2013 Main Event Series Update
AMA MAIN EVENT SERIES & AMA DISTRICT 20 CHAMPIONSHIP CONTINUE FOR 2013
Houston, Texas January 14, 2014 For immediate release
The Main Event Series has grown every year since its inception in 2007 and has become the largest motocross series in the Houston area. In 2011 the District 20 Championship was added to four rounds of the MES and those 4 rounds proved to be the most attended of the series. In 2012 all 6 rounds of the MES were also District 20 Championship rounds and the series produced the most entries in the 6 year history of the series. The big news for 2013 is the Main Event Series will run separate from the District 20 Championship. The MES will be a 5 race summer night series on Saturday nights from June to August. The D20 Championship will be a 5 round fall series on Sunday's running from September to October. The D20 Championship will crown District Champions in every class and also serve as a qualifying series for the AMA State Final. Both series will recognize the top 5 in every amateur class with thousands of dollars of awards and contingencies at the end of the series. As a bonus the D20 Championship is offering factory contingencies from Honda, Yamaha and KTM. Larry Hughes promoter of the Main Event Series since it started back in '07 will be the running the show again in '13, and says, "I've been involved in motocross my entire life and have poured part of my life into this series. I want to make sure it's a good product for the riders, families, tracks and sponsors". Emil Shebelbon brought the District 20 Championship to the Main Event Series in 2011 and will now be handling the duties for the D20 Championship as it goes solo in 2013 and added, "I have been trying for years to get a District Championship and a State Wide Series, the Main Event was the perfect fit to get it started in District 20. Thanks to the riders and track owners, it has grown to the point now where it needs to be its own series. We are also thankful to have the factories participate with contingencies. It's going to be huge in 2013". Again in 2013 the AMA State Wide Series will have district championships in all three AMA districts. The best riders from all 3 AMA districts will meet up at the AMA State Final in November.
DATES AND LOCATION FOR EACH SERIES AND STATE FINAL

Outlaw452.com Main Event Series... Record Breaking Again
With another record breaking opening round at 3 Palms, Conroe, TX at the Outlaw452.com Main Event Series at over 500+ Entries!! Once again riders and their famiies poured in from both ends of the country - Florida to California. We were once again caught off-guard with the enormous entries! Though we want nothing less, it's hard to satisfy as well as keep 500+ entered riders safe without expecting it.
So we took the unexpected and put a twist on it to put out another series kick off to it's full potential. The series Promoter, Larryu Hughes, put in TONS of work, time, determination, etc to see us Succeed as a series (the 2nd biggest in Texas to date) in whole. But with 21+ classes we had our hands full as well not being far off the biggest in our state. And with seemingly half were double gates, so the event went into the A.M. hours again.
But the presenting sponsors have really upped their game with each having their own vendor sponsor parking and keeping pit row "busy" to say the least. With parents getting their son/daughter gear down to talking to Doctor's on hand thanks to James Marshall Project who has teamed up with Memorial Hermann Hospital to expand the "Concussion Education Program" to athlete's, parent's and coaches as well. Who did an excellent job up-dating everyone at the riders meeting on how they can learn more and where they can be tested for free from 6-18 ages (I believe).

The Outlaw452.com Main Event Series takes a weekend off and will kick back off at Cowboy Badlands in Beaumont, TX August 25 (night race). Sign-up begins at 2 P.M. with practice around 6.
