DC Shoes Inks AMA Arenacross Deal

2011 Arenacross

The AMA Arenacross Series has a new sponsor going into 2011. The famed DC Shoes out of Huntington Beach, Calif., inked a 3-year deal as the official and exclusive footwear sponsor of the AMA Arenacross Series, which begins Jan. 8, 2011 at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla.

DC Shoes has been involved with endorsement deals with some of the sport’s legends, including AMA Supercross champions Jeremy McGrath, Ricky Carmichael and Jeff Emig.

The partnership between DC Shoes and the AMA Arenacross Series is the action sports apparel and footwear company’s first sponsorship of the world’s most intimate form of racing.

DC Shoes will have an on-site presence at the lives events in country’s most popular arenas, enhancing brand awareness and further exposing the already popular footwear and apparel collections to an even greater audience.

Nate Hawley (DC Moto Team Manager) says: “We’re proud to be supporting the Arenacross Series. This series gives riders, such as DC flow team rider Mitch Alcorn, a great platform to race before they enter Supercross and we’re looking forward watching what develops this season.”

Jayme Dalsing (Director of Arenacross) says: “We are excited to bring DC on board as the official and exclusive footwear sponsor for the AMA Arenacross series. The Arenacross series is an excellent platform for DC to channel their widely-popular footwear line as well as their brand as a whole.”
