MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – This past weekend on the waterfront in Morgantown, MX Sports Pro Racing and the ATV Promoters Group (ATVPG) celebrated the champions, successes and highlights of this year’s ATV Motocross National Championship, sanctioned by AMA (ATVMX), with the annual ATVMX Awards Banquet. While reigning three-time AMA Pro ATV Champion Chad Wienen was honored for his efforts, arguably the biggest news of the night came with the announcement that Mtn. Dew® would return for its third season of title sponsorship, along with the unveiling of the 2015 season schedule.
The 30th Anniversary of the Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross National Championship will feature 10 rounds of competition in 2015, visiting many of the most legendary facilities in all of motocross, in addition to a trio of new tracks. Since joining ATVMX during the 2013 season, Mtn. Dew’s ability to be represented by some of the most talented and fearless athletes on the planet made it an easy choice to continue its support of the championship. Serving as one of the world’s most recognizable brands, Mtn. Dew and its partnership with ATVMX has been attributed to enthusiast and current team owner Rich Gillette, who has been an ambassador for Mtn. Dew and the series by supporting every aspect of the most prestigious ATV motocross series on the planet. Gillette’s roots with Mtn. Dew run deep thanks to his grandfather, an independent bottler who began distributing the product in the late 1960′s and ultimately generated so much demand for the beverage that the success provided an opportunity to give back to the same community that helped him reach such notoriety. He remains highly regarded for his efforts with Mtn. Dew and subsequent community outreach to this day by the PepsiCo organization.
