AMA Pro Racing announces 2006 OLN television schedule

IMPROVED TIME SLOTS, CONSISTENT SCHEDULE GIVE MILLIONS OF FANS ACCESS TO 2006 AMA TOYOTA MOTOCROSS CHAMPIONSHIP PRESENTED BY FMF


PICKERINGTON, Ohio (May 18, 2006) -- The AMA Toyota Motocross Championship presented by FMF announces brand-new air times for its OLN telecasts in 2006. With few exceptions, AMA Motocross will be shown at 6 p.m. ET on the Saturday following the race and AMA Motocross Lites will air on the following Monday nights at 5 p.m. ET. Two events, Red Bud and Unadilla, will be seen the following Sunday, one week after the race, due to scheduling conflicts (full schedule below).


“After a successful 2005 season on OLN, we were able to make big improvements to this year’s schedule,” said John Farris, AMA Pro Racing’s Vice President of Commercial Development. “With consistent time slots and shorter turn around times, not only is it going to be easier for fans to catch the race, but they’ll be that much closer to the action.”


This marks the second year the series has been carried on OLN. The network features other best-in-class events like the NHL, the Dakar Rally and the AFL, and is available in more than 69 million homes. OLN has also renewed its contract with DISH Network, making AMA Motocross even more accessible. Fans who do not receive the channel should check with their local cable operator or satellite provider to inquire about adding OLN.


The 2006 AMA Toyota Motocross Championship has the potential to be one of the most memorable in years, with Suzuki’s Ricky Carmichael aiming to win his 10th AMA Motocross title. He’ll face perhaps his toughest challenge yet in the form of James Stewart of Team Kawasaki.


AMA Motocross is shown in nearly 100 territories around the world, reaching millions of households in key markets. Erin Bates, Brian Drebber and Racer X Illustrated’s David Pingree are slated to provide commentary for each telecast.
