Morgantown, W. Va. (April 10, 2012) - MX Sports, producer of the 2012 Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship presented by Amsoil, announces today a change in the Mid-East Area Qualifier schedule. The Clark County Planning Commission has put a temporary restriction on racing at CLCR in Underwood, Ind., forcing the April 21 and 22 Area Qualifier to relocate approximately 10 miles down the road to Podium One MotoPlex in Charlestown, Ind.
"Unfortunately the Country Lake facility was faced with some last minute county zoning issues that require us to halt racing until the issue is discussed further at the next board meeting in May," said Jimmy Povolny, owner of CLCR. "We're extremely blessed to have a good relationship with Podium One and for them to be able to work with us on such short notice to still be able to hold a Mid-East qualifier for the racers."
"MX Sports apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause to racers and their families," said Tim Cotter, MX Sports Event Director. "However, we feel that Podium One will do a great job as we've worked with them in the past and in addition to teaming up with Jimmy Povolny, we feel this will be a great event."
Horsepower Motosports has made arrangements to continue as the promoter of the Mid-East Area Qualifier now taking place at Podium One MotoPlex.
"We're really excited to have the opportunity to work with MX Sports as an Area Qualifier and we're looking forward to continuing the racing at CLCR and moving forward with the development of the track and facility," Povolny added.
Podium One MotoPlex is holding a race this weekend, April 14 and 15, as part of the Podium 1 Motocross Cup series, which also serves as a Kentuckiana MX Series points race.

Who knew? What seemed like any other year, any other Loretta Lynn’s area qualifier here in the SouthEast, who knew? Yesterday marked another point in MX history. Yes, it was the 2012 SE Loretta Lynn’s qualifier and many names have today transferred into the record books from races held and yes, it was the first time SEMX was able to be a helping Sponsor of an LLQ. But, who knew it would also mark the day The Greatest Of All Time, Ricky Carmichael, would show back up to race his first race as an Amateur after such an illustrious Pro career!?
It is hard to not allow this to over shadow the event itself. Saturday, while the track and the pits were flooded from the night’s rain and the mood of the racers was low, the rumor started flowing through the pits that RC was in the house! Could it be true or was this a silly April fool’s joke being played on all of us? I mean, it was March 31, and the day to play humorous pranks was one day away so, why would this rumor be fake? But honestly, do you really think RC would come out of motocross retirement to race LLQ here in Georgia? I found it a little hard to believe and could be heard saying, I will believe when I see it! Well folks, it wasn’t but two hours later I was believing it! After the muddy day of racing, I was invited back to stay the night in a Hotel due to the conditions of the previous nights rain ruining my camping site. After a much needed shower, we were walking out the back door of the hotel and Carmichael himself was getting out of a Chevy Tahoe and walking in!
