Movie Screening And Industry Bash To Kick Off 2011 SX Season
The list of celebrities and sponsors for the 2011 Monster Energy Supercross season pre-party is getting bigger as the industry is getting together to host a party for fans and friends. In addition to VIP racing greats like Broc Glover, Danny LaPorte and David Bailey coming, Eddie Cole has confirmed Matrix Concepts, makers of personalized racing stands, is all-in for the festivities. The party will take place Thursday, January 6th at 6:00 p.m. and run until about 10:30 p.m. at the OC Sports Grill across the street from Anaheim Stadium.
“Since we are supporting many of the bikes in the pro pits, it seemed only natural we should be supporting the pre-party,” explained Eddie Cole. “Matrix is looking forward to the 2011 season and this is a great way to kick things off!”
Scorpion Sports Inc. is also joining in on the fun. “Its time to go racing,” exclaimed Scorpion’s National Sales Manager Jon Eide. “Although many people think of us a streetbike company, we like to do it in the dirt as well. We have had great success with the VX-24 off-road helmet and we have an all new dirt helmet coming this season so it is time to celebrate.”
The highlight of the evening will be a special screening of Pipeline Digital Media’s “The Carlsbad USGP:1980” film which has been lauded as one of the best motorcycle documentaries ever produced. “The Carlsbad USGP:1980” movie will begin at 8:00 p.m. “It will be great to see everyone,” said Todd Huffman, Producer at Pipeline Digital Media. “And we can give those fans who missed the premiere parties a chance to see the Carlsbad USGP film.”
