Calling All Supercross Privateers! Team Positions Available on Privateer ShuttleWednesday, December 21, 2005 | 9:00 AM
MXSponsor.com announced today that there will be 4 positions available on the new MXSponsor.com Privateer Shuttle.
The Privateer Shuttle is a grassroots program put together by MXSponsor.com to help several privateers travel and compete in the 2006 Amp’d Mobile Supercross Series.
Founder of MXSponor.com Rich Maychrich says, “The purpose of the Privateer Shuttle is to help several Privateers race the SX series that would not have been able to otherwise. Racers will get to see if they’ve got what it takes.”
The Privateer Shuttle will be traveling in true privateer style jokes Rich. “We’re not a factory team with an 18-wheeler, but we hope that we can make a difference for a few privateers. If we can do that, then it will be a success.”
Along with providing transportation and pit service, Privateers aboard the Privateer Shuttle will gain exposure through committed media partners, sponsors, websites and publications following the shuttle’s progress.
Exposure is a key component to Privateers climbing the ladder in the racing industry. Rich says, “Our goal is to generate enough exposure for these riders that they will have significant opportunities with other teams next year and a shot at a full time racing career.”
The Privateer Shuttle has confirmed the West Coast SX schedule and will be announcing the East Coast schedule in the coming weeks.
Requirements: Privateers must have their AMA Pro License and must have previously qualified for at least 2 Supercross races or 2 Outdoor Nationals. Exceptions can be made.
Privateers looking to compete in the Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross series should contact MXSponsor.com immediately about joining the Privateer Shuttle. Restrictions and Conditions apply.
Sponsors interested in supporting the Shuttle can receive a media by contacting MXSponsor.com.
For more information, please contact Rich Maychrich at MXSponsor.com by calling 888-9-SPONSOR or by emailing [email protected].
