Nexen Tire has been named an additonal sponsor for the upcoming 2014 AMA EnduroCross series. The global tire company will be bringing cash incentive to the high-intensity starts with a $500 Holeshot award for Pro Main Events.
Nexen Tire, manufacturer of premium passenger, SUV, light truck and high-performance automotive tires, joins EnduroCross as the series expands to nine rounds with two new cities and venues on the schedule. With the consistent growth of the series and fan base in 2014, Nexen Tire is confident its products will be showcased to a large amount of off-road racing fans.
Las Vegas will again host the opening round coming up on Friday, May 2nd during the Monster Energy Supercross finals weekend. The traditional EnduroCross finals in November will now be held in Ontario, California on November 22nd. The X Games Enduro X event in Austin, Texas will also be included as a points paying event for the GEICO AMA EnduroCross championship.
