Feld Motor Sports announced today that Spike TV will present the inaugural SuperSpills Award to the most deserving AMA Supercross class racer at the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship year-end Awards Ceremony at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on May 9.
The Spike SuperSpills Award is defined by a rider or a moment that captured the attention of the supercross community through a major setback during the season and was able to overcome it through sheer guts and determination and earn the fellow respect of the riders and the fans. Representatives from Feld Motor Sports and Spike will select the rider that has proven to be a Great Athlete with an even Greater Comeback in 2010.
"Spike is proud to be able to present a new award to the riders that truly captures the spirit of the Supercross athlete", said Todd Ames, VP of Consumer Marketing for Spike.
"Spike continues to look for ways to upgrade the experience and exposure for the fans and the athletes of Monster Energy Supercross, and this is another example", said Charlie Mancuso, President of Feld Motor Sports.
The custom made SuperSpills trophy stands in the Spike pit display at each and every stop of the Monster Energy Supercross tour for the fans to get an up-close and personal look at the SX award that will be given out May 9th at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
