AMA offers a Card to save you time and effort

For some time now, the AMA has offered to both minors and adult racers the Annual Release Verification Card. This allows the adult racer to skip the multi forms at sign up. It allows all minor racers the opportunity to skip the two sided Minor Release which requires the presence of BOTH parents at sign-up as well.

The card is free, and is issued when the Competition Membership card has either been purchased or renewed for the entire racing year. The form requires notarization of some signatures. Most banks offer notary services for free or a nominal fee.

**Be sure to print the form in color, some of the wording is printed in RED and the AMA requires that and will not accept black & white. If you cannot print in color, please call AMA Organizer Services at 614-856-1900 and request an original color form be set to you via U.S. mail.
