Credential Program

Credentials are available to Crew members, Rider Guests, Motorcycle Manufacturer (OEM) Executives, Past Champions, Series Sponsors, Vendors, and Personnel, and Industry Guests.

There are two types of credentials:  Season and Event. 

  1. A Season credential is good for the entire 2017 racing season and requires submittal of a photo and notarized annual liability waiver and release.
  2. An Event credential is only good for the event for which it was issued and can be purchased either online through the racer’s Rider Profile or onsite at Rider Services.

There are two levels of credential access: Crew and Guest. 

  1. A Crew credential is issued to authorized rider mechanics and requires a current AMA membership through August 26, 2017. 
  2. A Guest credential is issued to authorized rider guests, Industry guests, Sponsors, Staff, etc., and does not require an AMA membership.

There are three different credential applications:

  1. Season Credential Application - Rider Mechanics and Guests and Industry Personnel. Requires a fee.
  2. Race Team Member Application - Official Race Team Members Only -- Team Managers, Crew Members and Team Guests. Requires advance Team registration and authorization.
  3. Specialty Credential Application - Credentials are available to Crew members, Rider Guests, Motorcycle Manufacturer (OEM) Executives, Past Champions, Series Sponsors, Vendors, and Personnel, and Industry Guests.. No fee required.

Familiarize yourself with the following terms and conditions.


Allotment:  Each Licensed rider may purchase a maximum of two (2) Season Crew and four (4) Season Guest credentials at the discounted rate. Applications will not be processed until the affiliated rider has been approved for a 2017 license.

Age Requirements:  The minimum age for a Crew Credential is 18 years, Season or Event. The minimum age for a Season/Event Guest Credential is 5 years. A Release form must be completed for all guests under 18 years of age. Children under 5 years do not require a credential, but must be accompanied by a credentialed adult, and a Minor Release submitted on their behalf.

Event Access:

Proper Use:  Credentials must be worn at all times during events and only by the individual to whom the credential was issued. Presentation of a credential signifies to security that the bearer has signed the required releases and meets the qualifications for access into restricted areas.

Unauthorized Use:  Unauthorized or improper use of a credential is prohibited. Credentials are non-transferable and will be revoked immediately if used by any other person.

Replacement:  If your credential is lost, stolen or damaged, contact MXS immediately. Depending on the circumstances, a fee may be assessed for replacement.
