The 61st installment of the Motocross of Nations will take place on September 28, 2008 at the famed Donington Park Raceway in Castle Donington, England. Team USA seeks to defend its crown after taking home the storied Chamberlain Trophy in 2007. Incredibly, Team USA is in position to pull off a four-peat and become the first country to win in four consecutive years since the Red, White & Blue reeled off a streak of 13 straight titles from 1981-1993.
The 2008 Team USA line-up features MXON veterans James Stewart (2006), Tim Ferry (2007), and Ryan Villopoto (2006 & 2007). Stewart is fresh off of this year’s historic season in which he raced to a 24-0 AMA Motocross season record, led 369 of 382 laps, and captured the AMA Overall Points Title. Stewart now joins MX legend and previous MXON champ Ricky Carmichael as the only riders in the sport’s history to go unbeaten. Fellow Team Kawasaki rider, Ferry, finished second to Stewart in the overall standings, while Villopoto took home his third consecutive AMA Motocross Lites Championship.
The Motocross of Nations event will not be televised live in North America but will be available globally to fans LIVE & On Demand on MediaZone for just $14.99. All PPV subscribers will be entered into a drawing to win one of four pairs of James Stewart Signature Series Crowbar® MX goggles by Oakley.
