Classification Appeal

Riders who wish to contest their AMA classification achieved during the current year through the National Advancement System may appeal once. The deadline for appeals related to year-end advancement is March 1 (Off-Road) and April 1 (Motocross). The AMA Appeal process is a three-member board to hear appeals and there is no second appeal to this classification process. The appeal board will be made up of the three AMA Congress representatives from the motocross committee list. The Appeal process can take a few weeks for the appeal board to render an educated decision.
