North American Supermoto (NASMOTO), a new organization designed to expand the supermoto discipline in North America, has received the official blessing of the AMA and Supermoto Canada along with inscriptions from the FIM and NAMU.
"The NASMOTO Grand Prix will be a terrific grass-roots program to help build riders for the AMA Pro Supermoto Championship," noted AMA Sports Senior Director Douglas Neubauer. "The AMA is excited about the evolving opportunities for Supermoto in North America, and NASMOTO is a great way to grow the sport at all levels, benefiting everyone from promising beginners to the AMA Pro Racing Supermoto Series."
The NASMOTO Grand Prix for all levels of Supermoto riders kicks off June 18-19, 2005, at the USA International Raceway in Shawano, Wisc. Dubbed the NASMOTO Grand Prix of Green Bay, it is scheduled to precede races in Cleveland, Toronto, Southern California, the Northwest and Southeast regions, and at October's Red Bull Supermoto-A-Go-Go on the streets of Reno, NV. NASMOTO will also produce the 2005 AMA Supermoto Grand Championship for riders who qualify at 2005 NASMOTO Grand Prix events.
Ted Baker, Vice President of NASMOTO and President of Supermoto Canada, says the organization is actively seeking out promoters to be included in the AMA-sanctioned NASMOTO program.
