Supersport Rider to Atlanta Supercross

Atlanta Supercross

Monster Energy AMA Pro Road Racer James Rispoli will be at the Atlanta Georgia Dome for the AMA Monster Energy Supercross event this weekend as a guest of the title sponsor.

James who races in the AMA Pro Supersport series and is a top AMA Pro Dirttrack racer will participate in the events autograph signing party along with other Monster Energy sponsored athletes and Supercross participants.

In past years the Atlanta Georgia Dome posted astounding attendance to signify the popularity of Monster Energy Supercross in the Southeast. Over the past few years, attendance numbers have soared past 70,000. Year in and year out, the Georgia Dome has been one of the schedule’s premier races.

"I knew once I was part of the Monster Energy family I would have the opportunity to expand my fan base but I never dreamed I would be at such an exciting event with over 70,000 people signing autographs" said a enthusiastic Rispoli.

"An opportunity like this to represent my sponsor and expose new fans to my racing discipline is just awesome. I’m so stoked to be there and know it’s going to be such a blast."

Chad Reed is coming to Atlanta on a high after earning the 39th win of his career and his first win since St. Louis in 2009. Ryan Dungey earned his fifth podium finish of the season at the last round in San Diego.

James Stewart earned his sixth podium finish of the season. Andrew Short earned his seventh top-10 finish, finishing sixth place. Davi Millsaps earned his second top-five finish and his fourth top-10 finish.

Rispoli is preparing for an assault on the AMA Pro Supersport Series East Championship which commences during Daytona Bike Week March 10-12 and held at the famed Daytona International Speedway, Daytona Beach, FL. James will be riding his Ant Racing/Star School sponsored GSX R600.
