2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross | MX Sports Statement
The COVID-19 situation continues to have a massive impact on professional motocross and leaves the remainder of the race season in question. MX Sports, the organizer and promoter for the 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, has issued their first statement in regards to the 12 race series scheduled to run from mid-May to late August.
The press release states that they are currently assessing what will have to be done in the coming weeks and months for all professional sports, which will largely be determined by the latest announcements and advisories from all government authorities.
“With the 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship approaching, MX Sports Pro Racing is conducting discussions with our series partners to determine what actions might be required for currently scheduled series events. Each day presents new information in regards to the coronavirus, and that newfound knowledge will be taken into consideration as we continue to prepare for the new season, as will any actions taken by local and state governments where our venues are located, or any precautionary measures issued by the national government.”
There is zero indication of scheduling or venue changes in the statement, which is understandable. The 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship is slated to start on May 16 with the 2020 Hangtown Motocross in Rancho Cordova, California.
