Tickets Available Through Nonprofit Veteran Tickets Foundation
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (May 9, 2013) – Thanks to an initiative with the
Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix), active and retired military
veterans will once again have the opportunity to attend any round of the
2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro
Racing, at no cost.
The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross event promoters have donated 50 General
Admission tickets for each of the 12 rounds of the Nationals to Vet Tix,
which will be available to all military veterans through VetTix.org.
“We are thrilled that for the second year in a row veterans will be
able to experience the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship,” said CEO
and Founder of Vet Tix Michael Focareto. “We’re also incredibly grateful
that organizations like this are thinking of Vet Tix first when it
comes to philanthropic opportunities.”
Major sports franchises from Major League Baseball, the National
Basketball Association, National Football League, and National Hockey
League have also partnered with Vet Tix, as have World Wrestling
Entertainment and Professional Bull Riders. Lucas Oil Pro Motocross is
one of the first prominent motorsports in the country to offer this
one-of-a-kind service to all veterans of the armed services.
Vet Tix is a national nonprofit organization based in Phoenix that
provides free tickets to veterans and active-duty members of the
military and their families. The concept of Vet Tix was developed in
2008 by U.S. Navy veteran Michael Focareto. Since then, the organization
has given away more than 300,000 tickets to veterans nationwide. More
information about Vet Tix can be found at VetTix.org.
The 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship kicks off next
Saturday, May 18, with the Red Bull Hangtown Motocross Classic in
Sacramento, Calif. The world’s best riders will compete over the course
of 12 rounds on the most renowned motocross tracks in the country.
