ITP Grand Slam

MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (May 15, 2008) -- The ATV Promoters Group (ATVPG) announced today it has committed an additional $1,000 bonus for Pros participating in the ITP Tires Grand Slam. The Grand Slam is a championship within a championship being held at the remaining four Showcase Events on the ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA ATV National Championship Presented by Parts Unlimited tour.

In addition to the $1,000 being offered to the Pro winner at each of the four races, the program will award an additional $1,000 to the top-finishing Pro in Grand Slam points. The Grand Slam will also give out custom Gold, Silver and Bronze medals to the top-three overall finishers.

"To make this a true championship within a championship, we needed to ensure we reward consistency," said Sam Gammon, ATVPG director. "The Championship Bonus gives our Pros yet another goal for which to shoot, along with the bragging rights that come with being named the 2008 ITP Tires Grand Slam Champion."

To be eligible, riders must compete in all four remaining Showcase Events. The program kicks off next weekend with “First Base” at High Point Raceway in Mount Morris, Pa. (May 24-25).

Final awards will be presented following Loretta Lynn’s Dirt Days. The overall top three in each of the 34 classes from Pro to Youth will earn custom Grand Slam Series medals.
