NMA Wins Breach of Contract LawsuitFriday, February 22, 2013 | 3:10 PM
A jury in Federal Court proceedings in Oklahoma City has awarded a judgment against the ABC Race Association (part of the Ponca City AMBUCS) in favor of the National Motosport Association (NMA). The breach of contract lawsuit was filed by NMA in connection with the NMA Grand National Championship Motocross race held for 33 years at the Jack Blevins Motocross Park in Ponca City, OK according to Ron Henricksen, President of NMA. NMA’s position was that ABC Race improperly terminated the contract with two years remaining. The jury agreed with NMA and returned a verdict in NMA’s favor.
The Ponca City track was discovered by the NMA with the first NMA Ponca City Grand National Championship held there 34 years ago. The improvements to the property over the years are a result of many NMA man hours and dollars which transformed it into a nationally known motocross facility. NMA Grand National Championship Motocross had always been a major economic boost to Ponca City.
The 38th NMA Grand National Motocross Championship will be presented at the OKLAHOMA MOTORSPORTS COMPLEX in Norman, a suburb of Oklahoma City, the new location of the Grand Nationals. This year’s event will be held July 21 through July 27, 2013 at this great location. The OMC location offers many conveniences to the racer families including 400 restaurants, major shopping malls, cycle shops, excellent hotel accommodations and is a short distance from the airport in Oklahoma City.
Qualifying races for the 2013 NMA Grand National Motocross Championship are currently being scheduled in the 34 regions across the country. The dates and locations of the qualifiers can be found at www.nmamx.com. The NMA and the OKLAHOMA MOTORSPORTS COMPLEX look forward to presenting a great 38th Annual NMA Grand National Championship Motocross at the new location.
