PICKERINGTON, Ohio (June 16, 2004) -- AMA Pro Racing has announced that American Honda Motor Company will continue to sponsor the Honda Red Riders Jr. Supermoto Challenge presented by the HRCA. Run as a support class in the AMA Supermoto Championship, the Honda Junior Supermoto Challenge features riders between the ages of 12 and 15 competing on identically-prepped Honda CRF150F motorcycles.

The program will continue to be administered by Danny Walker's American Supercamp and the Honda Rider's Club of America (HRCA). Selected regionally, eligible riders will have the opportunity to compete at one of the seven rounds comprising the AMA Supermoto Championship and top riders from each event will be invited to compete at the AMA Red Bull Supermoto A-Go-Go in Las Vegas in November. Riders interested in being involved should visit www.americansupercamp.com or call 970-674-9434.

Bill Savino, assistant manager, HRCA says participants are once again in for a great experience as they receive the "royal treatment" at each event. "Danny Walker and his crew do an amazing job for us with this program," said Savino. "From the selection process, to bike set-up, to the races themselves, each aspect of the Honda Red Riders Jr. Supermoto Challenge presented by the HRCA is top notch. Just like last year, riders who qualify simply have to show up and ride. Every detail is handled for them from the gear they wear to the professionally prepped CRF150F they ride. We're pleased to continue our support of this terrific program."

AMA Pro Racing will also once again award a U.S. Savings Bond to the top three finishers in the Jr. Supermoto Challenge providing they hold a "B" average in school. Last year's recipients of the bond were Mike Alessi, Jamie Siever and Aaron King.

This is the second year of the AMA Supermoto Championship. Combining elements from motocross, flat track and roadracing, AMA Supermoto features tracks consisting of both dirt and pavement. The seven-round championship will begin in Reno, NV in August and conclude in Las Vegas, NV in November. For more information, visit www.AMASupermoto.com.
