It’s a no-brainer for Europeans traveling here as Poland’s Blazusiak is in town; dirt trackers will appreciate the special section for “bikers who walk with a limp.”
IRVINE, Calif., (Aug. 25, 2010) – GEICO AMA EnduroCross, presented by E3 Spark Plugs, came up with a list of ten good reasons for fans in town to catch Saturday’s AMA Dirt Track and Sunday’s MotoGP to check out the action at the Pepsi Coliseum on Friday night, Aug. 27th, beginning at 7:30 p.m..
Top Ten reasons to check out GEICO EnduroCross at the Pepsi Coliseum …
10.) There’s a rumor Valentino Rossi’s going to ceremoniously ghost ride a Yamaha off the giant tires, then run the track on foot waving a massive Ducati flag.
9.) Some of the rock used in the boulder mountains was believed to be cut by locals from the nearby quarries featured in the iconic film “Breaking Away.
8.) We were just kidding about the special EnduroCross seating section for ‘Bikers who walk with a limp.’ We do have seats where you can get mud splashed on you.
7.) During intermission dirt track riders in attendance at the Pepsi Coliseum are encouraged to strap on their steel shoe and walk – in unison – around the concourse (counter clock-wise, of course).
6.) Off-road champ Destry Abbott, probably still glowing from his recent lightning strike, will take the place of Monster/Kawasaki’s injured Ricky Dietrich at Indy. No joke!
5.) Two words: Guaranteed crashes.
4.) Europeans making the trek over to Indianapolis for the MotoGP can rejoice in the fact that there’s a real good chance one of their own, Poland’s Taddy Blazusiak, will stomp the heck out of all the American riders on the EnduroCross track Friday.
3.) Where else can you sit in a padded seat, with a beer, and see guys race – “Live” – over massive logs from the Pacific Northwest, through mud from rain-soaked rural Ohio, around trees plucked from West Virginia, through the sands of the Mojave, rock piles from the Rockies and fresh water from the Great Lakes? Hey, we’re not kidding here either!
2.) AMA Dirt Track fans can pretty much stumble out of the Pepsi Coliseum and over to wherever they camped for Saturday’s Indy Mile!
And the No. 1 reason to check out this Friday’s EnduroCross at Indy’s Pepsi Coliseum … With your help EnduroCross would very much like to match The Beatles’ 1964 sellout (11,000 people) of the Pepsi Coliseum – the group’s only appearance ever in the great State of Indiana. And to show our appreciation, EnduroCross ticket are under $30 – compared to the $3 tickets sold to see the Beatles.
