Morgantown, West Virginia Declared Moto-TownTuesday, May 23, 2006 | 12:29 PM
Moto-Town, WV – This weekend, the city of Morgantown, WV will be declared “Moto-Town” in honor of the 30th Annual Kawasaki/Monster Energy Nationals at High Point Raceway, presented by Anderson & Strudwick, Round 2 of the AMA Toyota Motocross Championship, presented by FMF.
“The city of Morgantown recognizes the significant impact the High Point National has on Memorial Day Weekend in our city,” said Morgantown Deputy Mayor Jim Manilla. “Although the race takes place just over the Pennsylvania state line, the overall economic and image-building benefits of holding a world-class event fall on Morgantown. We couldn’t be prouder to host an event of this magnitude, prestige and history.”
The official Moto-Town proclamation, signed by Morgantown Mayor Ron Justice, declares Morgantown Moto-Town since Morgantown serves as host city for the event, reaps the economic benefits of the event, and that Racer Productions, the company that produces the event, is headquartered in Morgantown.
The 30th annual Kawasaki/Monster Energy National at High Point Raceway, presented by Anderson & Strudwick, runs Friday May 26th through Sunday May 28th in Mt. Morris, Pennsylvania. Amateur motocross racing in the Team Green Spring National takes place on Friday. Pro practice and qualifying runs on Saturday. Pro racing is Sunday starting at 1 pm. Sunday’s gate admission is $30 for adults and $15 for kids 6-12. Family seating is available. For more information, log on to www.racerproductions.com or call 304-284-0084.
