Lucas Oil to Sponsor Team USA at the 2018 FIM World Junior Motocross Championship
Horsham, Australia (August 20, 2018) – Lucas Oil Products lends its support to the 2018 U.S. Junior Motocross Team, which consists of six America’s top amateur motocross competitors in the nation, in Horsham, Australia August 24-26. The event marks the first time the United States has participated in the FIM World Junior Motocross Championship since 2014.
Team USA riders Aiden Tijero, Max Miller, Ryder DiFrancesco, and Caden Braswell will represent the United States in the Junior Motocross World Championship division. Logan Best and Enzo Temmerman will compete in the Junior Motocross World Cup division.
Led by AMA Motocross Manager Ricky Rickords, Team USA is expected to be a top contender for the FIM Junior Motocross World Cup. “Having the support of Lucas Oil, an American-made product that is sold world-wide, gives our team global recognition as they race on foreign soil,” says Rickords.
Jason Witt of Lucas Oil’s amateur support program, the Lucas Legion, says, “We couldn’t think of a better way to support our top amateurs than to help get them to Australia to represent our country on the world’s stage.”
