary membership for $20.00.
A rider will be allowed to ride a second bike if their bike breaks and prevents them from being able to finish the weekend as long as it fits class criteria.
If a class has more then 45 riders, we will run qualifiers. The first (of 3) run through the schedule will be heat 1 and heat 2 where the top 19 from each class will qualify. After all first motos are ran, LCQs (if any) will be ran in that same order for the top 5 to qualify. Those who’ve qualified will all race together in the 2nd and 3rd motos.
The 250 A and 450 A classes will run time qualifying in the morning for gate positions.
The EJP Pro Purse is $15,000. This goes towards the top 10 overall for the 250 A and 450 A classes. Last year, Chris Canning from CT was able to take 1st in both classes and will be back again with the red #1 plates on his bikes.
The 30+ A class will have a 100% payback, using the NESC pay chart.
The Aggressive Graphix 125 2-Stroke class will have $600 up for grabs. 1st-300 2nd-200 3rd-11
