Well, it looks like Endurocross is back. As I reported a couple of weeks ago the original founder of EnduroCross and a well-known promoter got together to save the series. Three rounds in 2019 with an eye on a full series for 2020. The AMA is still involved and recognizes the series and from what I know, many of the original sponsors are back on-board with the new owners.
I am extremely optimistic about this series and plan to attend a couple of the rounds later this year.
If you are in the area of these events, you need to make the time to check them out in person. The skills that these racers show throughout an event are mind-blowing.
Below is their most recent news release announcing that the new promoters have the original EnduroCross name back. Looks like good things are ahead for the series.
HAMMOCK AND PERONNARD ACQUIRE ENDUROCROSS NAME AND TRADEMARKS FROM BONNIER CORP
Tulsa, Okla., July 11, 2019 – Tod Hammock and Eric Peronnard have acquired the EnduroCross name, trademarks, website and social media channels from Bonnier Corporation. The duo recently confirmed a three-round AMA sanctioned indoor extreme off-road racing series for 2019 and now will be able to build on the recognized name that Peronnard created in 2004.
“We are happy to keep the EnduroCross name and series alive and aim to make it better than ever over the coming years,” said Eric Peronnard, the creator of EnduroCross.
“The EnduroCross name is well-known, and the social media channels have a strong following, so we are thrilled to be able to build on this,” said Tod Hammock, the promoter of the Kicker Arenacross series.
The three round 2019 series will kick off on August 24th in Prescott Valley, Arizona. The top teams and riders have all confirmed that they will be participating and several sponsors have confirmed their support to help to keep EnduroCross progressing. The pro class will feature a three-moto format, and there will be classes for Women, Expert, Amateur/Intermediate, Vet 35+, and a local club class for each round.
