MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - MX Sports Pro Racing and Alli, the Alliance of Action Sports, have revealed the recipient of a brand new Honda CRF150R in association with the demographic survey from Turnkey Sports & Entertainment. While the newly-crowned champions of American Motocross celebrated their respective titles at Pala Raceway, Ohio National Guard Technician Chris Johnson, was also rejoicing, after being informed one of the best selling models from Honda would soon be arriving on his doorstep.
Beginning in June, the administrative partners of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship introduced a demographic survey, hosted by Turnkey, through the respective Facebook pages of American Motocross and Alli Sports, in addition to the official series website at AlliSports.com. Hundreds of fans throughout the country participated, and by doing so, were entered into a drawing to receive the new 2012 Honda CRF150R. Just before the festivities at the season-ending Traxxas Pala National, a winner was selected at random.
"American Honda is happy to have had the opportunity to team up with MX Sports Pro Racing, and the AMA Pro Motocross Championship, for this giveaway," said American Honda Public Relations Manager Bill Savino. "Mr. Johnson will be riding a new 2012 CRF150R, the best-selling youth bike in its class."
Johnson, an avid racer in his own right, was notified while competing at the Aces Appalachian Championship Enduro Series. The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to receive one of the finest motorcycles in the industry at no cost is something he will never forget, as it will allow him to continue to share his passion with his son.
"I am so excited," exclaimed Johnson. "My son and I race dirt bikes together, so this new Honda will be a great addition to our collection, and the amount of time we spend together."
MX Sports Pro Racing and Alli Sports would like to thank all the participants in the Turnkey survey. The true commitment of American Motocross fans to the most prestigious dirt-bike racing series on the planet is unmatched, and the motocross community's involvement is integral in assisting with the continued growth of the sport.
