There have been intriguing developments in the United States – MX Sports Pro Racing just announced that the 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series will not begin until July 04. The series was previously set to kick off at WW Motocross Park in Florida on June 13. The following statement confirmed the news.
“The Pro Motocross schedule is currently under revision. The opening round is postponed to July 04 and the series will run through October 03, with dates and locations to be announced as soon as possible. Currently the number of rounds remains at 11.”
RedBud in Michigan is currently slated to host the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series on July 04. However, reports from the United States suggest that the venues could be shuffled around. The most recent amendment to the outdoor schedule will also allow Feld Entertainment to run the remaining seven rounds of 2020 Monster Energy Supercross before attention turns to a new campaign.
The latest is that the plan to run all seven rounds in Arizona’s still being put into action, but it won’t come together until the end of May. That would mean that the first three weeks of June would be needed for indoor action. May 30 is the new date for the eleventh round that is being thrown around. There has still not been any official communication from Feld Entertainment – that is expected in the coming days.
Another point to consider is that now that the 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series will run until October 04, it is highly likely that a round of the outdoors will run on the same weekend as the Motocross of Nations that is going to be run on September 27 in France. One would presume this means that Team USA won’t send a team. More news is expected throughout the month of May.
