Connexions to Represent Pala Raceway in Sponsorship SalesMonday, June 14, 2010 | 10:20 AM
Carlsbad, Calif. – Pala Raceway has signed with Connexions Sports & Entertainment as its exclusive sales and marketing agency for the 2010 Motocross racing season. Connexions will represent Pala in acquiring sponsorships and hospitality packages for the client’s Motocross Championships.
The joining of the two forces aims to generate sponsorship revenue for the raceway as it hosts its first-ever Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship race on September 11th, 2010. The race will serve as the final race in the 2010 motocross series. The Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Series added the Pala National to its schedule after the long-standing Glen Helen National was dropped in early May. "Hosting a National at Pala makes perfect sense" said Bob Walker, President of Connexions Sports & Entertainment, "It’s a world-class track located right in the center of the motocross industry." Ryan Ouellette of Pala Raceway continued, "We’re very excited about the opportunities that are ahead for us - the partnership between Pala and Connexions is a natural fit. Partnering with Connexions is going to allow us to bring in additional top tier partners for the first ever Pala National."
Connexions has a impressive track record in securing sponsorships within the motorsports industry for race teams, athletes and properties and is proud to partner with Pala Raceway in its sales and marketing efforts.
