MISuperMoto X to Offer At Least a $2,500 Pro Purse

Public autograph session, after-party with Grand National Champion Scott Parker, rally car racing, and dwarf cars planned to draw fans to see supermoto at its finest

The inaugural MISuperMoto X is mere weeks away and its organizer is providing added value items for riders, teams and the fans. The pro athletes will vie for at least a $2,500 purse with the winner receiving at minimum $1,500. Independent pro riders can also have a shot at the Doug Henry Hard Charger Award, presented by Yamaha, with a $2,000 additional purse when they compete in the MISuperMoto X and Rounds 2 and 3 of the XTRM/AMA Supermoto Championship.

Understanding teams’ and riders’ travel schedules, Auto City Speedway, the site of MISuperMoto X, is offering a securely locked, fenced pit area for teams to house their race transporters beginning on Monday, August 11. The facility has proper insurance. Teams and privateers can essentially head straight from the XTRM/AMA round in Connecticut to Auto City in Clio, Mich. near Flint.

The MISuperMoto X is on Saturday, August 16 with a rain date of Sunday, August 17. There will be a promoter’s practice on Friday, August 15 from 3 – 7 p.m. Fee is $40 per rider.

On August 16, the facility will be open for riders and crew members at 9 a.m. Practice will start at 2 p.m. for both pro and amateur supermoto racers. Gates will open for the public at 4 p.m. The amateur heat races begin at 6:10 p.m. and pros at 7:00 p.m. The Amateur Main, presented by Moose Racing, will be at 8:05 p.m. with the Pro Main scheduled for 8:45 p.m. Rally cars will have their heat races and main event run at 5 p.m. in order for the track to be cleaned prior to the supermoto races.

In between the supermoto races will be dwarf car racing, sometimes referred to as legend cars, which will use only the asphalt portion of the course. Dwarf cars are miniaturized, custom race cars using superbike engines, primarily Suzuki GSX-R1000 motors. Thus, the fans can expect a full afternoon and evening of action-packed racing with the highlight being the Supermoto Pro Main.

Prior to MISuperMoto X, a public autograph session will be held at Memphis Smoke restaurant in Royal Oak, Mich. on Thursday, August 14 at 7 – 9 p.m. Memphis Smoke is in the heart of Royal Oak, 30 minutes north of Detroit, with this also being the same evening as Royal Oak Sportbike Night where the Main Street will be filled with bikers. Closer to the event, an announcement will be made with the list of riders who are attending this autograph session.

Following the MISuperMoto X, an after-party is scheduled at PD’s Pub in Flint, which is owned by multi-time AMA Grand National Champion Scott Parker and fellow former flat tracker Dave Donahue. The bar and grille is minutes from the track and features motorcycle racing and sports memorabilia. MISuperMoto X ticket holders, athletes, and crew members will be eligible for drink and food specials by showing their ticket or credential.

Hazardous Fluids has stepped on board to support MISuperMoto X by offering discounts to participating athletes for its new Sportsdrink+ Bodily Fluids, a unique isotonic beverage for athlete performance. Both pro and amateur athletes will receive product information and a discount code for a Hazardous Fluids Sportsdrink+ Triple-Pack following MISuperMoto X.

Moose Racing is providing product giveaways to the top three finishers in the Amateur Class. It is serving as the presenting sponsor of the MISuperMoto X Amateur Class.
