6. NE Pro1, NE Pro2 and AA riders are additional, top tier classes in the “A” classification as per
AMA Racing Rule Book Off-Road 2.1.B.
1. At each event all National classes must be run; additionally, there may not be an ATV class at an
AMA National Enduro. At the promoter’s option, additional support classes may be run. If youth
support classes are offered, they must be run separate from the Championship program. Youth
events should run on the Saturday preceding the National Enduro.
2. National Enduro events will utilize the Start Control/Restart format. A restart format allows riders to
ride into a check, wait for their number to flip, be scored and then motor on. Restart formats also use
“transfer sections” to get riders from one “points taking” section to another. These are essentially “free
time” sections in which there cannot be a check. (See Appendix)
3. National Enduros will be run as off-road course events. The off-road course definition means that if a
public road is used to connect course sections, a special waiver/parade permit or the like, must be
secured from the responsible law enforcement officials to allow the transfer of unlicensed bikes and
riders from one section to another. No section of the course may be traversed more than twice during
a. Bikes must have a US Forest Service approved spark arrestor.
b. Driver’s License, lights and registration are not required.
4. The National Enduro Series Referee will work in conjunction with the event Referee to comply with
the AMA rules and duties set forth in the AMA Racing Rulebook Appendix 5.5; Paragraph A.
5. National Enduro meet key time is 9 AM. First row will start at 9:01 AM
6. The 55+ A, 55+ B and Women “Elite” classes will ride the same course as the National “B” classes.
The 60+, 66+ and Women Amateur “C” classes will ride the same course as the “C” classes.
7. Riders that pre-enter an event will request their preferred starting row. The pre-entry software will
give the rider the closest, later row to their preference as possible. Priority will be determined by the
earliest on-line time stamp. The reserved NE Pro1, NE Pro2 rider numbers will be held, even if the
NE Pro1, NE Pro2 rider doesn’t pre-enter. There will be no refunds or transfer of pre-entries.
8. Electronic transponder scoring will be used at National Enduros. Riders will need to purchase a
transponder as this is how their score will be captured.
a. In the case that a transponder fails the official back up time will be utilized only for those riders
whose transponder experienced failure.
b. Back up time will be set to the official check “key time” and be taken the instant the riders front
wheel crosses the check signs.
c. Back up time will be considered official by event referee 30 minutes after results are posted.
9. National Enduros must have 6 test sections for NE Pro 1, NE Pro 2, AA and “A” class riders, 5 test
sections for “B” class riders and 4 test sections for “C” class riders, unless the National Enduro Series
referee decides to alter that program for reasons of weather or course length.
10. Emergency checks will be scored by total minutes, seconds and milliseconds, and are calculated
from the top of a riders due minute. Scores will be tabulated by the actual number of minutes,
seconds and milliseconds that a rider takes to complete each section. The time from each section
will be added together for a total score.
11. NEPG supplied Mileage markers must be posted on the course at every even mile.
12. Rider registration will be from 3-7PM Saturday and 7-8:30AM Sunday
13. NE Pro1 entry fee will be $80.00. NE Pro2 entry fee will be $70.00
14. All restarts will be live engine start and riders are allowed to start their bikes 10 seconds before their
row is released.
15. You must start to receive event & series points for that event. If a rider signs up but does not start the
event, they will not receive points.
16. At the season opener NE Pro1 and NE Pro2 riders will be reserved start positions based on
their 2017 year end results. One Spot per Row 21-30 will be reserved for NE Pro2 riders based
on their 2017 overall result. Row 31-40 will be reserved for NE Pro1 riders based on their 2017
Overall result. Any rider that chooses to advance to the NE Pro1 class will start on row 43 and
continue one per minute in order based on the earliest registration.
Beginning with the 2nd event and continuing through the rest of the series, the top 10 NE Pro1 riders
overall from the previous round will be placed on rows based on their overall results from that round.
The winner of the previous event will start on row 31 and the second place finisher on row 32 and
continue in order one per row through row 40.
The riders that were not in the top 10 overall in the previous round but are in the top 15 overall in the
current year series point standings will be lined up one per row starting on row 41 in order of their
place in the series points. In the event that a pro rider that has a reserved row does not attend the
next round each pro rider behind them will be moved up so that there are no empty rows in the pro
rider line up.
Any riders that register in the pro class but were not in the top 10 overall in the previous round and
are not in the top 15 in the current series point standings will be lined up one per row beginning with
the first available row past those riders that are in the top 15 overall in series points.
NE Pro2 riders will be placed on rows based on the current series points for the remaining
rounds. The series points leader will start on row 21 and second place in points on row 22 and
continue in order one per row through row 30.
17. The minimum section length is 4-miles and the maximum is 12-miles.
18. NE Pro1, NE Pro2 and Women Elite results will be final 30 minutes of the final test being closed. All
other class results will be final 24 Hours of the final test being closed.
a. Except for the top 3 finishers in the NE Pro1, NE Pro2 and Women Elite classes, personalized
awards will ship to the rider from the series vendor instead of an awards presentation at the
19. In the event a rider inadvertently misses a portion of the course during a test, the average of their
remaining test times will be calculated and they will be given the test time of the rider officially
finishing in that average position for the test in question in addition to receiving a 1 minute 30 second
1. National class points will be based on the following point’s schedule:
Finish / Points Finish / Points Finish / Points Finish / Points
1 - 30 6 - 15 11 - 10 16 - 5
2 - 25 7 - 14 12 - 9 17 - 4
3 - 21 8 - 13 13 - 8 18 - 3
4 - 18 9 - 12 14 - 7 19 - 2
5 - 16 10 - 11 15 - 6 20 - 1
Example: At a series event a rider may finish first in the 250cc class and third overall. He would
receive 30 points for his 250cc class win and 21 points toward the National Championship.
2. To be eligible for NEPG series awards, a rider must compete in at least 4 less than of the total
number of events. The series overall championship will count the riders scores from all rounds and
each class championship will drop their 2 lowest scores from the total number of events..
A restart format utilizes AMA Enduro rules with one small change. Typically, an Enduro consists of
points taking sections that last anywhere from 4 to 12 miles. Most of the time there is an "in-check" at
the beginning of that section. You can usually tell where it is going to be because there are anywhere
from five to 25 riders parked out of eyesight just before the check waiting for their time so they can roll
into the check at the beginning of their minute. A restart format would allow those riders to ride the
extra tenth of a mile into the check, and wait for their number to flip be scored and then motor on.
Restart formats also use "transfer sections" to get you from one "points taking" section to another.
These are essentially "free time" sections in which there cannot be a check.
If you took your route sheet from your last Enduro and changed the secret checks that were placed at
the beginning of a points taking section to “start controls” you have the restart format. Random secret
checks will not be used in a restart format, because the riders will be able to transfer from the
previous emergency out check to the next start control without having to keep time.
Enduros have emergency checks coming out of the points taking sections, observation checks, and
speed changes if needed to adjust for the terrain. All checks must be at the proper mileage according
to the speed average you are running, clocks set accurate, 2.9-mile marker. Gas stops and gas
availables must be placed a maximum of 33-miles apart. The minimum ground mileage is 55-miles for
Pro and A class riders, B and C rider cut-offs must be used.
