Privateer test days scheduled for Anaheim 2 and Atlanta.

AURORA, Ill. (January 14, 2002) - Clear Channel Entertainment's Motor Sports division announced today that two privateer test days will be held throughout the 2003 season of THQ World Supercross GP and the AMA Supercross Series. The first session will be held on Thursday, January 16 at Edison International Field from 2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m. and the second will be held on Thursday, February 18 at the Georgia Dome from 2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.

"Through our great relationship with Edison International Field and the Georgia Dome, we are offering the privateers competing in THQ World Supercross GP and the AMA Supercross Series an extra day of practice on an official supercross track," said Todd Jendro, director of supercross, Clear Channel Entertainment - Motor Sports. "Clear Channel Entertainment will continue to work with the various venues on the schedule to make this opportunity available to privateers. Those dates will be announced once they are scheduled."

Today's supercross tracks present technical dynamics to privateer riders that demand precision, and the privateer test day will help the privateers hone their supercross skills.

"We (the privateers) do not have the luxury of training on the highly sophisticated supercross tracks that the factory guys do," said Ryan Clark. "This test session helps close the gap between the privateers and factory riders, and I would like to thanks Clear Channel for this. Any extra time on the track helps us out."
