Motocross Fans Treated To Las Vegas Trip – South Point/USGP Promotion Winners
May 18, 2010 – Glen Helen Raceway, CA – While he is not exactly Willy Wonka, USGP race promoter Bud Feldkamp is continuing his sweet “Golden Ticket” deal. Two more of the coveted Glen Helen USGP/South Point Las Vegas Golden Ticket winners have been selected at random from the advance ticket sales for the forthcoming U.S. Grand Prix of Motocross on May 30th. In addition to world class motocross racing at Glen Helen, the lucky winners will be treated to a grand prize package at the world class Las Vegas resort, Michael Gaughan’s South Point Casino.
Oda Haensch from Loehne, Germany and Taralyn Barbula from Riverside, California, were the second two USGP Golden Ticket names drawn. Each of the eight Grand Prize packages includes a two-night stay at South Point Hotel, dinner for two at the Silverado Steakhouse and a pair of South Point show tickets. Each week two (2) Grand Prize packages will be awarded via random drawing (for a total of 8 during the promotion) continuing through the May 29-30 USGP weekend. Check the Glen Helen Raceway website to see the winners drawn on 5/10/10, 5/17/10, 5/24/10 and 5/31/10. Of the two weekly winners, there will be one (1) U.S. resident and one (1) international online USGP ticket buyer.
“Since the best motocross racers in the world are coming to Glen Helen Raceway on May 29-30th when the USGP pits America’s best against the world’s best, we figured it would be only fair to award an equal number of the Golden Tickets to GP fans visiting us from other countries,” explains Feldkamp. “Now we have a winner from England and one from Germany.” (Howard Surtees from London was announced in last week’s drawing, along with Michael Tubbs from Simi Valley, California).
South Point is located just off the world-famous Las Vegas Strip and packed with plenty to reward the lucky USGP race fans who win. Some of South Point’s many amenities include the 16-screen Century Theatre movie complex, a 64-lane bowling center and a variety of restaurants. The casino features a large selection of table games and the latest slot and video poker machines. The distinctive hotel features spacious rooms and suites with 42-inch plasma TVs, Point Plush mattresses and WiFi throughout. There is also a 400-seat showroom featuring headliner entertainment and dancing to live bands on weekends.
With or without a Golden Ticket Grand Prize package, fans still have a great opportunity to witness the world’s best MX racers in action at the USGP on May 29-30. Tickets for the “Race Of The Century” are now available at www.glenhelen.com, as well as at participating local Yamaha dealers. Reserved camping is available at the track for $50 per spot.
