Stateline Supermoto Challenge

 

The Stars Come Out and Shine One Week Before the
X-Games at the April 4 -6 Stateline Supermoto Challenge

Primm, Nevada -- Some of the brightest Supermoto Stars in the business have the April 4 -6,  Stateline Supermoto Challenge inked on their calendar as the kickoff of their 2008 season. A treat for fans and racers alike is the return of  the Godfather, Mike Metzger, to Supermoto action at Stateline.

Action Sports fans know his trademark move of back-to-back flips to win Freestyle gold at X-Games in 2002. With his style and enthusiasm he is sure to put on a show.

Pro racers including Chris Fillmore, Troy Herfoss, Brandon Currie, Gary Trachy, Steve Drew, Micky Dymond and Danny Casey have committed to the three day event and will be racing for pride and of course, the pro purse.

Brandon Currie will be competing on a Graves YZ 450 at the Stateline Supermoto Challenge as a tune up for the ESPN Moto X World Championships X-Games in San Diego the following week.

"Since Stateline doesn't have the pressure of the X-Games or the AMA Supermoto Championship Series, the racing is a lot of fun and everyone is out their showing what they are capable of and providing the fans with good battles," said Currie.

Gary Trachy has moved from Husqvarna motorcycles to Yamaha for the 2008 season. He is affiliated with Graves Motorsports and Team Graves Yamaha and will run the YZ 450 equipment. Trachy will also be conducting a Supermoto School on Thursday April 3 at Stateline.

"You have to hand it to Marche Karger, Event Manager Organizer and Supermoto racer, he builds outstanding dirt sections that incorporate table tops for the amateurs and the pros. The dirt is exciting for the fans and just the thing I need to get ready for the X-Games,"  explained Trachy.

Since the Stateline Supermoto Challenge contains a big dirt section and a large parking lot road section, racers find it ideal to work on their set up as it parallels the racing at the National AMA Supermoto rounds.

Micky Dymond is looking forward to the Stateline contest to get a full race simulation and see what the competition has and how far the team needs to go to be competitive for 2008.

"This is my third year in a row at Stateline and it's a great event with a ton of things to do," said Dymond. "Some of the best riders, amateur and pro, are competing at this event."

Speaking of entertainment, the Jagermeister Music mobile concert stage will be kicking the weekend off with a Guitar Hero contest on Friday night. Saturday afternoon, the So-Cal all girl rock band Pretty-In-Stereo hits the Jagermeister stage.  After the racing action is finished on Saturday, the ultra fun rock n' roll karaoke band, Cover Me Badd will be rocking out with singers from the audience jumping up on stage to showcase their vocal talents.

Tickets with pit passes are $30.00 for the weekend, and $15 for a day at the gate. Racers can pre-register sign up at XBUX.com, or sign up at the event. Complete event information is available at www.statelinechallenge.com.
