A minor adjustment has been made to the 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross schedule, with RedBud’s double-header now set to take place on the Friday and Monday over the Labor Day holiday weekend.

MX Sports Pro Racing has confirmed that the dates for RedBud will move from 5 and 8 September to 4 and 7 September in an effort to better accommodate the needs of participants.

“After thorough communication with our participating manufacturers and teams, it is in the best interest of all parties to move up the dates of the RedBud National on Labor Day weekend,” said Roy Janson, managing director of MX Sports Pro Racing. “There are several benefits to making this change, both for the competitors and the series and should make for a more compelling scenario for this historic event.”

Organisers have also announced that tickets to select rounds of the outdoors are now available. Due to limitations surrounding COVID-19, spectator attendance at designated events will feature limited capacity, where access will be confined to public areas and social distancing guidelines will be implemented.

The 2020 season officially gets underway with the inaugural Circle K Loretta Lynn’s National on 15 August, for which ticketing is now open. In addition, tickets are also available for both the Ironman National and WW Ranch National, while tickets for the remaining rounds of the 2020 schedule will be made available at a later date.

Moreover, due to the inability to host large gatherings in certain states, spectators will not be permitted at every event. Currently, the Washougal National and the RedBud National will be exclusive to competitors. MX Sports Pro Racing will honour any event tickets that were purchased prior to the temporary postponement of the season.
