Veterans Eligible for Free Admission to Each of the 12 Rounds
of the 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship
Tickets Available Through Nonprofit Organization VetTix.org
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (November 11, 2013) – In honor of Veteran’s Day, MX Sports Pro Racing and the National Promoter’s Group (NPG) are proud to announce the continuation of an initiative with the Veteran Tickets Foundation, where active and retired military veterans will once again have the opportunity to attend any round of the 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, at no cost.
For 2014, Lucas Oil Pro Motocross has donated 50 General Admission tickets for each of the 12 rounds of the Nationals to the Vet Tix foundation. Tickets will be available to all military veterans three weeks prior to each event through VetTix.org.
“The donation of free tickets has dramatically widened the range of ways that veterans can relax, enjoy themselves, share smiles with their families and loved ones, and for some, be re-integrated into civilian life,” said CEO and Founder of Vet Tix Michael Focareto.
Major sports franchises from Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, National Football League, and National Hockey League have also partnered with Vet Tix, as have World Wrestling Entertainment and Professional Bull Riders. Lucas Oil Pro Motocross is one of the first prominent motorsports properties in the country to offer this one-of-a-kind service to all veterans of the armed services.
Vet Tix is a national nonprofit organization based in Phoenix that provides free tickets to veterans and active-duty members of the military and their families. The concept of Vet Tix was developed in 2008 by U.S. Navy veteran Michael Focareto. Since then, the organization has given away more than 725,000 tickets to veterans nationwide.
All active and retired military veterans can create an account on VetTix.org to receive emails and reminders about when Lucas Oil Pro Motocross tickets become available. More information about Vet Tix can be found at VetTix.org.
The 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship kicks off Saturday, May 24, with the Glen Helen National in San Bernardino, Calif. The world’s best riders will compete over the course of 12 rounds of action on the most renowned motocross tracks in the country.
