Irvine, CA (April 10, 2012) – The GEICO Honda Supercross team has two riders in contention for the 2012 Lites Supercross Championships that will wrap up in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 5th. Justin Barcia has dominated the East Coast series while Eli Tomac has three wins in the West Coast series. Both riders along with Kevin Windham, Justin Bogle and Will Hahn will be attending the opening round of the GEICO AMA EnduroCross series that is taking place on Friday night before the Supercross finals in Las Vegas. They will be cheering on Geoff Aaron, Kevin Rookstool and Keith Wineland, their GEICO Honda counterparts in the EnduroCross series. And all of the GEICO Honda team, along with the other top EnduroCross racers will be signing autographs at the Orleans Arena when the doors open at 7:00 PM on Friday, May 4th.

Justin Barcia had this to say about attending the Las Vegas EnduroCross opener: "I'm excited to see another EnduroCross race," Barcia said. "I really want to try it one of these days. I almost did last year but the guys at Honda didn't want me to get hurt so they talked me out of it. I'm glad to see the GEICO series growing because it's something different and I know people will like it if they go check it out. It's crazy with all the obstacles they put out there, and that makes it a lot of fun to watch."

If you are planning a trip to see the Supercross finals in Las Vegas, then make sure that you come in a day early to catch the GEICO AMA EnduroCross championship opener and X Games Qualifier. If you have never watched one in person, you will be blown away by the obstacles and intense racing action.
