“The level of excitement for the Maxxis EnduroCross just jumped up a notch,” exclaims Lance Bryson, Director of Sales & Marketing for the AMA National Championship, “GEICO stepped up to bring the chance for an outstanding pay day!”
The EnduroCross Triple Crown, now in its second year, was the focus of much attention in 2007as 2-time AMA/Maxxis EnduroCross Champ, David Knight, battled “down to the last lap” in front of a packed house in Las Vegas’ Orleans Arena only to come up one position shy of the coveted crown. After winning the first two 2007 EnduroCross Triple Crown events, Knight was denied the $50,000 by teammate and international rookie sensation, Taddy Blazusiak.
“We are pleased to be able offer this exciting opportunity for an outstanding AMA/Maxxis EnduroCross rider to cash in courtesy of GEICO!” explains Eric Vaden, GEICO Motorcycle & Powersports Marketing.
Both Knight and Blazusiak, along with several other world-renowned off-road racing stars, will be focusing on the GEICO Triple Crown in 2008! It looks like “Sir Knight” will have another chance at “the one that got away!”
