Feld Motor Sports® and MX for Children announced today the five fundraising events for the 2013 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season, including St. Louis, Toronto, Houston, Seattle and Salt Lake City. These Inside Line Experience events will culminate with the 2013 Jackpot Challenge award in Las Vegas where the highest individual fundraiser and top supercross 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 Monster Energy Supercross circuit.”
The Jackpot Challenge allows Monster Energy Supercross fans in North America to donate to MX for Children in honor of participating supercross teams. Teams participating out of the gate include Team Honda Muscle Milk, Red Bull KTM, Butler Brothers, Monster Energy Kawasaki, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki, Rockstar Energy Racing and TwoTwo Motorsports. The revamped Jackpot Challenge has a fundraising winner at the individual level and recognition for the top Monster Energy Supercross team. The 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 Monster Energy Supercross exclusive with a unique, multi-day behind the scenes look at supercross. Qualified participants start with a “Meet and Greet” with top Monster Energy Supercross racers in a private, informal atmosphere for autographs, pictures and an open Q&A. On race day, participants tour factory rigs, walk the Monster Energy Supercross track, pit access (if available) and enjoy the race with great seats! The Jackpot Challenge is a season ending grand prize for the highest fundraiser during the Monster Energy Supercross season. The Jackpot Challenge winner receives two VIP passes to the finale of Monster Energy Supercross in Las Vegas including airfare, hotel and meals.
