Irvine, CA (May 17, 2012) – Northern California is a hotbed for off-road motorcycles and Motocross and on Saturday, June 9th, the GEICO AMA EnduroCross series, presented by Lucas Oil will make a first ever visit to this region. The Dirt Diggers North Motorcycle Club, which does an amazing job promoting the opening round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at Hangtown, will be helping the EnduroCross team make this first visit to Nor Cal a big success by providing insight on the area and getting members involved with the event.
“The Hangtown Motocross shows that Northern California has a lot of passionate race fans so we are really excited about filling up the Power Balance Pavilion and putting on a great show with EnduroCross” stated Mike Karsting, VP of Events at Source Interlink. “The Dirt Diggers North team along with several local Kawasaki dealerships have been really enthusiastic about helping to make sure that the first EnduroCross in the area is a big success so we really want to thank those people for getting involved.” Karsting continued.
