Dec 6, 2016
Stouffville, ON — December 6, 2016 — Stallybrass Promotions Inc. (SPI) is pleased to announce the series schedule for the 25th Anniversary of the Canadian Motosport Racing Corporation (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, the 2017 series is promising to take yet another step forward.
It looks like there will be another intense battle in the MX1 class, as 2016 Champion Davi Millsaps is contracted to remain in the USA, meaning the 2017 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. MX2 Champion Cole Thompson returns to defend his title against a host of up and comers including Canadians Shawn Maffenbeier, Dylan Wright and Jess Pettis. It’s early and teams are still filling out their rosters, hoping to develop their best opportunities to take home each respective title.
Positive changes were made to the schedule in 2016, resulting in a dramatic increase in series attendance. To continue this positive theme, 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 and 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, providing spectators with excellent views of the entire track.
Update your calendars! The 2017 Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals will feature a summer full of intense, live motocross racing. For more details, visit www.mxnationals.ca, “Like us” on Facebook www.facebook.com/CMRCMX and follow us on Instagram CMRCMX and Twitter @CMRCRacing.
