2015 Beta AMA Dual Sport Drawing Winner – David Hurley of NJ

2015 Beta AMA Dual Sport Drawing Winner

2015 Beta AMA Dual Sport Drawing Winner - David Hurley of NJMotorcyclists nationwide are picking up some great prizes from the AMA, and David Hurley, based out of Millstone Township, N.J., happens to be another one. But Hurley certainly put in his work to earn this prize – he is now the proud owner of a Beta dual sport that was awarded to one winner in the 2015 Beta AMA National Dual Sport Series.

Revealing his humble nature, Hurley shared this about the win “I about fell on the floor when I learned I had won,” said David, 58, an AMA Charter Life Member who joined in 1987. “This kind of thing just doesn’t happen to me.”

Hurley only competed in one event for the 2015 season but it seems that he chose wisely. The Hammer run, organized by the Tri County Sportsmen Motorcycle Club was something that he won’t be soon forgetting. Aside from his off-road adventures, David also takes in the cruiser lifestyle as well as several vintage bikes. Needless to say – the man is a bit of a lifer when it comes to two wheels.

Hurley said he joined the AMA because he and his friends were “running out of places to ride.” And that is definitely true. With urbanization, the days of setting off from the back porch just aren’t available to many these days.

“I decided to try a motocross track, and that’s when I originally signed up,” he said. “I keep my membership going because I enjoy vintage motocross and because I know the AMA is fighting for our access as much as it can.”

In the sweepstakes, individuals received one automatic entry for each 2015 AMA Beta National Dual Sport Series event for which they registered and attended. Independent auditing and accounting firm Plante & Moran of Columbus, Ohio, validated the results.

All participants in the 2015 AMA Beta National Dual Sport Series were automatically entered into the sweepstakes for the Beta RS Series. To ensure impartiality, all of the results were handled by auditing and accounting firm, Plante & Moran of Columbus, Ohio.

“It has been fantastic to be partnered with the AMA and the Dual Sport Series,” said Tim Pilg of Beta USA. “We have seen a large increase in our RS sales for 2016, and some of that growth is attributed to the AMA’s dedication to the dual sport series. All of the promoters are great to work with, and we look forward to another great season of events for 2016. Congratulations to David Hurley for holding the winning ticket!”

David will have an important choice to make between the 2016 Beta 430 or 500 RS.

Bikes in the Beta RS line feature a single-cylinder, fuel-injected, four-valve, four-stroke, liquid cooled engine, with an electric start, back-up kick starter and cooling fan kit. The frame was sourced from the 2015 Beta racing model.

If you’d like a chance to win a Beta dual sport bike in 2016, all you have to do is participate in one of the 2016 Beta AMA National Dual Sport Series events. For more information, you can find everything out here:
