MORGANTOWN, WV – September 6, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – MX Sports Pro Racing and Alli, the Alliance of Action Sports, present the Rockstar Energy Steel City Highlight Video, from Saturday’s Steel City Motocross National. The 11th round of the 2011 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship from Steel City Raceway featured an incredible day of action, including the crowning of the sport’s newest title holder.
Throughout the 2011 season, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Dean Wilson has been the most consistent rider in American Motocross. The sophomore competitor boasts the highest point total in the series, and has the best average finish of any rider. Just two rounds ago, Wilson broke through for his long overdue first victory of the summer at Unadilla. Following a similarly-dominant effort last Saturday, Wilson secured his second win in three rounds, clinching the 250 Class Championship with one round remaining, and ending a two-year drought for Mitch Payton’s Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team.
In the 450 Class, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto inched closer to his first premier-class title, following an impressive 1-1 effort, although it wasn’t without some excitement. Following arguably the most competitive moto of the 2011 season, Villopoto made one of the most dramatic passes of all time on his championship rival Ryan Dungey, squeezing by the Rockstar/Makita Suzuki rider in the final corner to steal the Moto 1 win. The last-second triumph set the tone for the rest of Villopoto’s day, and now gives him a double-digit advantage heading into the season finale.
In the WMX Class, DNA Shred Stix/Star Racing Yamaha’s Jessica Patterson grabbed her division-leading fourth win of the season, decreasing the points lead held by American Honda’s Ashley Fiolek to 22 points with one round remaining.
The video is narrated by NBC and SPEED television host Jason Weigandt and includes racing highlights from the 450, 250 and WMX classes.
A video highlight package will be created following each round and will be distributed to all media/web outlets around the world. MX Sports Pro Racing will provide direct links to the video and embed codes for posting onto the web.
