Lead the first lap….pick up an extra $250.00!
Fort Worth, TX – September 25, 2006 – Mike Kidd Entertainment Group (MKEG) - one of the leading motorcycle race producers in the country – is proud to announce the MotoSport.com First Lap Dash at every round of the 2007 BooKoo Arenacross Championship Series.
MotoSport.com, a leading online motocross parts and accessory mail order company, has agreed to a one-year sponsorship for the BooKoo Arenacross Championship Series. The sponsorship includes the MotoSport.com First Lap Dash with $250.00 going to the rider who leads the first lap in the Pro 250cc and 450cc classes both Friday and Saturday night at each round of the BooKoo Arenacross Championship Series.
“MotoSport is always looking for ways to give something back to the sport that we live and love,” says Bill Butcher, Founder and President of MotoSport, Inc. “As a company of motocross and supercross enthusiasts, supporting the BooKoo Arenacross is a natural fit. The BooKoo Arenacross puts on an outstanding series that rewards pros and supports amateurs alike, plus the size of the pro purses really makes for an exciting competition. We’ve watched the series grow over the years to become the premier Arenacross series and we are delighted to be a sponsor of this series.”
Mike Kidd, President of Mike Kidd Entertainment Group said, “We welcome MotoSport.com to our series. I have actually ordered parts online from MotoSport.com and know they are a first class company.” Kidd added, “Rather than a holeshot award like many of the other series, we thought it would be interesting to see the riders battle it out for the first lap to grab the $250.00 MotoSport.com First Lap Dash.
Watch for all the arenacross teams to battle it out at the opening round in Fresno, CA on November 3-5.
