Inaugural Maxxis 12 Hours of ATV America to be featured on High Octane television program

12 Hours of ATV AmericaCleveland, OH -- (Fast-Trak Event Press Release) - October 2, 2002 Fast-Trak Promotions has finalized television programming for its inaugural Maxxis 12 Hours of ATV America held October 12 in Fort Dodge, IA of this year.

"We've shot some pretty impressive ATV racing footage from desert racing to TT and motocross events. Quad racing certainly has come of age. I think this event really showcases the true all around best riders, teams and machines from every form of ATV racing", says High Octane producer, Tim Zimmerman. “I'm sure we'll capture plenty of exciting race action. We'll also have a few cameras that will gather footage from each team's pit. There should be plenty of strategies going on here that will definitely aid in the final piece". From what I'm hearing of this event, I think we can come up with an interesting segment that will really highlight what ATV racing is all about. I'm not too sure we'll be able to air any of their halftime TT rental car racing, but I'm looking forward to checking that out for sure", adds Zimmerman.

“The Maxxis12 Hours of ATV America is the one event that has been missing from the sport of ATV racing in the United States. Based on the 50 teams that have already signed up, the scheduled media that will be on hand and now the premier television programming, thanks to High Octane, I feel that the event will quickly become the highlight of ATV racing in America”, says John Pellan of Fast-Trak Promotions.

High Octane airs every Wednesday 10:00 am, 4:30 pm, 2:30 am (all times ET/PT) on Fox Sports Net.
