First racer to chalk line in the EX Pro main now earns a cool $750
IRVINE, Calif., (July 14, 2010) – Despite the tough economic times, GEICO Powersports AMA EnduroCross Series, presented by E3 Spark Plugs, is pleased to announce that Mike Girardi of Girardi Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors will donate $750 for the popular Girardi Holeshot Award (up from $500) for all six 2010 EnduroCross rounds.
As with all racing, arriving at the initial turn first is important and Girardi, himself a dirt biking enthusiast, will reward those riders with the quick trigger finger and proper bike set up in order to pull that all-important holeshot. And now that effort will be rewarded with three-quarters of a cool G.
“It is truly a pleasure and an honor to be associated with this great series,” said Girardi. “One of my greatest passions is off road riding and racing, so it’s very thrilling for me not only to be a sponsor, but especially so to be offering the holeshot award at every event this year. Endurocross is by far and away the most exciting off road venue in the country!”
“Passion and the love for off-road racing describes Mike Girardi” says Lance Bryson, Director of Sales & Marketing for GEICO EnduroCross “Girardi has been involved with the EnduroCross for the last four years. He wanted to do something for the riders and what better way then dangle in turn one.”
EnduroCross tracks incorporate various elements of off road racing into a supercross-style setting, including rocks, boulders, logs, sand, mud, a water-hole… and even a few special obstacles like giant tires thrown in! Known as the “toughest racing on two wheels,” this indoor version of extreme off road racing will certainly keep you on your feet. The GEICO Powersports AMA EnduroCross series will be captured by the Versus Network, to be aired on the popular grassroots racing program; The Lucas Motorsports Hour. With its excitement and unpredictability, the EnduroCross championship has always down to the wire and this year will be no different as the series starts and finishes at Vegas’ Orleans Arena!
