Suzuki Big Kahuna Nationals Contest Announced!

One Lucky Fan Can Win the Ultimate Superbike Experience at the Suzuki Big Kahuna Nationals

Alton, Va. - M1 Entertainment, which is promoting the Suzuki Big Kahuna Nationals featuring the AMA Superbike Championship at VIRginia International Raceway over the weekend of August 18-20, has put together the most amazing promotion ever seen at a Superbike race.

The M1 Experience is a package of amenities and access that is unprecedented in the history of the sport. In order to be eligible, a fan must purchase two three-day passes for the Suzuki Big Kahuna Nationals. Fans will get one chance for each two three-day passes purchased during the month of July, so if one person buys 10 three-day passes, they get five chances to win. Tickets must be purchased by July 31, 2006.

The lucky winner and their guest will receive the following: two event programs; two official Big Kahuna t-shirts; two sets of Speed Channel Gear; two trackside suite passes; two drink passes each; two laps of the track (if they ride their own bikes); one pace car ride for two; one hotel room at the track for Friday and Saturday night; present trophies on the podium for Saturday races; two Pit Crew Weekend Warrior Passes for the Jordan Suzuki Team; one helmet autographed by all the top racers at the Big Kahuna Nationals; one seat in the Suzuki Big Kahuna Nationals Superstars Kart Enduro Challenge on Thursday; and one lap on the Road Racing World two-seater superbike with Chris Ulrich on Thursday.

"This is the ultimate," said M1 president Cameron Gray. "There has never been a promotion like this, and one lucky fan and their guest are going to have the weekend of a lifetime at the Suzuki Big Kahuna Nationals. There is no way to put a value on this promotion, because a lot of the package isn't available at any price! If you tried to dream up the absolutely best possible weekend at a Superbike race, this would be it. Somebody is going to win this incredible package, and we wish everyone good luck!"

The Suzuki Big Kahuna Nationals offers a variety of ticket packages designed to fit every budget, including standard general-admissions tickets, Big Kahuna Super Tickets, Big Dog Hospitality Passes, Little Dog Hospitality Passes, Pit Walk Passes, car parking passes and camping passes.

All current military personnel will receive a 30-percent discount and free parking with a copy of a current military ID (advance) or by presenting their ID card at the gate. Similarly, college students will be eligible for a 15-percent discount with a copy of a current college ID (advance) or by presenting their ID card at the gate. Groups of 20 or more will also be eligible for a 15-percent discount, providing the order is paid for with one credit card. Discounts do not apply to Trackside VIP Suite and Big Kahuna Super Tickets, or to Big Dog Hospitality Passes or Pit Walk Passes.
