McGrath returns to Monster/Powder Mt. MX! – News Release
Eden, Utah (Aug. 5, 2010) – The second annual Monster Energy/Powder Mountain Motocross will once again feature the King of Supercross himself – Monster Energy’s own Jeremy “Showtime” McGrath – racing on the track he designed the weekend of Aug. 19-22.
Last year’s inaugural Monster Energy/Powder Mountain MX drew an astounding thousand entries and 15,000 fans which made this the largest outdoor motocross event in the history of Utah. Sculpted into the Powder Mountain ski runs, the amazing views from the 8200’ elevation make for a highly memorable MX experience.
“The Powder Mountain race was awesome last year,” said pro racer David Pingree. “That event has more potential than any place I’ve been in a long time and hopefully I can get back and be a part of it again. I love getting up to the mountains and being somewhere a little off the beaten path. At Powder Mountain I actually get to race at a location like that … it’s a special event.”
Beginning with an optional early practice on Aug. 14th and 15th, the Monster Energy Powder Mountain MX will span four days from Aug. 19th through the 22nd – the ‘official’ practice running on the 19th. McGrath, who designed the course, will again be the featured Monster athlete. Race registration and camping reservations can be made online. It’s only $50 per class to race on this amazing track over the ski slopes at Powder Mountain, featuring full range of amateur classes – from Novice to Veteran – Pro and Women’s classes.
Parking at the event site is limited since Powder Mountain’s main parking lot has been transformed into the stage for the motocross and vendors. Free shuttle service from Wolf Creek’s Festival Field, 1 mile north of Eden’s 4-way stop, will run continuously starting at 8:30 a.m. Friday through Sunday. Admission to the event is $10 per person, per day and free for children ages 4 and under.
Back for 2010 is the Monster Energy Recycle Program – Bring a Monster Energy can to recycle and you will gain full access to the Monster Energy VIP Pit Area.
Added McGrath: “I can’t wait to get back to the Monster Energy/Powder Mountain MX. It was one of the most fun weekends I had all year on my motorcycle. Great track, great fun and a nice crowd … loved it!”
