Second online auction to benefit U.S. Junior World Motocross Team
PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- Imagine being the proud owner of a race jersey autographed by Ricky Carmichael, widely believed to be the greatest motocross racer of all time.
Or testing your navigation skills with a Traxxas Slash 4x4 Kawasaki remote-controlled truck that is capable of speeds of up to 60 mph or more. How about attending an American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Supercross event in Los Angeles, New Orleans or Las Vegas in style with four VIP tickets?
Lucky bidders have already claimed these rare finds -- and helped out an AMA championship motocross team at the same time. And we're just getting started.
The AMA is organizing a series of eBay auctions to cover the expenses of the victorious American team that took a thrilling win at the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) Junior Motocross World Championships team championship in Cingoli, Italy, this year.
