Honda announces CRF150 Cup
With the support of promoter MX Sports Pro Racing, the Honda CRF150 Cup will be comprised of two races held in conjunction with the final two rounds of the 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship, Sept. 4 at Steel City and Sept. 11 at Pala Raceway.
The races will be held the same day as the Nationals and will run on the same track. Honda has posted over $11,000 in Honda Red Rider Rewards contingency.
The Honda CRF150 Cup will showcase young motocross riders, male or female, ages 12-16. The Cup will use AMA Supermini class rules and will receive support from American Honda and the Honda Riders Club of America.
American Honda is committed to amateur motocross, and the CRF150 Cup will provide a unique opportunity for some of the best amateur racers in the country to compete on a national track in front of a national audience, says Keith Dowdle, HRCA assistant manager.
The event will use Honda CRF150R bikes as well as the CRF150RB variant which uses a 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels instead of the regular versions 16-inch front and 14-inch rear.
Were very excited about this opportunity, says Kevin Aschenbach, American Hondas off-road media coordinator. The Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship features awesome tracks and huge crowds, and our CRF150R four-stroke is a great bike on which to showcase the future stars of our sport.
