SAN DIEGO, CA – April 9, 2010 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – BillMyParents®, the online teen payment solutions division of Socialwise, Inc. (OTCBB: SCLW), announced today that professional motocross racer and four-time Rally America champion has signed an endorsement deal with the Company’s online BillMyParents® payment solution. Pastrana is the latest high profile addition to the Company’s major marketing program launching late spring featuring numerous top action sports athletes and retail partners.
“The BillMyParents programs are ideal for teens in today’s fast paced world,” says Pastrana. “I hate waiting and go for what I want, and these solutions mean teens can have that too. They can let their parents know what they want with the click of a button, and parents get peace of mind. It couldn’t be easier!”
Legendary Travis Pastrana was the World Freestyle Motocross champion at 14 and has 9 X Games gold medals under his belt. Born in Maryland in 1983, he was riding a Honda one-speed by the time he was 4, and the world gaped in amazement in 2006 when he became the first person to land a double-back flip on a motorcycle. Pastrana is also the reigning Rally America Series champion, a title he’s won four years in a row. The popular MTV show “Nitro Circus” follows him and fellow daredevils around the world as they push the limits with dirt bikes, skydiving stunts, bobsleds, monster trucks and more. Travis is also a big supporter of Road 2 Recovery, a non-profit charity foundation that helps professional motocross/supercross racers who sustain career-ending injures with financial support.
“We’re very excited to have Travis on board with BillMyParents. He is truly an icon in the action sports and racing worlds, and has a tremendous number of devoted fans,” comments Jim Collas, President and CEO of Socialwise, Inc. “We knew Travis would be a great endorser of our BillMyParents payment solutions because he really connects with people of all ages and backgrounds.”
