DENVER, Colo. (March 1, 2012) – M1 PowerSports is thrilled to announce Triumph Motorcycles as the title sponsor of the Big Kahuna Triple Crown, three premier AMA Pro Road Racing events on the series’ 2012 calendar. Triumph’s reputation for producing some of the world’s finest high-performance motorcycles is a perfect match for M1 PowerSports’ mission of delivering exceptional entertainment at an unbelievable value. This year’s 2012 Big Kahuna Triple Crown consists of the Big Kahuna Atlanta at Road Atlanta (April 20 – 22, 2012), the Big Kahuna Miami at Homestead-Miami Speedway (September 21 – 23, 2012) and AMA Pro Road Racing’s season-finale event, the Big Kahuna New Orleans at NOLA Motorsports Park (October 5 – 7, 2012).
“What Triumph represents fits perfectly with the mission statement of M1 PowerSports,” said Cameron Gray, CEO of M1 PowerSports. “The folks at Triumph are dedicated, hard-working individuals who love the sport of motorcycle racing; anyone who knows us will understand why this new partnership is a natural fit. Getting people out to the track is the primary goal of M1 PowerSports and, simply put, it is amazing to begin a partnership with a company that feels exactly the same way we do.”
The world-class racing action put on by the AMA Pro Road Racing riders is enough to hook first-time fans, but the goal of M1 PowerSports is to provide ticketholders with more than just a motorcycle race. At each Big Kahuna event, fans can see their favorite AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike, GoPro Daytona SportBike, Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport and Vance & Hines XR1200 riders attack the track while enjoying non-stop activities, attractions and entertainment at first-rate motorsports facilities.
“Racing is a great way for the motorcycle community to come together to celebrate our sport, and we’re thrilled to be a part of the Big Kahuna Triple Crown,” said Greg Heichelbech, CEO of Triumph Motorcycles North America. “We think race fans and motorcycle enthusiasts in general will enjoy Big Kahuna’s combination of on-track racing and off-track entertainment, and we’re looking forward to having a great time with customers at these events.”
The family-friendly event schedules create a truly unique experience for both the devoted fan and the beginning spectator and feature activities such as stunt show performances by Jason Britton and Team No Limit, classic race bike displays and on-track exhibitions with former AMA Pro Road Racing champions as part of the Historic Moto Grand Prix, motorcycle build-offs and live concerts in the Café Racer Village, on-track fan laps, large expo areas with merchandise and displays, an open grid walk during opening ceremonies where fans can rub elbows with their favorite riders, a free autograph session and much, much more.
