NEW RELAY COMPETITION MAKES MOTOCROSS A TEAM SPORT
PAMX Practice Day Provides the Handoff for Red Bull RE-MX, Saturday, October 1
(Pittsburgh, PA) – Red Bull RE-MX is a team-based head-to-head motocross relay race where each rider is a member of a four-person team, but competes against others in his or her own class. It is not your typical motocross race, where it’s every racer for themselves. Now amateurs can team up with their local heroes and literally pass the baton between laps.
Twelve invited teams with four amateur racers per team will funnel through a bracket-type double elimination format in search of a Red Bull RE-MX Championship, with the fastest three teams racing head-to-head in the main event for winning honors. From 65cc to 85cc and B/C-class to A-class, riders will battle against top talent from their respective riding class in each moto.“I expect the race to be different and fun” said participant Tyler Luft, 250B, #50, of the In The Blood Tattoo team. “It’s always good to do something new.”
Local motocross industry supporters and race shops will be sponsoring and nominating teams, with Pittsburgh motocross staples Cernic’s Racing, Plum Contracting, In The Blood Tattoo, and Pittsburgh Raceway Park already confirmed.
PAMX Association President Jeff Cernic said, “This event has all of PAMX talking, and the riders can’t wait for this competition. It will be the best racing of the season.”
Red Bull RE-MX is open to the public, and will take place on October 1st from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Steel City Raceway. Winners will receive prize money to be used at PAMX racing facilities and Cernic’s Race Shops, Oakley goggles, and the title of Red Bull RE-MX Champion.
