MX Sports Pro Racing and the National Promoter’s Group (NPG) are proud to announce the continuation of an initiative with the Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix) to provide tickets for the second year in a row to currently serving veterans, honorably discharged veterans and next of kin of those killed in action to attend any round of the 2017 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, at no cost.
For 2017, Lucas Oil Pro Motocross has donated 50 General Admission tickets for each of the 12 rounds of the Nationals to the Vet Tix foundation. Tickets will be available to all military veterans two weeks prior to each event through Vet Tix.
“The donation of free tickets has dramatically widened the range of ways that veterans can relax, enjoy themselves, share smiles with their families and loved ones, and for some, be re-integrated into civilian life," said CEO and Founder of Vet Tix Michael Focareto.
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 was one of the first prominent motorsports properties in the country to offer this one-of-a-kind service to all veterans of the armed services and is proud to enter its fourth year of partnership with the nonprofit organization.
Vet Tix, based in Phoenix, is a national nonprofit organization that provides free tickets to currently serving, honorably discharged veterans and their families and families of those KIA. The concept of Vet Tix was developed in 2008 by U.S. Navy veteran Michael Focareto. Since then, the organization has given away more almost 1.2 million tickets to veterans nationwide.
All currently serving, honorable discharged veterans and families of those KIA can create an account on VetTix.org to receive emails and reminders about when Lucas Oil Pro Motocross tickets become available. More information about Vet Tix can be found at www.VetTix.org.
