Gate Drops for MX for Children 2013 Fundraising Opportunities

Top Race Teams Participate in Jackpot Challenge North American Fundraiser

SEATTLE, WA. – January 29, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – After a successful 2012 fundraising season for MX for Children, in conjunction with Monster Energy Supercross, we are pleased to announce that we will again return to five Supercross race cities — St. Louis, Toronto, Houston, Seattle and Salt Lake City — hosting our Inside Line Experience events while culminating our fundraising with the 2013 Jackpot Challenge award in Las Vegas where our highest individual fundraiser and top SX team will be recognized.

”We had such strong support from so many teams in 2012 that we wanted to find a way to recognize their participation,” said Paul Gross, founder of MX for Children.  “The Jackpot Challenge extends our fundraising support past our five cities to include any fan at any stop on the Supercross circuit.”

The Jackpot Challenge allows Supercross fans in the United States and Canada to donate to MX for Children in honor of participating Supercross teams.  Teams participating out of the gate include Honda Muscle Milk, BTO Sports Butler Bros. KTM, Monster Energy Kawasaki, Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki, Rockstar Energy Racing, and Two Two Motorsports. Now the Jackpot Challenge has a fundraising winner at the individual level and recognition for the top Supercross team.   Jackpot Challenge team fundraising results will be posted each Sunday on the MX for Children website.

MX for Children’s Inside Line Experience is a Supercross series exclusive with a unique multi-day behind the scenes look at Supercross. Qualified participants start with a “Meet and Greet” with top Supercross racers in a private, informal atmosphere for autographs, pictures and an open Q&A. On race day, participants tour factory rigs, walk the Supercross track, pit passes (if available) and enjoy the race with great seats! Our Jackpot Challenge is a season ending grand prize for our highest fundraiser during the Supercross series. The Jackpot Challenge winner receives two VIP passes to the finale of Supercross in Las Vegas including airfare, hotel and meals.
