“Our focus has always been on taking care of the fans and putting on the most incredible shows that we can so that they are blown away every time they come to the racetrack,” said Cameron Gray, President of M1 PowerSports. “We want to show our appreciation to the fans that have stuck with us since the beginning, get fans that have left, back to the racetrack and expose new fans to the excitement of motorcycle road racing and the Big Kahuna. As a token of our appreciation, we want to give back this holiday season through the Holiday Ticket Promotion.”


M1 PowerSports first began promoting AMA Pro Road Racing events at Braselton, Ga.’s Road Atlanta in 1998. This holiday season give someone you love the opportunity to experience the best that the motorsports entertainment world has to offer as the show returns to where it all began for the Big Kahuna Atlanta on the weekend of April 20 – 22, 2012.


When AMA Pro Road Racing heads south for the Big Kahuna Miami on the weekend of September 21 – 23, 2012 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, fans should be prepared to be blown away. With the Florida Keys to the south, South Beach to the north and some of the hottest entertainment value in the country taking place at the speedway, tickets to this first-time event are a stocking-stuffer must.


Two weeks later, the final Big Kahuna on the 2012 schedule lands 20 minutes outside of New Orleans, La. at NOLA Motorsports Park, America’s newest racetrack. Take advantage of the Holiday Discount Ticket offer and join in the fun as M1 PowerSports and AMA Pro Road Racing set the bar in entertainment value with the Big Kahuna New Orleans, the facility’s first professional motorsports event and the last event on the 2012 AMA Pro Road Racing schedule, scheduled for the weekend of October 5 – 7, 2012. When fans aren’t at the track enjoying the show, they can explore the incredible city of New Orleans where diverse cultural experiences range from the party scene on Bourbon Street to a quiet stroll through the historic French Quarter or an afternoon ride on a street car viewing the amazing Uptown architecture.


The world-class racing action put on by the AMA Pro Road Racing riders alone is enough to hook first-time fans, but the goal of M1 PowerSports is to provide ticketholders with more than just a motorcycle race.  At each Big Kahuna event, fans can expect to see their favorite AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike, Daytona SportBike, Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport and Vance & Hines XR1200 riders attack the track while enjoying non-stop activities, attractions and entertainment at first-rate motorsports facilities. The family-friendly event schedules create a truly unique experience for both the devoted fan and the beginning spectator and will feature activities such as stunt show performances, on-track fan laps, large expo areas with merchandise and displays, an open grid walk during opening ceremonies where fans can rub elbows with their favorite riders, a free autograph session and much more.
