Does anyone know what the AMA rules are regarding what class you race in? I have a friend who raced in an AMA sanctioned event in the beginner 250 class (this was his first race on a 250). He came in first with a fairly big lead and was told he was being bumped up to novice in the next moto. He proceeded to get smoked in the next moto.

He is a naturally talented rider but maybe the beginner class that day was a little below average. Anyway, what do the rules say about moving up in class? Do you have to win a certain number of times in your class or can it be up to the discretion of the local track official?
