Monday, May 22, 2023 | 6:00 PM
MX Sports Pro Racing has announced that MotoSport.com will return as the “Official Online Retailer” of the 2023 Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing. The online powersports store will retain the cornerstone elements of its multifaceted series support, returning to its longtime role as title sponsor of the MotoSport.com Holeshot for all 22 motos across both the 450 Class and 250 Class as well as its annual event sponsorship of the legendary MotoSport.com Washougal National, the eighth round of the summer on July 22, from the scenic Pacific Northwest. Additionally, the retailer will expand its partnership for the upcoming season by becoming presenting sponsor of Race Day Live, presented by MotoSport.com, the new official pre-race show of Pro Motocross.
“Around here [in the Pacific Northwest], ‘Washougal Week’ is our ‘Super Bowl Week’ and the buzz starts at the end of May with Round 1 of the Pro Motocross season,” said John St. Juliana, Vice President and General Manager of MotoSport.com. “We have an employee base of former pros, weekend warriors, and those who just love watching the sport. You won’t find a more dedicated or enthusiastic group of folks supporting the Nationals than our team at MotoSport.”
A staple of Monster Energy Supercross for many years, the extension of Race Day Liveinto Pro Motocross will further unify each respective championship under the new SuperMotocross World Championship. This one-hour preview of each race day during the season will bring more of the best on-air personalities in the sport, led by host and lead commentator Jason Weigandt alongside analysts Ricky Carmichael and James Stewart. Viewers will be treated to exclusive live coverage of the final timed qualifying sessions of the 450 Class and 250 Class on Peacock and the SuperMotocross Video Pass, which will set the gate for the afternoon motos. Additionally, MotoSport will plan a massive summer-long giveaway contest with the “Ultimate Two-Stroke Sweepstakes” where one lucky winner will take home a 2023 Yamaha YZ250 two-stroke.
“At its core, MotoSport.com is a company driven by the passion of motocross enthusiasts, which has made it an ideal partner of American motocross for many years,” said Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing. “Their commitment to Pro Motocross and leveraging our series to the benefit of their customers is something we’re truly grateful for. You cannot attend nor watch a single National without taking notice of MotoSport’s support and we’re eager to watch this partnership grow even more this summer with the addition of Race Day Live.”
MotoSport.com has led the powersports industry for nearly 25 years by offering the widest selection of parts, gear, tires and accessories for dirt bikes, motorcycles, ATVs and side-by-sides. The company’s continued presence in Pro Motocross and involvement at local level tracks and rider sponsorships shows its clout in growing and preserving one of America’s most treasured pastimes. MotoSport has an undeniable impact on the sport and its continued presence on and off the track demonstrates its dedication to helping amateurs and pros of all ages to get out and ride.
