MX Sports Center Returns to Loretta Lynns
The following is from MX Sports…When the final checkered flag waves to signify the end of each day of competition at the 2010 AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship, there is only one source for the inside scoop on the motos and highlights of the day’s action: MX Sports Center. Hosted by Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship television announcer Jason Weigandt and DMXS Radio’s Kevin Kelly, MX Sports Center is the exclusive daily highlight show of Loretta Lynn’s and has now become a staple of the legendary event.
Since the online show’s 2005 inception, MX Sports Center has brought viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship. Whether broadcasting from the track, the community pool, or any of the varied hangouts at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch, MX Sports Center will utilize the flexibility afforded by its mobile studio to bring something unique to the masses. “Our whole goal of MX Sports Center is to simply bring something different to the viewer,” Weigandt says. “We want to cover the full scope of Loretta’s, not just the racing. That means we need to showcase the hundreds of other things that are available to everyone during the weeklong event outside of what takes place out on the track. However, the racing is the backbone of both the show and the event itself, and we make sure to cover everything major that happened during each day’s motos.”Beginning on Wednesday, August 4, fans at home can catch recaps of each day of competition at Loretta Lynn’s. The videos will be hosted at MotorcycleUSA.com and links can be found on both the Racer X and MX Sports websites. The videos are produced by Racer X Films, the same talented group behind the Racer X Motocross Shows for the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship.The first motos of the 29th Annual AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship kick off tomorrow, August 3, from Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.
