E3 Spark Plugs recently announced it has teamed with the Geico AMA EnduroCross Series to create a new E3 Spark Plugs EnduroCross Pro Junior Championship to honor young, up-and coming stars of the sport.
“Working in cooperation with the AMA, we’ve developed a classification program for pro EnduroCross racers ages 16 to 21 that builds a series-within-a-series to help elevate the status of our younger GEICO EnduroCross Series racers,” said Source Interlink Media’s Mike Karsting. “These racers will all compete for the GEICO AMA EnduroCross Pro Junior Championship and the AMA’s No.1 plate that goes with it.”
This new championship will allow younger drivers, like 19-year-old Colton Haaker, the current E3 Spark Plugs’ Pro Junior EnduroCross points leader, and others to continue to gain fan attention as the series ramps up for the remainder of this racing season.
“As a somewhat young, up-and-coming company ourselves, E3 Spark Plugs was fired up with the opportunity to back the EnduroCross Pro Junior Championship,” said Steve Jonier, VP-Sales/Marketing for E3 Spark Plugs. “E3 Spark Plugs share with these younger racers a great deal of fight and determination – attributes that have served both E3 and all the competitors on the GEICO AMA EnduroCross series well.”
