AUBURN HILLS, MI – June 25, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – On July 4, Ram Truck will welcome race fans to the Red Bull RedBud National presented by Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort, round seven of the Lucas Oil Motocross Championship in Buchanan, Mich.
As sponsor of RCH’s Nos. 1 and 20 Soaring Eagle/Jimmy John’s/Ram Trucks/Suzuki Factory Racing RM-Z450 of Ken Roczen and Broc Tickle, Ram will bring a truck-load of on-site fan displays to further energize the electric atmosphere that surrounds America’s highest attended motocross round.
“There’s just something about Ram Trucks and Pro Motocross that seem to go hand-in-hand,” offered RCH co-owner Carey Hart. “The fans at RedBud are second to none and its cool for Ram Trucks to have such a great presence in their own backyard. We’re excited to show off the Rebel and give race fans at RedBud a firsthand look at the best truck on the market.”
Red Bull RedBud motocross fans will have the opportunity to see the new 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel in person from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Ram’s sponsor village display area. While supplies last, fans who visit the Ram display can collect a free gift.
Rebel, Ram’s newest off-roader, started production in Warren, Mich., June 17.
In addition, the first 25 local fans who visit Tyler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Niles, Mich., and take a test drive will each pick up a pair of tickets to the July 4 event.
“With the on-track success that Ken Roczen, Broc Tickle and RCH Racing are having this season, it has been great exposure for Ram trucks,” said Bob Hegbloom, President and CEO Ram Truck Brand – FCA US. “Outdoor motocross fans buy more than their fair share of pickup trucks, because trucks are an essential part of their sport.”
RCH Racing team rider Ken Roczen currently sits second in 2015 outdoor championship points, hot off the overall victory in the June 13 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross UPMC Sports Medicine High Point National at High Point (Pa.) Raceway.
Roczen’s RCH Racing stablemate Broc Tickle logged a respectable outing at High Point with sixth- and eighth-place moto finishes to bring his No. 20 Suzuki home sixth overall.
Roczen is the defending Pro Motocross Champion and third-place finisher in the 2014 Monster Energy Supercross championship. He and teammate Tickle will be at the Ram Truck display area in the Sponsor Village for their autograph signing on Saturday from 10 to 10:20 a.m. at RedBud.
Prior to the Red Bull RedBud Nationals, the riders and teams of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship will visit Budds Creek Motocross Park in Mechanicsville, Md.
The first moto of the Geico Motorcycle Budds Creek National will be televised live on MAVTV Sat., June 27 beginning at 1 p.m. EDT, 10 a.m. Pacific. Coverage for the second moto will be televised on a tape-delayed basis on NBCSN at 9 p.m. EDT.
