AURORA, Ill. (December 19, 2001) - Clear Channel Entertainment's motor sports division has announced today that Indianapolis' RCA Dome will continue as a fixture on Clear Channel's Supercross Series.
Today's announced agreement locks in Clear Channel Entertainment's 2003 Supercross Series and continues the tradition by reserving return dates into 2005 with Clear Channel Entertainment.
The RCA Dome has been the huge success story on Clear Channel Entertainment's Supercross schedule after being added to the roster in 1992. Since then, the attendance figure has delivered a solid 50,000-plus spectators every year, while in 2001 setting an RCA Dome supercross record with 55,912 enthusiastic fans. In 1999 the RCA Dome completed major renovations, which included $20 million being spent on new luxury suites, new super suites, two new club lounges, a new state-of-the-art press box, and more accessible seating.
The RCA Dome has been one of the biggest Midwest supercross draws and continually pulls from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Wisconsin. The new agreement between the RCA Dome and Clear Channel Entertainment's motor sports division secures the popular midwest stop for years to come.
"Clear Channel Entertainment's supercross continually brings fans to Indianapolis from the entire midwest region," said Mike Fox, stadium manager of the RCA Dome, "We are pleased to announce our agreement with them to the entire motorcycle industry. Clear Channel Entertainment will be producing and promoting supercross at the RCA Dome for many, many more years."
"Our new agreement with the RCA Dome is another step in the right direction to keeping our sport at the traditional supercross venues that it belongs," said Charlie Mancuso, president of Clear Channel Entertainment's motor sports division, "The fantastic people of Indianapolis should be proud of the world class venue and the world class sport they will be watching live at the RCA Dome through 2003 and beyond."
