Amsoil-Arenacross-10-10-12AURORA, Ill. – Feld Motor Sports announced today that the television broadcast of the 2013 AMSOIL Arenacross, Featuring Ricky Carmichael’s Road to Supercross, race from Kansas City on SPEED won a Bronze Telly Award. The 34th Annual Telly Awards, which awards outstanding local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs, received 12,000 entries from all 50 states.

“This is a major accomplishment for the AMSOIL Arenacross, and this could not be achieved without the help and support from everyone involved with the sport – from the riders and teams to our production crew,” said Michael Prince, vice president, Feld Motor Sports.

Jason Coleman’s recent announcement that he will be racing the GetPipe.Com Trophy Truck of Gregg Hempel does not mean his 1600 car will be parked; especially when the chance to do battle with some of the best, limited class racers on the planet comes along. SNORE’s Battle at Primm has always been a huge draw for the 1600 racers. Five intense laps on a rough, shortcourse style track run two days, back to back is the kind of challenge they thrive on.

The Coleman Motorsports team had their Wiks racing engine topped off with LAT racing oil, the King shocks dialed in and the tank filled with F&L race fuel in preparation for qualifying on Friday. Jason took the car around the time trials course in 4:13.468, good enough for a top ten start in 9th place. “We had hoped for a better starting spot but 9th is not that bad,” said Jason, “On a shorter course you are in traffic by lap two. You don’t have a chance to build a huge lead in clean air.” The team did a quick check and then put the car away for the night.

Morgantown, W.Va. – MX Sports Pro Racing and the ATVPG announce today the 2013 schedule for America’s most prestigious and longest standing ATV racing series – the AMA ATV Motocross National Championship Series. The ten-race series kicks off March 23 and 24 at Aonia Pass MX in Washington, Ga., and wraps up August 10 and 11 at Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.

SNOWSHOE; Snowshoe, WV — The eighth round of the 2012 Grand National Cross Country Series took place at what is perhaps the most loved and most hated venue on the 13-race schedule.

Snowshoe is unique in many ways. It takes place at the plush Snowshoe Mountain ski resort, which offers upscale lodging, restaurants and many fun off-track activities. Ski lifts provide spectators with easy course viewing access. The race starts in waves on pavement right in the village, just like the legendary Blackwater GNCC event that took place not far from here.

When the riders get out on course, however, all the comforts and quirks disappear and are replaced by what is arguably the roughest, toughest course of the year. The challenge is compounded by an elevation of 4242 feet, which becomes an issue for both man and machine.

But our Team ITP cross country competitors proved to be up to the challenge, scoring wins and podium finishes with a number of ITP QuadCross and Holeshot tire selections.

MT. MORRIS, PA – Team Rockstar Makita Suzuki used the power of its Yoshimura-equipped Suzuki RM-Z450s to tackle challenging conditions at the Rockstar Energy High Point National in Mt. Morris, PA on Saturday. The weather was fine for the first moto at the notoriously fast High Point track; however, a quick downpour hit just before the start of moto two, leaving the track extremely muddy and slippery. Ryan Dungey rode strong, grabbing a convincing second in the first moto, battling the tough conditions for a third in moto two, and ending the day with a second overall. Teammate Brett Metcalfe suffered a couple of bad starts but was able to fight his way to an eighth-place overall finish.

Dungey was strong all day, with solid morning practices and great starts in both motos. The Rockstar Makita Suzuki rider pulled the holeshot in moto one, but a little bobble put him back to second. Dungey proceeded to pilot his RM-Z flawlessly for the next 16 laps and cross the line for a convincing second-place finish. In moto two, Dungey powered his Suzuki out of the gate again in second; however, a couple of miscues in the slick conditions put him on the ground and he fell back to sixth. Dungey pushed his RM-Z450 hard for the remaining 12 laps and was able to come away with a third-place moto finish and second overall for the day. Dungey has moved into third place in the championship points race.
