January 3, 2012 (Wortham, Texas) - January 3, 2012 (Wortham, Texas) - Freestone County Raceway, LLC, promoter of the AMA Spring Championship, is pleased to announce a partnership with James Stewart Entertainment (JSE) to form the James Stewart AMA Spring Championship at Freestone Raceway in Wortham, Texas from February 28 through March 3, 2012.
Morgantown, W. Va. (January 2, 2012) - Racer Productions is pleased to announce today's launch of NBC Sports Network, formally Versus Network, as the official place to watch RacerTV 's coverage of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series, the AMA ATV Motocross National Championship Series and the Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship presented by Amsoil.
Versus makes the name change to NBC Sports Network today at 4 p.m. EST with the airing of the NHL Winter Classic. Furthermore, NBC Sports Network will keep a steady stream of live sports on air in 2012, including the National Hockey League (NHL), Major League Soccer (MLS) and the summer Olympics in London.
"I think the addition of RacerTV on NBC Sports Network is huge for our sport," said RacerTV Producer, Jason Hooper. "To have ATV and motorcycle races air on the same network as NHL and the Olympics will bring in more viewers outside of the sport and hopefully turn them into fans!"
RacerTV features weekly powersports programs, airing Sunday evenings at 5:30 p.m on NBC Sports Network. The complete 2012 RacerTV schedule will be released soon and all times are subject to change.
The 2012 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series (motorcycle and ATV) kicks off once again at Westgate River Ranch Resort in River Ranch, Fla., in conjunction with Daytona Bike Week on March 10-13. For more information visit www.gnccracing.com.

“The Ponca City Grand National Championship Motocross is moving to a bigger, better and a more convenient location” announced Ron Henricksen, President of the NMA. The OKLAHOMA MOTORSPORTS COMPLEX, located in Norman, Oklahoma has been designated as new home of the Grand Nationals. Next year’s event will be held July 22 through July 28, 2012 at this great new location. After a recent trip to Oklahoma and seeing this great facility and meeting with the enthusiastic property owners the decision was made to select this new location.
The OKLAHOMA MOTORSPORTS COMPLEX has all new 50 amp electrical hook-ups, plenty of pit parking and a 100% viewable track. A national Go-Kart facility on the property with kart rentals will be available during the Grand Nationals.
The city of Norman offers many conveniences to the racer families including 400 restaurants, major shopping malls and stores and excellent hotel accommodations. Sooner Legends Inn and Suites in Norman, Oklahoma will be Hotel Race Headquarters and they are offering special rates for racers during the Grand Nationals.
The new location will make travel for the racers much more convenient. The OKLAHOMA MOTORSPORTS COMPLEX is located on I-35 and is close to Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City. It will be closer for those traveling to Tennessee for the next major motocross event the following week.
The previous location in Ponca City was discovered by the NMA with the first NMA Ponca City Grand National Championship held there 33 years ago. At that time the city owned property was a riding area for local kids. The improvements to the property over the years are a result of many NMA man hours and dollars which transformed it into a nationally known motocross facility. The NMA Grand National Championship Motocross event at Ponca City has resulted in millions of dollars to Ponca City and their local charities.
Qualifying races for the 2012 Grand Nationals are currently being scheduled in the 40 regions across the country. The dates and locations of the qualifiers can be found at www.nmamx.com. The NMA and the OKLAHOMA MOTORSPORTS COMPLEX look forward to presenting a great 37th Annual Grand National Championship Motocross at the new location.
