Ryan Hughes ? 2011 Over-30 Champion.

The 2012 MTA World Veteran Motocross Championship will feature two days of racing (Saturday, November 3, and Sunday, November 4). The Saturday races are considered warm-up races for all the classes except the Over-40 Pro class. The Over-40 Pros will race for their share of a $4000 purse. Why do they hold warm-up races before the world Vet? Because riders come from 20 different countries and almost every state to race ? allowing them to learn the track, the dirt and the massive Talladega start to help acclimate the foreign and out-of-state riders to the roughness, elevation and size of Glen Helen.

Sunday’s races represent the actual 2012 World Vet Championship classes. To claim the title, you have to win on Sunday…with the exception of the Over-40 Pros (who get claiming rights on Saturday). The Over-30 Pro class races on Sunday…and they too have a $4000 purse.

This year the Over-25 class will race both days (in the past they only raced on Saturday). Additionally, there will be an Over-55 class this year.

As an added bonus, Glen Helen will be open on Thursday, November 1, for open practice from 8:00a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Then, for riders who have pre-entered the World Vet races the track will be open again for practice on Friday from 8:00 a.m. to noon.
