GEICO Returns as Title Sponsor of AMA EnduroCross

EnduroCross continues to thrive in 2015

IRVINE, CA – January 29, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – GEICO will serve as the title sponsor of the GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship. 2015 marks the ninth year that GEICO has been a major partner in the popular indoor off-road motorcycle racing series.

In 2007, the first year that EnduroCross became a multi-round series, GEICO quickly recognized the growth potential for this exciting new form of racing and became a presenting sponsor. GEICO expanded their involvement in 2008, to become the title sponsor and the series has been known as the GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship since that time.
