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.



The website for the Maxxis EnduroCross Series has been completely
updated with entry forms, schedules, information about the events and
the purse schedule. Riders interested in signing up for the events can
do so now. Each race venue is limited to 200 riders, so those serious
about the championship are encouraged to sign up early. All the
information can be found on line at www.endurocross.com

Jeremy McGrath joins NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt JR’s team to race four wheels

Jeremy McGrath, the seven-time AMA Supercross Series Champion, and
all-time winningest supercross racer, has announced his alignment with
JR Motorsports – Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s team – and his intention to run
10 Late Model races this season.





“This is something I’ve always wanted to try, and I’m really grateful
that Dale Jr. is giving me this opportunity to drive one of his race
cars. I’ve got a lot to learn when it comes to racing something with
four wheels, but I’m confident I can pick it up pretty quick” said
Jeremy.





The announcement was made at the grand opening of the team’s new
66,000-square foot shop. McGrath will compete in a limited 10-race
schedule in a Chevrolet late model stock car sponsored by Monster
Energy Drink, with R&B Auto Body Transport Refinishing on as an
associate sponsor. His first race is slated for April 21 at Southern
National Raceway Park in Kenly NC.





According to a press release from JR Motorsports, the addition of
McGrath and the Monster Energy car gives JRM its third late model
entry. Scott Young and Curtis Truex Jr. currently compete in
full-season touring schedules in late model cars sponsored by R&B.
JR Motorsports also fields a full-time NASCAR Busch Series team with
driver Shane Huffman and full-time USAR Hooters Pro Cup team with
driver Richard Boswell. All of these teams operate out of the new JR
Motorsports facility located in Mooresville NC.





“I’m proud to have Jeremy here, and it’s cool to see how excited he is
about getting into one of these late models. I like his approach, his
mentality, and the energy he brings to this shop. I know this isn’t
just some fleeting interest on his part. He is as serious about this as
anyone I’ve ever been around” said Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Live Nation’s ‘Miss Supercross’ Finalists head to Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium

Aurora IL – Live Nation announced the three finalists for the their
coveted Amp’d Mobile Supercross ‘Miss Supercross’ contest for the
2007-’08 season. Miss Anaheim 1 Sara Lipert, Miss Dallas Leticia Cline
and Miss Detroit Chelsea Buhler have been chosen as the three finalists
and the winner will be selected in Las Vegas inside Sam Boyd Stadium
Saturday, May 5.



From Anaheim to Seattle, 13 girls were randomly chosen after submitting
an entry and photo to the official website of Live Nation’s Amp’d
Mobile Supercross. Over 10,000 votes were received during the
month-long poll. The three finalists who received the most votes will
be flown to Las Vegas where the winner will be decided.



“We were able to provide an amazing opportunity for our current Live
Nation ‘Miss Supercross’, Brittney George. We look forward to doing the
same in the second installment of the contest,” said Linda Ardehali,
director of new media, Live Nation. “Good luck to all three of our
finalists!”



Leticia Cline, who lives in Florida and Texas while working as a model
and television host, has been involved with the motorcycle industry,
representing quite a few various companies.



“I’m excited to be one of the final 3,” said Cline. “Racing is a big
part of my life and this is a great opportunity to stay involved in the
industry that I’ve been waiting a long time for.”



As a full-time student at Oakland University, Chelsea Buhler balances
her study time with her role as a Detroit Piston cheerleader.



“When I found out my jaw dropped, I’m so excited to be a part of this
amazing opportunity,” said Chelsea Buhler. “I can’t wait to be around
all the excitement.”



California native Sara Lipert was drawn to the sport of motocross at
the young age of six when she began riding her 80cc motorcycle around a
dry lake near her house for hours at a time. She quickly found herself
growing with the sport as she purchased numerous motorcycles on her way
to becoming a finalist for Live Nation’s ‘Miss Supercross’.



“To have this opportunity to be a part of the sport I love, is a dream
come true in every way, and all the people that voted have shown
amazing support and I can’t put in words how much I appreciate them,”
said Sara Lipert.



Live Nation Motorsports ‘Miss Supercross 2007-’08’ will make her debut
at the opening race of the 2007-’08 Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP
race. The winner will be at every race representing Amp’d Mobile
Supercross at appearances, autographs and on the podium.
