Team Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Manager Jimmy White will go back to his riding days, showcasing ATV racing's earliest days Saturday at Steel City.
DELMONT, Pa. (August 28, 2008) -- The name "Jimmy White" has always been synonymous with the early days of ATV racing. That name will be in the spotlight again on Saturday as White will go back to his days in the saddle, riding a three-wheeled Kawasaki Tecate 250 during the ATV Open Saturday at Steel City Raceway.

The event, scheduled for Saturday, will showcase the talent White honed in the Mickey Thompson Stadium Series, in which he won the title in 1983, 1986, and 1989. White is now the team manager for Team Monster Energy Kawasaki, which has three riders competing in the invitation-only ATV Open: Josh Creamer, Keith Little and Russell Shumaker.

"I'm scared out of my mind," said White with his characteristic dry humor. "I haven't ridden a three-wheeler in 100 years! My riders will be laughing at me because most of them weren't alive when I raced three-wheelers. Seriously, though, this is such a cool opportunity to go out in front of the crowd. There are always some guys in the crowd that raced three-wheelers and I'm sure they'll get a kick of it. It's an honor to do this in front of the ATV crowd, and the two-wheeled crowd, as well."

The Second Annual Steel City AMA Pro ATV Open will feature Pro racing on Saturday, Aug. 30 and a full card of Amateur racing on Sunday, Aug. 31. Tickets start at just $30 for adults and $15 for children 6-11. Children 5 and under receive free admission.
