MX Sports Pro Racing Announces Monetary Contribution
to Asterisk for 2014
MORGANTOWN, WV – May 30, 2014 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – MX Sports Pro Racing and the Asterisk Mobile Medical Center (AMMC) are pleased to announce the renewal of their long time agreement that will see the AMMC at every 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, event. To support this effort, MX Sports Pro Racing has announced a contribution of more than $110,000 to the AMMC for 2014.
The Asterisk Mobile Medical Center, and its dedicated staff, has been a mainstay at every Pro Motocross event for more than a decade, in providing on-site emergency medical services to professional motocross riders.
“We would like to thank MX Sports Pro Racing for their continued support and generous donation to enable the Asterisk Mobile Medical Center to be present at all 12 rounds of the 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship,” said Tom Carson, Asterisk’s Director of Motorsports and a former professional motocross racer. “MX Sports has supported us for the last fourteen years-since our inception-to ensure the best possible medical attention and rider safety. We have been partners from the beginning in making sure this level of care is a standard at all professional motocross races. We are excited for the season to be underway and look forward to more great racing like everyone witnessed at the Red Bull Glen Helen National opener.”
“Having the Asterisk Mobile Medical Center at each round of the 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship means our athletes and race teams know that they will have the best medical services available to them,” said Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing. “Dr. John Bodnar, the Asterisk Mobile Medical Center’s Medical Director, and the rest of the doctors, trainers and nurses-and also, of course, Tom Carson-have long served the paddock and the race tracks.”
The Asterisk Mobile Medical Center is an emergency care facility available at each AMA professional Motocross and Supercross event to staff, participants, and crew at no cost. The full 53-foot hospital trailer is staffed with qualified and experienced medical personnel and offers specialized equipment for our sport’s unique injuries. The Asterisk Mobile Medical Center is provided to the racing community by Asterisk. Their operating budget is made possible by Feld Motorsports, MX Sports Pro Racing, AMA Racing, Road 2 Recovery Foundation, Joe Gibbs Racing MX Team, and Pro Circuit, as well as individual riders and private donors.
