Rocky Mountain ATV/MC contingency
We are happy to announce Rocky Mountain ATV/MC as an addition to our contingency program. They will be giving every rider a $10 gift card for each of the remaining rounds of the Mid America Series this year.  Each rider will get one gift card per race, not per class.  Please note: Riders will have to make sure we have their correct mailing address on their AMA card and in our database so they will get the cards.

NEW!!!!  The Last Chance Championship!
Since we only had 2 races in the Spring, that made it impossible for us to have a Spring And Fall Championship. So this year we will only have The Last Chance Championship.

Riders that were not able to make the minimum of the 6 races to be eligible for the Full Year End Mid America Championship awards, we will take their 4 Best races. You would have had to ride at Least 4 races of the series to be eligible for this Championship. For example, If you rode 6 races you are eligible for the Full Year End awards. If you rode 5 races, your Best 4 will count and we will throw out your worst. Like last year, these awards will be smaller but the Riders will still be eligible for all other rider prizes and a chance for the Pit Bike at the Banquet.

At the 2015 Mid America Banquet the Mid America MX series will be giving away two SSR pit bikes. We want to know what color bikes you would like to have a chance at winning.

Both will be announced/drawn at the the 2015 Awards Banquet. One will be drawn at the banquet, the first ticket pulled and set aside like we did for the Shades of Gray and JM Suspension rebuild and only the riders that are receiving an year end awards at the banquet will be able to win that pit-bike. The 2nd bike will be raffled off through out the season with all the proceeds going to Action Sports EMS. Both bikes will be given away at the Mid America banquet but you do not have to attend the banquet to win the Action Sports bike. Full details and rules for both the raffle and the drawing will be posted soon.  Bikes provides at a discounted price by http://www.fentonpowersports.com

  Mid America MX Series presented by RAM TRUCKS Round 2 May 4th, 2014
 - Greene Acres - Contingencies: Honda, KTM
WHEEL'S WORLD RECAP
This past weekend marked round number 2 of the Mid-America Motocross Series. This weekend's round saw the re-emergence of Greene Acres Mx Park in Kane Illinois. One of the many cool things about this race series is that there is a practice day offered on Saturday for riders to get a chance to become accustomed to the track. Upon arrival, I noticed that quite a few riders / families were taking advantage of the practice day given to them. It is really cool to see riders turn out for extra track time before Sunday's races, because practice days usually seem to make the racing on Sunday that much better, due to riders getting a chance to become familiar with the layout and obstacles. Another cool thing about having a practice day on Saturday, is that it allows families and friends to just sort of chill out and socialize together before the hustle and bustle of race day. I'm not exactly sure what Sunday's rider count was, but every class seemed to have a decent amount in them and the racing as a whole was pretty good. The track crew, the staff, the land-owners, and everyone involved did a really good job in my eyes of providing everyone with a place to congregate on the weekend and enjoy some motocross! Shades of Gray Custom Paint and Design would like to once again give thanks to all involved for allowing us to be a part of this series, the riders for supporting these races, and would like to encourage those who have not yet attended one of these events to please do so! Thank you again, and we hope to see you all at round 3 in Du Quoin Illinois May 24 - 25!

  Monster Energy is Title Sponsor for the 2013 Mid-America Series
We are proud to announce that the name synonymous with supporting the racing scene, athletes and fans ... Monster Energy ... will act as the title sponsor for the  Mid-America Series inaugural season.
 
  "Most companies spend their money on ad agencies, TV commercials, radio spots, and billboards to tell you how good their products are. At Monster we choose none of the above. Instead, we support the scene, our bands, our athletes and our fans. We back athletes so they can make a career out of their passion. We promote concert tours, so our favorite bands can visit your home town. We celebrate with our fans and riders by throwing parties and making the coolest events we can think of a reality.

At Monster we are all about the things you care about. What kid dreams about landing a 9 to 5 job? We all dreamed about being pro athletes, musicians and living the life. We know it takes encouragement and support to make that dream a reality, so we created the Monster Army to back the next generation pros, the future Ricky Carmichael, Jeremy McGrath, Dave Mirra, Danny Kass and Rob Dyrdek’s.

In short, at Monster all our guys walk the walk in action sports, punk rock music, partying, hangin’ with the girls, and living life on the edge. Monster is way more than an energy drink. Led by our athletes, musicians, employees, distributors and fans, Monster is...A lifestyle in a can"
