American Honda, in association with MX Sports Pro Racing, announces the introduction of the Honda CRF150 Cup. Comprised of two special races held in conjunction with the final two rounds of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship, held at Steel City (Sept. 4) and Pala Raceway (Sept. 11), the Honda CRF150 Cup events will be held the same day as the Nationals and on the exact same track.
Intended to showcase the next generation of motocross talent, the CRF150 Cup will feature significant support from American Honda as well as the Honda Riders Club of America (HRCA).
Keith Dowdle (Assistant Manager, HRCA) says: "American Honda is committed to amateur motocross, and the CRF150 Cup will provide a unique opportunity for some of the best amateur racers in the country to compete on a national track in front of a national audience."
The award-winning CRF150R and big-wheel CRF150RB pack genuine high-performance four-stroke power into mini racers. They feature Unicam engines, race-ready suspension and track-designed chassis for truly groundbreaking performance.
Kevin Aschenbach (American Honda's Off-Road Media Coordinator) says: "We're very excited about this opportunity. The Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship features awesome tracks and huge crowds, and our CRF150R four-stroke is a great bike on which to showcase the future stars of our sport."
In support of this exciting competition, American Honda has posted a significant contingency payout for each event, with over $11,000 in Honda Red Rider Rewards contingency up for grabs.
