2011 AMA Supercross
As the 2011 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season culminates in Las Vegas with one of the most hotly-contested championship battles of all time, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas will be ready to host the stars of the sport and supercross’ most dedicated fans.
A sell-out crowd of AMA Racing champions and their families, friends and fans joined the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Friday, Dec. 4., to celebrate the successful seasons of some of the country’s most-talented motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle (ATV) racers.
"All AMA Racers are born and bred with exceptional levels of dedication, talent and guts — but only a few become champions," said AMA Director of Racing Joe Bromley.
Readers of this magazine will remember how Jesse Rooke’s Darla roared off the cover of our September/October 2006 issue. His recent collaboration with Harley retail giant Bruce Rossmeyer has given birth to the H-D Evolution-powered Scrambler. "I wanted to build a really rideable bike like those ’70s-style flattrackers, with a 21-inch front and rear tire," Rooke enthuses.
