2017 SCHEDULE SET FOR ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MX NATIONALS
SPI (Stallybrass Promotions Inc.) is pleased to announce the series schedule for the 25th Anniversary of the CMRC sanctioned 2017 Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals presented by Motovan. Coming off the most successful year of racing in the two featured classes, with record breaking attendance and a line-up of world class pro motocross athletes that was second to none, the 2017 is promising to take yet another step forward.
It looks like there will be another dog fight in the MX1 class as the Champion from 2016, Davi Millsaps, is contracted to remain in the USA, which means once again the title is up for grabs. Matt Goerke, Kaven Benoit, Colton Facciotti and a host of top pros will lead the way in the big bike class, with MX2 Champion Cole Thompson returning to defend his title against up and comers that include Canadians Shawn Maffenbeier, Dylan Wright and Jess Pettis. It’s early so you know teams will be working to fill their rosters to give them their best opportunity to take home each respective title.
Positive changes were made to the schedule in ’16 that resulted in a dramatic increase in series attendance. To continue with the theme of positive change, the second round of the series will now be held at the Blackwater MX Track in Prince George, British Columbia. Prince George is the largest market in Northern BC that is packed with off-road motorcycle and motorsport racing enthusiasts. The Blackwater track, located less than 15 minutes from the city, is a natural terrain track laid out on the side of a mountain with an excellent view for spectators of the entire track.
Mark the dates on your calendar! The 2017 Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals will feature a summer full of the most intense motocross racing you will ever experience live. For more details, visit www.mxnationals.ca and Like us on our Facebook page – www.facebook.com/CMRCMX.
