MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (May 2, 2012) –
Located in Rancho Dominguez, Calif., FMF is an industry leader in aftermarket exhausts for all types of motorcycles. The brand has had strong ties to motocross since its early days in the 1970s. Now, four decades later, FMF is taking the next step in its support of the sport.
FMF's support semi will be on hand at certain events to provide trackside support for all of its athletes and to showcase the leading exhaust systems in the world. In addition to exhausts, the new casual line of FMF/Joe Gibbs Racing apparel will be available for purchase, which JGRMX rider Davi Millsaps can be seen wearing between motos in the paddock.
"Having FMF back as a partner of the Nationals is crucial for the sport of motocross," said Mark Carter, General Manager of Motocross, Alli Sports. "Their support through social media and marketing will be a huge lift for Lucas Oil Motocross."
Perhaps the most exciting element of the new partnership with FMF is the introduction of a weekly contest that will give two fans at each round this season the one-of-a-kind opportunity to see the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship from a different perspective, gaining exclusive First Class access to the Nationals.
