The American Motorcyclist Association has released the official number list for the 2023 Supercross and Pro Motocross racing series. Competitors have been ranked in relation to their total points scored while competing in the 250 or 450 Classes during the 2022 racing season; the best riders are rewarded with the champion’s number one plate in their respective region, others are allowed the option to pick a “permanent” for the remainder of their career, and most claim their status by whatever two-digits they’ve been assigned by the system.

There were six riders that did not score the minimum points necessary in 2022 but asked to keep their numbers for another year, all of whom were past champions. This list includes Adam Cianciarulo (last points: San Diego SX 2022) Zach Osborne (last points: Thunder Valley MX 2021), Broc Tickle (last points: Salt Lake City Two SX 2021), Chad Reed (last points: Salt Lake City Seven SX 2020), Colt Nichols (crashed out of Heat Race at Anaheim One SX in 2022), and Justin Hill (last points: Salt Lake City Seven SX 2020).

Ryan Dungey, Justin Brayton, Alex Martin, and Chris Blose all declared that 2022 will be their last seasons as full-time races, but none gave up their numbers for the list.

Nate Thrasher is the rider with the lowest new number, as he’s dropped to 29. He opted against taking 13, which the AMA allows out of superstition.

Five riders that made their rookie debut in 2022 will have two-digit numbers in 2023. Nick Romano will be 54, Cullin Park will be 67, Matthew LeBlanc will be 72, Ryder DiFrancesco will be 75, and Kaeden Amerine will be 89.

Active riders that held two-digit numbers in 2022 but did not earn one for 2023 include Coty Schock, Kyle Peters, Josh Osby, Thomas Do, Ramyller Alves, Cedric Soubeyras, Hunter Schlosser, Scott Meshey, Hunter Sayles, Alex Ray, Jacob Runkles, Jace Kessler, Tyler Stepek, and RJ Wageman.

Christian Craig was the only rider to earn a new permanent digit. The 250 West Coast SX champion will run 28, the same number he had in 2022, for the remainder of his pro career. Craig’s looming move to Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing means that he and Malcolm Stewart will be teammates with number in order.

Another pair of teammates with numbers in sequential order will be AEO Powersports riders Derek Kelley (41) and Joshua Varize (42).

Five international racers that did part-time programs in the US did enough to earn a spot on the list: Antonio Cairoli (65), Dylan Walsh (79), Josh Gilbert (82), Josiah Natzke (86), and Guillem Farres (88).

Six riders did enough to go from three digits to two for next year: Marshal Weltin (50), Derek Drake (53), Ryan Breece (61), Carson Brown (64), Tristan Lane (90), Lance Kobusch (95), Devin Harriman (97), and Geran Stapleton (98).
