ANAHEIM, Calif. – After an incredible conclusion to the 2009 GEICO AMA EnduroCross Series, presented by E3 Spark Plugs, here recently in Las Vegas – one that saw Monster/Kawasaki’s Ricky Dietrich snatch 50 grand out of KTM/Red Bull’s Taddy Blazusiak’s hands – officials with Source Interlink Media are pleased to announce the 2010 schedule.
Headlining the 2010 GEICO EnduroCross campaign are two new venues that will introduce the sport of EnduroCross to off-road fans in the Pacific Northwest (Everett, Wash.) as well as fans of MotoGP racing when EnduroCross aligns with the USGP weekend in Indianapolis.
“The 2009 season started with a bang and didn’t let up through the final race at the final round,” noted Mike Karsting, VP of Events for Source Interlink Media. And our studies suggest the two new markets – Seattle and Indianapolis – will be key in helping further develop the already solid following for the sport of EnduroCross. Off-road riding and racing is huge in the northwest and aligning GEICO EnduroCross with the USGP in Indianapolis will put EnduroCross in front of a new and sizeable group of two wheel motorsports enthusiasts for us.”
