Morgantown, W.Va. (July 24, 2012) - MX Sports is pleased to welcome back Sunoco, a world leader in the manufacturing of high quality race fuels, as a supporting partner of the 2012 Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship. Sunoco has expanded their involvement this year to increase benefits to Team Sunoco members, while also giving back to the racers and families that have been loyal to Sunoco while traveling and racing amateur motocross.
As racers and their families begin the journey to the Loretta Lynn Ranch, Sunoco has implemented a Facebook sweepstakes to award one lucky racer with a $200 fuel gift card. All you have to do is snap a photo while filling up at a Sunoco station anywhere in the country and post it to the Loretta Lynn MX official Facebook page at www.facebook.com/lorettalynnmx and you’re entered for a chance to win. Please include the rider’s name and class in the caption. The winner will be announced Monday evening at the rider’s meeting.
Participants of this year’s National Championship can sign up to be a part of Team Sunoco at Rider Registration. From there, members will be mailed a personalized Team Sunoco hard card that allows them to receive a 50¢ per gallon race fuel discount at Sunoco distributors, as well as the Loretta Lynn event. Riders will get Sunoco decals for their bike, plus a Sunoco checkered flag and Team Sunoco shirt and hat at the event.
“We feel privileged to help support and work with all of the racers and their families who have worked so hard to qualify for the National. That’s why we feel that every team that qualifies for this race should be offered a sponsorship and the chance to join Team Sunoco,” said Terry Thompson, Sunoco National Sales Manager. “MX Sports has been an incredible organization to work with and their diligent commitment to the welfare of the racing teams fits perfectly with our goals at Sunoco.”
Additionally, all of the Team Sunoco members will be listed on the website as a sponsored rider on the Team Sunoco page and as a bonus, members of Team Sunoco will be entered into a drawing for a $200 fuel gift card, good at any Sunoco Station in the U.S.
The 2012 Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship presented by Amsoil will take place Sunday, July 29 – Saturday, August 4 at Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn. For more information, visit the series website at www.mxsports.com.
