QUESTIONS / PROTESTS

For any questions throughout the weekend, there are multiple places available. The USA BMX registration trailer, finish line staff, or staging volunteers will be happy to assist you.

The Head USA BMX Official will be at the finish line for all protests. They will be able to assist in photo finishes, on-track protests, and any general questions for the race. All protests must be made within 10 motos of the race in question.

TEAM SHEETS

Local or factory, your team takes a lot of pride in its colors on the track. New for 2024, Team racing at USA BMX national events consists of three team categories – Track vs Track, Bike Shop, and Factory.  All Team Sheets must be submitted before the closing of registration. 

  • Track vs Track: Designate your home track with your membership purchase and go racing; no roster or team sheet is required. The USA BMX track department will take scores from each National Weekend and will announce the winners each morning and post the results to the Track vs Track page on the USABMX.COM website for the year-to-date standings.

  • Bike Shop & Factory Teams: Team racing is about the camaraderie of playing a part in a group effort.  Each rider competes for their own best effort and the best four finishes on a team sheet for the days standing against other teams’ finishes. BMX Team racing can be strategy, and it can be luck! Team Points are the overall standings in the Bike Shop &  Factory team categories after each national weekend.  Team scores are verified in the office after the race and published online. The team racing season runs through the Grands, where all teams compete for a year-end award and bragging rights of being the best!   

USA BMX RACEWEAR

Get stocked up on your favorite BMX apparel with USA BMX Racewear. A one-stop shop for all event-specific apparel, USA BMX swag, and some extra goodies the team at TB Products brings to the races.

SAVER STAMPS & AWARDS

Following every National Main Event, riders will be given a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or MEQ ticket, These can be used for one of two options: The award of the day located next to the USA BMX Racewear set up or Saver Stamps located at the USABMX Registration trailer. 

The Saver Stamp Program has proven successful over the years as riders now have an alternative that can help subsidize their racing efforts. Saver Stamps can be redeemed at participating Xchange centers, such as a local bike shop, USA BMX Racewear, or through vendors at USA BMX national events.  Each stamp has a cash value of $.75, and a completed card of 20 stamps has a cash value of $15.


No matter if you’re racing at your backyard National or traveling the country, the 2024 USA BMX National Series is ready to experience your speed. See you at the track.
