World's Fastest Motocross Riders Showcased All Summer Long Exclusively on SPEEDTM and NBC Sports Schedule Highlighted by Multiple Live Broadcasts
MORGANTOWN, W.V. (April 29, 2010) - After introducing the most innovative domestic television package in motocross history last season, MX Sports Pro Racing and Alli, the Alliance of Action Sports, return with exclusive coverage from SPEED and NBC Sports for the 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship. All 12 rounds from the world's most renowned motocross circuits will be broadcast directly into millions of homes throughout the U.S.
For the second year in a row, NBC Sports will showcase the only motocross action on live broadcast network television for three rounds: the Rockstar Energy High Point National on June 12, the Rockstar Energy RedBud National on July 3, and the Rockstar Energy Unadilla National on August 14. High Point, RedBud and Unadilla are three of the best known circuits in the motocross world.
"The introduction of live races on SPEED and NBC was one of the most significant moments in American motocross history," said MX Sports Vice President Davey Coombs. "We are extremely excited for their return in 2010 and we can't wait to continue the tremendous growth the sport has achieved in recent years by being brought into millions of additional homes."
In addition to the trio of live events on NBC broadcast network television, SPEED will serve as the exclusive cable home of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship, featuring a pair of live events with the Washougal Motocross National on July 24, as well as the championship finale on September 11. All seven remaining rounds of the series can be seen on SPEED via same-day coverage, with exception of the season-opening Rockstar Energy Hangtown Classic, which will air next-day on Sunday, May 23, as a result of SPEED's previous commitment to NASCAR's All-Star Weekend programming.
The highly-talented 250 Class will also have an exclusive home on SPEED, with seven rounds shown via same day, back-to-back coverage with the 450 Class. The remaining five rounds can be seen on the Sunday following each national.
The gates will drop and the bikes will roar in the shadow of the California capital of Sacramento in just over three weeks with the 42nd annual event from legendary Hangtown on Saturday, May 22.
