Moto-Town, WV – Next weekend, the city of Morgantown, WV will be declared “Moto-Town” in honor of the 31st Annual Kawasaki/Monster Energy Nationals at High Point Raceway, presented by Centra Bank, round two of the AMA Toyota Motocross Championship, presented by FMF.
“The city of Morgantown recognizes the significant impact the High Point National has on Memorial Day Weekend in our city,” said Morgantown City Councilman Jim Manilla. “Although the race takes place just over the Pennsylvania state line, the overall economic and image-building benefits of holding a world-class event fall on Morgantown. We couldn’t be prouder to host an event of this magnitude, prestige and history.”
The official Moto-Town proclamation, signed by Morgantown Mayor Ron Justice, declares Morgantown Moto-Town since Morgantown serves as host city for the event, reaps the economic benefits of the event, and that Racer Productions, the company that produces the event, is headquartered in Morgantown.
The 31st annual Kawasaki/Monster Energy National at High Point Raceway, presented by Centra Bank, runs Friday May 25th through Sunday May 27th in Mt. Morris, Pennsylvania. Amateur motocross racing as part of the AMA Pro-Am Series takes place on Friday. Moto-X-Country racing takes place on Saturday, along with pro practice and timed qualifying.
