Pro-Motion Motorsports Announces Maxxis EnduroCross Series
The Maxxis EnduroCross Becomes An AMA Sanctioned Series
Los Angeles, CA (April 18, 2007) – Pro-Motion Motorsports announced
today the Maxxis EnduroCross will become a three round series with
venues in Denver, CO, Guthrie, OK and the final round in Las Vegas. The
series will be AMA sanctioned with a number one plate and $40,000 in
purse money up for grabs.
“This is the start of what we expect to become a much larger series
within the next few years,” explained Eric Peronnard, co-promoter of the
event. “The Las Vegas race has proven to be a huge success, it’s now
time to start taking EnduroCross across the country.” The Denver round
takes place on Saturday, September 29 while the Oklahoma round is
scheduled for Saturday, October 6th. The Las Vegas weekend will operate
very similarly to the 2006 event – there will be a Qualifier Round on
Friday, November 16 with the Championship final round taking place the
following night, Saturday, November 17.
“We already have additional venues on the schedule for 2008,” continued
Peronnard, the original creator of the U.S. Open of Supercross and
co-creator/producer of EnduroCross. “The three race series is a good
start. It’s important that we have a solid base of quality events and
let them grow accordingly. You can count on seeing EnduroCross on the
eastern side of the country in ’08 – we know there is a lot of support
in that area.”
The three race series will boast a $40,000 total purse payout, which
includes individual purses for each event, along with a $10,000 Maxxis
EnduroCross Series fund paid out to the top riders in the series.
Scoring for each race will be similar to that of an AMA supercross with
points earned based upon the riders finishing position. The Las Vegas
round will serve as a Double Points event… the overall winner of the
series will be crowned the AMA EnduroCross Champion.
