Next Tuesday, June 26 at 7:30 p.m., select fans will have the chance to team up with, and battle against, some of the biggest names in motorcycle racing. The team-based race format will also feature a local mover-and-shaker from the media community and a pint-sized celebrity from the Roots of Music, the critically-acclaimed music education program for middle-school students in New Orleans that was recently tapped to play in the 2013 Rose Bowl parade.
"You never really know someone until you race them," said Cameron Gray, CEO of M1 PowerSports. "And this will give us all a great opportunity to truly get to know one another, the fans, the AMA Pro riders, the local media members and the extremely talented youngsters that make up the Roots of Music. Some of the most fun we've ever had has been on the kart track and I can't wait to get this tradition started up in New Orleans."
