Not sure of the time line you are looking at with the first race.
To get her AMA card it will take four-six weeks to process.
If she does not have the card when she goes to sign up she will need to buy a new membership unless you have the yellow copy from a book.
This is is the busiest time of the year for memberships.
The promoter can not take anyone's word for it that their brand new membership card is at home sitting on the dresser--there is a tremendous liability issue here so they must act on caution and require a new card.
Avoid the long lines and delays and buy early.
Tip for everyone: If you do lose your card, bring your latest issue of American Motorcyclist, it has your AMA # and expiration date on it---proof of membership.
