Jetwerx has stepped up once again to offer more amateur contingency and pro rider payout in the upcoming season. A total of over $175,000 in cash, trophies, contingency and special series awards will be up for grabs over the course of the ten-round series.
The competition of the AX Pro and AX Pro Lites classes saw a drastic shift in the 2014 season as riders from all over the country made there way to various Arenacross Tour rounds. Heading into 2015, with more money on the line than before, you can expect to see even more fierce competition. Riders will be competing for titles in both classes. At each round top riders from the two classes will go head to head in the “Clash for Cash.” This twenty-lap sprint has the largest payout of the event and is a test of true talent.
Jetwerx introduces a twist this year with the “Engine Ice Triple Cup.” Three select rounds within the 2015 Arenacross Tour season will feature increased contingency, awards and the coveted “Engine Ice Triple Cup” championship title. Engine Ice has stepped on board to be the official high-performance coolant of the Motosport.com Arenacross Tour.
Jetwerx has also aligned with some additional sponsors such as Frankfit, Lockstraps, Hemoflo, 661, TAG, Sunline, and Novo Watches.
Motosport.com will return as the title sponsor of the series. “Motosport has long supported the people who love to ride and race. We’re riders and racers ourselves. We share the same passion and visions as Jetwerx in supporting the grass roots of the sport and the stars of tomorrow. Motosport proudly puts our name on the AX Tour,” said Jarrod Rogers, Motosport.com Director of Marketing.
Other returning sponsors include ArTrax Tires, One Industries, Race Tech Suspension, MXSchool.com, Motoseat, Jetwerx Compound, Got Gear Motorsports, Barber’s Cycles, and Hattiesburg Cycles.
Hookit will also return for another season with the Arenacross Tour. "Hookit is proud to continue our partnership with the Motosport.com AX Tour. We have expanded our vision this year by offering the Hookit-Score Track Walk, being able to support riders with our platform, allowing them to connect and interact with each other on Hookit.com and the Hookit mobile app before, during and after the races, will be an amazing new element of the AX Tour to watch come to life,” said Scott Tilton, CEO Hookit.com
“Partnering with the MotoSport.com AX Tour is a fantastic opportunity, which allows ACTIONETIX to build on the momentum and growth of HemoFlo (the world’s #1 selling arm-pump remedy and overall performance product designed for motocross and other action sports athletes). We are very selective in our partners and know that both MotoSport.com and the Arenacross Tour are the perfect fit.

The Tour provides a unique environment for Race Tech to work alongside some of the top professional racers, amateurs, beginners, and veteran riders all at the same venue. Our goal is to provide racers of every level the chance to experience excellent suspension performance and help competitors of the Motosport.com Arenacross Tour properly setup their bikes to chase their goals in a safe manner," said Race Tech's Director of Marketing, Chris Riesenberg.
