Los Angeles, Calif. (September 12, 2007) Pro-Motion Motorsports announced today that the Monster Energy Kawasaki Off-Road team of Ricky Dietrich, Destry Abbott and Nathan Woods will compete in the 2007 AMA/Maxxis National EnduroCross Series.Dietrich, who is now fully recovered from an injury earlier in the year, will be attending all three rounds of the EnduroCross aboard his Kawasaki KX250F. In addition to racing the Denver EnduroCross Saturday night, he will be making the trip to Hollister, Calif. for the WORCS race on Sunday.It will be tough racing both series in one weekend but I am really excited to return to this type of racing, said Dietrich, who missed last years EnduroCross due to a schedule conflict with the International Six-Day Enduro. I did pretty well last time I raced and I know its going to be fun to race all the events.Abbott and Woods will attend the races in Oklahoma and Las Vegas but will miss round one in Denver since it conflicts with round 10 of the WORCS series. Both riders will be competing aboard the all-new Kawasaki KLX450R. Nathan and Destry will continue to focus on the WORCS series points battle, which has gotten much closer over the last few rounds, said Off-Road Supervisor Jason Smigel. We know Ricky can do a great job at representing the team at all the rounds of the series."We are very pleased that Kawasaki chose to compete in the series, "commented Tim Clark, co-promoter of the series. "Riders like Dietrich, Woods and Abbott are all talented enough to walk away with the championship. Their participation is going to make for some great racing.The 2007 AMA/Maxxis National EnduroCross Series starts out in Denver, CO on September 29 then moves to Guthrie, OK on October 6. The final round will be held inside the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas on November 17.
