HOUSTON – The AMA Monster Energy Supercross pits will change in 2011 when fans can hang out at the Violation1.com/Shea Racing/National Switchgear powered by Munn Racing KTM team pit to watch action sports flicks and family-friendly movies. HD Internet channel ActionSportsTV.com has signed an agreement to sponsor the team for the entire 17-round 2011 AMA Supercross series.
ActionSportsTV.com is the action sports content provider for Axiom Entertainment. Axiom developed an Internet channel that makes the movie and TV download process user-friendly for all ages and for all computer skill-levels, taking the next necessary step to blur the line between a user's PC, TV, DVD player, and mobile device. Users can access content via rental downloads, full purchase downloads and by-mail DVDs. It’s a family-friendly Internet channel that offers parents the ability to limit content.
"Our partnership with Shea Racing will take ActionSportsTV.com to the level we have always dreamed," said AMA Pro GNC Flat Track racer Johnny Lewis who is an ActionSportsTV.com part owner. "We’ve been working with Axiom Entertainment for more than two years on this partnership. To use the platform of an established AMA Supercross team that now has ties to a corporate sponsor and the KTM factory is awesome. Back in 2008, I partnered with Tim Shea when he was running an AMA Pro Supermoto team and raced under his banner so it’s great to work with him again. We are excited to provide AMA Supercross fans with entertainment outside the stadiums and sign them up for our giveaway program."
The ActionSportsTV.com sponsorship further enables Violation1.com/Shea Racing/National Switchgear to have the resources to fulfill its racing goals and to enhance its pit party experience. Before the first round, ActionSportsTV.com will expand online content—including motocross videos and related movies—for supercross fans to download. It will also finalize promotions for the 2011 AMA Supercross season.
"I first experienced the capability of ActionSportsTV.com when they were working on the channel in 2008 when I had my AMA Pro Supermoto team," said team owner Tim Shea. "Since our first season on the AMA Supercross tour, we’ve worked hard to take the fan experience to the next level. Our partnership with ActionSportsTV.com allows us to get fans even more engaged through a flat screen entertainment display and giveaways."
