SAN DIEGO, Calif. (August 31, 2016) – For the third year running, the AMA Supermoto National Championship Series heads to Colorado National Speedway in Denver, Colorado, on September 3 for a night of racing and fireworks. Held in conjunction with the NASCAR Super Late Models Series, it will be a night of non-stop racing action on two wheels and four.

Last year Gage McAllister took home the double at Denver. This year, the back-to-back Pro Open champ could leave with his third-straight number one plate, as McAllister holds a 55-point lead over RSR KTM teammate Dustin Hoffman going into the penultimate round of the championship. Sitting third-place in the standings is fellow RSR KTM rider Eric Stump, followed by Australian Josh McLean on the Lean Six Sigma Racing Husqvarna. Rounding out the top five is O’Hara/Intents Racing/Motul’s Tyler O’Hara.

Meanwhile in the Pro Lites class, it’s a close race for the crown between Lean Six Sigma Racing Husqvarna’s Josh Jackson and Welsh Racing’s Cameron Welsh. The pair are separated by five points with reigning Pro Lites Champion Nicky Reimer playing chase a further nine points back. In fourth is HB Racing’s Brady Tauson followed by Fat Boy Racing’s Dallas Daniels.

The National Amateur title chase is even tighter with 53-year-old Lee Schmidt leading Monarch Honda’s Malcolm Barker by two points. RSR KTM’s Joe Agley sits third followed by Christian Payne, who was promoted to the Pro Lites class after his win at his home race in Bakersfield, California.

About Supermoto

Supermoto originated in the U.S. in the late 70s as a made-for-TV “Superbikers” show. Supermoto is a cross-discipline event in which road racers, dirt-trackers and motocrossers compete on a unique track that combines pavement and dirt, resulting in a very competitive race track. The races feature jumps, high speeds and back-it-in sliding. Tracks can range from football stadiums to closed-course streets to parking lots and more.
