AURORA, Ill. (November 20, 2001) - Clear Channel Entertainment's motor sports division announced today a three-year agreement with Anaheim's Edison International Field to produce its motor sports events at the Southern California facility through 2005. The agreement makes Clear Channel Entertainment the exclusive provider of motor sports events to the facility.
Since the facility's 1997 complete renovation that reverted the 30-year old structure back to a more intimate and luxurious baseball-only facility, Clear Channel Entertainment has increased its event presence by producing five motor sports events each year in the last three years.
Kevin Uhlich, vice president of ballpark operations for Edison International Field, said, "We are truly excited to ensure three more years of spectacular motor sports events at our ballpark. Of the 15 events Clear Channel has recently produced and promoted, 13 have been sell-outs. It was also important for us to confirm that supercross would be coming back to its annual premiere home in Southern California. Supercross and Clear Channel Entertainment belong at Edison International Field."
Charlie Mancuso, president of Clear Channel Entertainment's motor sports division, said, "We do five weekends of events at Edison International Field every first quarter that have a tremendous track record of success. We are pleased to confirm that the path of both the EA SPORTS Supercross and the Monster Jam successful events are now confirmed for three years. For supercross, Anaheim is the epicenter for fans, riders and the industry - the sport belongs at Edison Field."
