Any motorcycle enthusiast should check out a pro motocross race at some point if you haven’t already. Watching the pros duke it out is something else. Tickets to the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship have just been released and the gate drops May 19 at Hangtown, just outside of Sacramento, CA, following the Monster Energy Supercross season. Could be a great stocking stuffer idea with the Holidays just around the corner…
Begin Press Release:
MORGANTOWN, WV – December 11, 2017 – MX Sports Pro Racing has announced that tickets to the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, are now on sale. For a limited time, special pricing is available on early purchases to be a part of the action at the world’s most prestigious off-road motorcycle racing series.
The 2018 season will once again consist of 12 rounds, beginning with the 50th Annual Hangtown Motocross Classic, the oldest race in American motocross, on May 19. Over the course of the summer, the championship will visit 11 different states and the most storied venues in the sport during its journey to crown a pair of champions, pitting the best racers on the planet against one another over the course of 24 motos in both the 450 Class and 250 Class.
We’re all eagerly awaiting the start of the 2018 racing season, and its incredible to think that in just a matter of months we’ll be on the line at Hangtown celebrating 50 years of that legendary event, ready to determine which riders will emerge with the sport’s most esteemed title,” said Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing. “Attending a round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship is a special, one-of-a-kind experience for any race fan and what better gift to give any enthusiast than tickets to one of our many iconic venues.”
The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship has served as North America’s preeminent off-road racing series since 1972, and remains arguably the most mentally and physically demanding championship to win in all of motorsports. Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac (450 Class) will look to defend his title in 2018 as Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Zach Osborne (250 Class) moves up the premier class along with a star-studded international field of competitors.
Tickets to all 12 Nationals can be purchased online by visiting ProMotocross.com, the official website of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. Special pricing will be available until December 31.
