"In electing to renew and extend the contract between MX Sports Pro Racing and the Daytona Motorsports Group, we have come to admire the very effective and growing professional motocross strength and impact which MX Sports Pro Racing has achieved with their key constituents, the athletes, teams, the National Promoters Group, Alli Sports and Lucas Oil Products."
Atlas added, "It was a logical decision for us to continue with enthusiasm the sanctioning of MX Sports Pro Racing and our important business association with them."
"We are very proud of all of the event organizers of the National Promoters Group for their continued hard work and dedication to the sport of motocross," said Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing.
