ANAHEIM, Calif. (Aug. 4, 2009) – After a stellar opening to the 2009 GEICO AMA EnduroCross, presented by E3 Spark Plugs, season in Las Vegas, the popular arena-based off-road motorcycle racing series is about to launch its third-annual GEICO Triple Crown of EnduroCross, with $50,000 in cold, hard cash up for grabs to any rider that can pull off wins at the Guthrie, Okla., Denver, Colo., and Las Vegas, Nev., rounds.The GEICO Triple Crown trilogy begins next week at Guthrie’s Lazy E Arena and the vast majority of the stars that nearly blew the lid off the Orleans Arena a couple weeks ago will be in attendance, ready to get their hands on GEICO’s cash!”Two years ago David Knight literally had 50 grand ripped out of his hands by Taddy Blazusiak,” said GEICO Powersports’ Eric Vaden. “EnduroCross racing’s electrifying enough. GEICO’s Triple Crown pretty much puts it over the edge.”Since the GEICO Powersports Triple Crown of EnduroCross’ inception in 2006 no racer has been able to step up and collect the bounty. Knight’s come the closest, and all reports point to him making another run at it this year, but in the wild and wooly world of EnduroCross racing – and fans that have attended the live events can attest to this – racers can be leading at one moment and then back to 8th place before you can say “I just lost 50 freakin’ grand!”The 2009 GEICO Powersports $50,000 Triple Crown of EnduroCross will play out at the following EnduroCross series venues: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!
