ANAHEIM, Calif. (June 19, 2008) The organizers of the AMA/Maxxis EnduroCross Championship Series, presented by Lucas Oil, announced today that Baja Designs, the premier supplier of race lighting, off-road lighting and many other motorcycle and ATV enhancing products, will once again be the official sponsor of the 2008 EnduroCross Baja Designs Night Race. For the past two years, Baja Designs has supported this unique EX concept, the world’s first indoor night race, which sees riders mount Baja Designs lighting equipment to their off-road motorcycles and race in the dark!
“We are very proud to be able to continue this exciting race with Baja Designs,” exclaims Eric Peronnard, EnduroCross originator. “Their remarkable products are what make this unique race possible… and its amazing just how well the lights work!”
The riders chosen to compete in this extraordinary race are those that miss the opportunity to transfer from the Expert LCQ into the Main Event. As a bit of a consolation, they are then tapped to outfit their race bikes with Baja Designs lighting equipment and compete with the Arena lights off! And this is not just for a good show… the winner receives $500 cash, courtesy of Baja Designs.
"We are very proud to be such a big part of EnduroCross and the exciting Night Race,” claims Baja Designs President, Deanne Moore. “When they approached us a few years ago with this unusual race concept, it was obvious that it was a perfect fit for our company!”
The Baja Designs Night Race will take place at the Las Vegas rounds of the championship, as the magnificent Orleans Arena has suitable lighting that can be turned off then back on in a hurry. Round 5 in Columbus , Ohio may also include a Baja Designs Night Race.
The start of the AMA EnduroCross season is just a couple weeks away and the stars of Off-Road racing are gearing up to head indoors and contest the “toughest racing on two-wheels!” Make plans to check out Round 1 of the AMA/Maxxis EnduroCross Championship Series in Las Vegas ’ Orleans Arena on July 5th, 2008 ; and be sure to tune into the Versus Network’s Lucas Oil Motorsports Hour for up-close and personal coverage of the series.
