The land rush to the first turn.

Dear MXA,
    I was surprised to see 22 riders on the starting line for the Anaheim I main events. To me putting more slow rider on the track isn’t a step in the right direction, but when the race was over I only saw results to the top 20. What do the 21st and 22nd riders get out of being in the main?

To accommodate the 21st and 22nd rider, the AMA has decided to give 1 point each for 20th, 21st and 22nd places. Money-wise, in the 450 class, a rider will get $2125 for 20th, $1620 for 21st and $1415 for 22nd.

The 250 East/West riders will also get 1 point for a finish from 20th to 22nd?but their payout is much less than in the 450 class. 20th place in the 250 class pays $370, 21st $360 and 22nd $350.

Additionally, in the 450 class at A1, Vince Friese was disqualified from the results by the AMA for unsportsmanlike conduct and thus received no points for his 22nd place finish.


Matt Goerke had a bad night and finished 20th. He got one point and $2125
