Motocross League of America Continues at Indian Hills MX on October 10-12

The fifth round of the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC Motocross League of America presented by Fly Racing is scheduled for October 10-12 at the Indian Hills MX track in Du Quoin, IL. The Motocross League of America (MLA) is run by RPM Sports, an organization known for operating amateur motocross series in the South. The MLA began last year and aims to create a structured racing series that appeals to local amateurs and pro-am racers alike. It has stops in various locations around the United States.

“We’re focused on the racers who make this sport what it is,” said Dan Thomas, CEO of Rocky Mountain ATV/MC. “That’s why we sponsor events like the Motocross League of America. It’s great to see competitors come out to excellent tracks like Indian Hills and experience what motocross is all about.”

The Indian Hills MX track was built in 2012 as part of a partnership between the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds and Doug Cochran, the owner of another local motocross track. Indian Hills MX is known for its good elevation changes, uphill start with a left-hand sweeper and nearly two-minute lap times. Because the track is part of the fairgrounds, many services are available nearby, including RV hookups.

“Indian Hills MX is probably the most picturesque motocross track in the country,” said Allen McWilliams of RPM Sports. “If anyone has ever wanted to race on a golf course, this is as close as it gets. The past two years, we have seen the rise of new talent from the Midwest. The competition at the MLA Fall Championship continues to grow.”

Friday, October 10 will be a practice day. Saturday and Sunday will feature races in a two-moto format, with the combined results from both days determining the podium finishers for each class. Additionally, a special “Best of the Best Bonus Round” will take place on Sunday. No additional fees will be required to participate in the single-moto bonus round, but only the top racers from each class will be invited to compete in it.
