Grassroots racing series are where future legends get their start. That’s why AMSOIL is proud to be a presenting sponsor of the Transworld Motocross Race Series.
TWMXRS started in 2012. The series runs a unique two-track format, which shortens the race day for riders in its 60 classes. The series also boasts free transponders and low entry fees. Consisting of four separate “mini series,” the entire series runs from January through December. Racers travel to some of the most notable tracks in Southern California.

El Dorado, the first leg of the 2019 series, kicked off Jan. 13 at Glen Helen Raceway. Catch a recap below. The series implemented a new stadiumcross-style course for the amateur track, and it appeared to be a big hit. Round two heads to Milestone MX in Riverside, Calif., this Sunday.
