American Motorcyclist Association Announces 2019 Professional Supercross and Motocross Numbers


When Supercross and Motocross season has you running for your bike, it’s time to gear up and get ready. Get your dirt bike parts online from reputable sellers and go ahead and pimp out your ride. Then sit back, relax, and enjoy the races.

The Rules of Numbering

Each year the AMA combines all the points from 250 motocross, 450 motocross, 250 East/West Supercross, and 450 Supercross into one list of names. Riders can then choose a number or are assigned a number based upon the following criteria:

  1. A rider can pick a single-digit career number if he wins a 250 or 450 motocross championship.
  2. A rider can pick a two-digit career number if he wins a 250 Supercross championship.
  3. Riders who are in the top 10 of the combined lists can choose a two-digit career number if they don’t already have one.
  4. All other riders are assigned a number based upon their ranking in the big list. The higher the ranking, the lower the number.

Riders keep their career numbers until they retire or fail to score 25 points in the season. This season, Jake Weimer announced his retirement, so number 12 opened up.
