2020 VA State Championship Weekend - Oct 10-11, 2020
As annouced by USA BMX, there has been a change in the state of Virginia in regards to the State Championship Series for 2020. Several of the tracks are prohibited from running a state race this year. Therefore, the minimum eligibility requirements for the predetermined number of SCR races will change to one (1) state race for qualification within the Virginia State Championship Series. As always, if you race in more than one SCR, your best score plus the final will be used.
The Virginia tracks have put together a Virginia State Final weekend with events to be held at VMP BMX. The events will start off with a double point state pre-race on Friday night with registration being handled at the track. A State Qualifier will be held Saturday, followed by the State Final race on Sunday.
Registration for the State Qualifier and Final are ONLINE ONLY with registration closing at 8 pm, Thursday, October 8. To register for the VA State Final Race Weekend go to usabmx.com, Events, State/Provincial/Virginia.

We ask all riders and accompanying attendees to perform a wellness self-assessment before coming to the track. Let's keep all our volunteers, riders and families safe!
All riders must be current USA BMX members to participate in the State Series events. If your membership has expired or if you are a new rider, please go online to USABMX.com to process your renewal or new membership prior to registering for the race(s).
Loaner bikes, helmets, and other gear are not available. You must bring your own bike and helmet for these events. (Full face helmet is highly recommended.)
All riders and parents are expected to maintain social distance from unrelated persons. Masks/face coverings are recommended for those in higher risk categories or when social distancing cannot be maintained. This includes riders when helmets are removed or those not wearing full-face helmets.
Riders should only use designated lanes to go up the staging area to the starting gate. Race staff may limit rider entry into staging area at any time. All riders must comply with race staff directions.
There will be no stopping on or around the track. For gate practice, full laps only with riders returning to staging or properly spaced pit area.
Pits may be set up in the grassy areas adjacent to the track as well as in the inner and outer “triangles.”
As always, full gear is required at all times on the track.
