WORN – Winter Off Road Nationals Competition Rulebook


                        About this Competition Rulebook


This Competition Rulebook is based loosely on the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Rulebook in its layout and organization, however the specific rules herein may be different from the AMA rulebook. This rulebook is a complete rulebook, listing AMA rules used by WORN, so as not to be supplemental to the AMA Rulebook.


WORN Racing, LLC (WORN), a.k.a. Winter Off Road Nationals, exists with an association of individual promoters, motorcycle clubs, and other racing organizations. WORN’s role as an entity is to produce a points tracking framework that can be consistently applied at all related events to promote fair competition, and Event consistency, and to produce a Seasonal Awards Event/Banquet.


The following rules are applicable to all WORN events.  Rare exceptions to these rules would be advertised at special events such as inter-Series events a.k.a “co-sanctions”.  At events such as those, specific rules may be adjusted for the particular Event to be suitable for both Series. 


All inquiries or questions regarding these competition rules should be directed to WORN. 







2.1 - WORN: Worn Raging, LLC, a.k.a. Winter Off Road Nationals.  An admistrative organization that brings together individual Promoters to work under a common set of rules and standards and who will track “points” on Rider’s and Promoter’s behalf, and hold a Season awards event.  WORN provides this rulebook as part of the Series framework for all Promoters, developed with their input, and agreement to all of it’s contents. WORN is NOT a Promoter and does not Produce, manage, or control the Event in any way (see “Promoter” in these definitions).

                        GENERAL RULES AND INFORMATION


3.1 - Official Communications


The primary, official mode of communication between WORN and Riders will be Electronic, via the website and E-mail list. 


The WORN Facebook (FB) Page will also get important official announcements. However note Facebook notifications are not always timely, in order, or reliable.  Facebook  does not always show the most recent information in feeds or on the page for that matter, they use their own algorithms to display, thus the reason we find Facebook an unreliable method for critical updates.  So always check the website and Email list first. 


Any official announcements or news will be communicated to all media, however the website is the primary official channel. 


It is the Rider's responsibility to access one or all of these information sources.    We will send out information such as cancellations, postponements, Event location moves, rule changes, location TBA updates, etc. so it is important all Riders monitor the official communication channels.  Monitoring more than one is recommended.
