LAS VEGAS (May 5, 2015) – The fastest amateur arenacross riders converged on Las Vegas’ South Point Arena this past weekend for a full slate of action at the 16th Annual AMSOIL AMA Amateur National Arenacross Championships (ANAC). This yearly showcase of amateur talent featured competition across 29 classes of all ages and skill levels, with 28 winners ultimately being crowned AMA National Champions and several others receiving highly coveted distinctions.

Following a day of practice on Saturday, the entire field of 414 riders entered Sunday prepared and ready to do battle on the track inside South Point Arena. Heat races commenced in the morning, setting the field for an afternoon of main events that would ultimately determine who would be crowned the winner of each class.anac national champs 2015

Each of the competitors at ANAC earned their spot to race for a national championship by competing at Amateur Day during one of the 14 rounds of AMSOIL Arenacross, featuring Ricky Carmichael’s Road to Supercross, prior to the finale weekend in Las Vegas. Riders were eligible to qualify from one of four different amateur regions -South, East, West and Central.

Of the 29 classes that were in action at ANAC, several drew greater attention from those in attendance. Both the AMSOIL Dominator Supermini Class and the Arenacross.com 50cc (4-8) Class kicked off the weekend festivities at ANAC by competing alongside the pros at the first-ever AMSOIL Arenacross season finale in Las Vegas on Friday night. The competition in each main event was exciting, adding to an already memorable night. In the end, Ezra Hastings was able to fend off his challengers and lead every lap of the Supermini race to earn the title. In the 50cc class, Nate Freehill did the same, keeping his challengers at bay to lead every lap and claim the championship.
