You may bring food and drinks to consume within the paddocks, however you may not bring food or drinks within the stadium/arena. Additionally, all race personnel, riders, mechanics and anyone associated with riders and photographers must not consume or be under the influence of alcohol or drugs that could affect their normal mental or physical ability. Besides affecting the safety of the event, any such use is inconsistent with the concept of good sportsmanship and is harmful to the sport of motorcycling. Anyone found to be in violation of these policies is subject to disciplinary actions and can lead to forfeiture of AMA membership or event credential.

How do I qualify for the championship round?
The top 3 finishing riders in each class from each event will qualify for the Supercross Futures AMA National Championship.  A rider may compete in multiple events, however, the first event the rider qualifies in will be the one the rider is advanced from. All riders will advance a position in their class if another rider has already qualified out of that class in a different event. The riders highest finishing position throughout all the events determines their heat race gate pick for the Supercross Futures AMA National Championship.

What does it mean to be an alternate?
When a class reaches its class cap, a list of additional riders (alternates) will be listed to replace the spot of a competitor if and when that competitor does not attend the event.  Alternates will be chosen in the order of when they registered on a “first come first serve” basis.  Feld Entertainment reserves the right to make exceptions to this method of replacement due to an alternate’s unique circumstance and as such, we will not disclose what alternate rank you are. As an alternate, you will be notified prior to the event whether or not you have been chosen to replace a rider.

You can request a refund through your rider dashboard. Log onto your account, go to My Events, then edit/unregister class. Follow the steps and you will receive a full refund.  You have until the Tuesday before the event to request a full refund.  After the refund cut-off date, you will have up until 1 week post event to request a refund.  Please send your refund request to [email protected] including the event, the class, the rider’s name, and the reason for your request.  Your refund request will then be reviewed and either accepted or declined.

What to expect at a Supercross Futures Event:
Here is what to expect at the registration check in which occurs on the Saturday prior to an event;
All riders must check in at registration on Saturday.  If the rider is under the age of 18, their parent or guardian will need to accompany the minor through the Registration process.  Registration is open from 11am to 5pm. The first 350 who check in to registration onsite receive a free Supercross Futures patch! 
Most often registration will be in a tent or building on the outskirts of the stadium property or adjacent to the stadium property.  Check out your event information for venue maps and locations of registration.  If you end up in Supercross parking, you’ve gone too far.  Be sure to keep an eye out for the signs that say SUPERCROSS FUTURES REGISTRATION, pointing you in the right direction.
Once you reach the Registration staging lot, follow instructions on where to appropriately park.  Please be aware that this staging lot is temporary parking- there is no camping, long term or event parking permitted in this lot.
First, you will need to rent a transponder.  Rentals are $10 for the day, plus $100 deposit on a major credit card.  Transponders must be returned at the end of the day to avoid any penalty fees.  If you own a MyLaps transponder, you will still need to register your transponder to be scored at the event. 
To expedite your check in process, please be sure your AMA membership is current on the day of the event.  If you need to renew or purchase an AMA membership, you will be able to do so onsite.
You will then move onto our kiosk station where you will swipe your AMA card or manually enter your Supercross Futures registration account to verify the classes you are pre-entered for.  At this point, you can add any additional classes, pending there are open spots available.  Once reviewed and confirmed, a receipt will print which you will then take to the Registrar and Event release station.  Sign the electronic event release, pay for additional classes added, receive your rider wristband and mechanic credential voucher.  
Give this voucher to your mechanic- this allows them to purchase a mechanics wristband at the Mechanic Band station for $30.00.  Every mechanic must be 16 years of age or older.  Each rider is allowed one mechanic to accompany them to the starting gate and stand in the designated mechanic’s area during their race.  
Spectator tickets will also be sold in Registration, on Saturday, for the Supercross Futures event.  The ticket allows access to the pits and the spectator seating within the venue.
Once finished with the Registration check in process, please return to your vehicle and depart from the parking lot to allow room for other competitors to park and check in.
On Sunday morning, parking will start at 5am.  Again, please refer to the venue map to verify where competitors will enter the parking area.  Parking staff will get you parked as quickly and efficiently as possible.  If you want to park with friends, be sure to be in line with them as we will not be able to special accommodations as vehicles are flowing into the parking area.
Track walk will take place at 7:15am and is only for riders and mechanics.  At 7:30am, there will be a brief rider’s meeting to cover on-track procedures and allow riders to ask any questions before on-track activities commence.  Practice will begin at 8am and the stadium will be open to spectators with tickets at 8am as well.
We will run through the practice order one time for all classes.  Please get to the staging line early to be sure you practice with your class.
Once practice is complete, we will begin heat races for each class.  Some heat races will determine gate selection for the main event while other heat races, in some classes, will be a qualifier for the main event.  Those riders that do not qualify out of the heat race will have an opportunity to race a Last Chance Qualifier or LCQ to earn their spot in the main event.
We will generally take a break after all heat races and LCQ’s are completed.  After the break, we will run the main events for each class.  Again, we urge you to pay attention to the race order and get to the staging area early to get called to the gate.
We will be awarding trophies from 1st through 10th in each trophy paying class.  Trophies will be distributed 30 minutes after each main event.

Is it too late to pre-register?
We accept pre-registrations until 11:59 pm EST the Tuesday before the event. After the deadline, you will have to register on site.
