MX Sports Pro Racing, producers of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, announced today a multi-year contract renewal with AMA Pro Racing and the Daytona Motorsports Group (DMG).

Under the terms of the previous agreement with DMG, MX Sports through its partnership with Alli Sports managed the production, commercial and promotional rights to the championship.

Upon renewal, series management will remain the same as the last five years, ensuring the continued growth the series has enjoyed the past five years.

MX Sports Pro Racing and its promoter and television partners will continue to build the series through its ever-increasing television package, premier sponsorship opportunities, and an overall enhanced experience for the fans.

“We are very proud of all of the event organisers of the National Promoters Group for their continued hard work and dedication to the sport of motocross,” said Davey Coombs, president of MX Sports Pro Racing.

“Having the opportunity to continue working alongside not only Alli Sports, but also AMA Pro Racing and the Daytona Motorsports Group, will only help grow our sport even more.”

The 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship will kick off Saturday, 24 May, in Southern California with the return of the Glen Helen National.
