Milestone season of most prestigious off-road motorcycle racing series to be showcased on MAVTV and MAVTV Plus
CORONA, CA – February 11, 2022 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – MAVTV Motorsports Network is thrilled to bring race fans LIVE broadcasts of the 2022 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, as part of its 50th anniversary season. The 50-year milestone of the world’s most prestigious off-road motorcycle racing series is a testament to the popularity and power of the sport, from grassroots beginnings to a preeminent championship series with global reach, appeal and massive cultural impact. The landmark season will be broadcast live on MAVTV and for the first time on MAVTV Plus.
“Our team at Lucas Oil is incredibly honored to be able to support the motocross industry for the past 13 years,” said Morgan Lucas, president of Lucas Oil. “We’ve seen some of the best-in-class athletes compete in this series, and we’re excited to expand our audience even further on our MAVTV channels.”
The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship is the world’s premier outdoor motocross series, founded in 1972 and sponsored by Lucas Oil for the past 13 years. While the MAVTV broadcast schedule has included several live airings within the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series since 2014, this is the first year MAVTV will air the entire 12-round series.
“At MAVTV, we are thrilled to be a long-time broadcast partner of Pro Motocross, bringing world-class motocross competitions directly into the homes of fans since 2014,” said Dan Teitscheid, President of MAVTV Motorsports Network. “With the addition of Pro Motocross to our MAVTV Plus streaming service, fans can now enjoy all the race action live and on-demand from anywhere. We couldn’t be more excited to elevate our subscription service and reinforce our partnership with the top off-road motorcycle racing series.”
The 2022 season will begin and conclude in Pala, California, over Memorial Day Weekend and Labor Day Weekend, respectively. The championship will visit 10 different states over the course of the summer, where the fastest riders on the planet will battle on the most storied tracks in all of motocross, like California’s Hangtown Motocross Classic, Pennsylvania’s High Point Raceway, Michigan’s RedBud MX, Washington’s Washougal MX Park, New York’s Unadilla MX, and more.
“With more than a decade-long partnership with Lucas Oil, the current era of Pro Motocross has ascended to unprecedented heights with arguably the most competitive landscape in the rich history of the sport,” said Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing, organizers of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. “Now, with the landmark 50th anniversary upon us, we’re proud to strengthen the connection with Lucas Oil to begin the next chapter of this storied championship with a new broadcast partner that will allow us to build on the sport’s legacy. For the first time, Pro Motocross will feature a comprehensive live broadcast package thanks to MAVTV Motorsports Network, making American motocross more accessible to its passionate fanbase than ever before.”
“The opportunity to enhance our partnership with Lucas Oil and unify our broadcast efforts with MAVTV Studios was something that will serve the best interests of our sport, our athletes, teams, sponsors, and most importantly, our fans,” said Tim Cotter, Event Director, MX Sports Pro Racing. “MAVTV Motorsports Network has provided the foundation for live coverage of the Pro Motocross Championship since the 2014 season, showcasing the first motos of every National in their entirety. Now, with MAVTV as the series broadcast partner, we have an unprecedented opportunity to provide comprehensive live coverage of all 24 motos of both the 450 Class and 250 Class during our landmark 50th anniversary season. Beyond that, we can also provide an exclusive streaming platform in MAVTV Plus that provides on-demand access for not only our domestic fans, but also a very significant portion of our international audience, including the native countries of our respective defending champions in France and Australia. We are incredibly eager and excited for the season ahead with Lucas Oil and MAVTV.”
