|BUCHANAN, Mich. (Aug. 31, 2020) – Officials with RedBud MX are pleased to announce that the Road 2 Recovery Foundation will present Round Two of the Circle K National at RedBud scheduled for Labor Day, Sept. 7. |
The Circle K National at RedBud, presented by Road 2 Recovery, marks the first time the organization has been named as a major sponsor for America’s Motocross Race. The industry standard in providing financial and much more assistance to professional motocross racers who have sustained a debilitating injury, Road 2 Recovery has a longstanding relationship with RedBud, which was happy to extend the prestigious presenting title to what they strongly feel is such a worthy organization.
“Road 2 Recovery is a godsend to racers and their families in this industry,” said RedBud’s Amy Ritchie. “They don’t just send racers a check, they do so much more, and not just for the big name racers we all know. I’ve seen how they’ve helped some of our local pros, for example. Help can mean wading through insurance issues, getting much needed equipment and rehab, renovating homes to accommodate a wheelchair. The list goes on. They have an amazing team of caring people.
“We welcome Road 2 Recovery as the presenting sponsor for the Circle K, RedBud national on Labor Day! We want to shine a light on the amazing things they do.”
Lori Armistead, Chairperson of the Board and Directors and head of Marketing and Public Relations for Road 2 Recovery, said this: “We can’t thank the Ritchies and the whole RedBud team enough for offering us the presenting sponsorship opportunity for a national motocross event. RedBud is truly America’s Motocross Track and everyone at Road 2 Recovery can’t say enough about how pleased we are to be such a big part of the weekend, presenting the Labor Day event.”
RedBud and R2R have teamed up to create a unique, combined-logo neck gaiter to commemorate the event and raise money for R2R. It’s a perfect addition to any fall or winter wardrobe, and doubles as an easy-to-wear, moto-inspired mask. A few will debut on RedBud’s online store today (link on redbudmx.com), but the majority will be reserved for racers and their crews in attendance at RedBud this weekend. You’ll find them at the RedBud store on vendor row.

More on RedBud MX:
Rising up amongst the fertile rolling hills of picturesque southwestern Michigan, RedBud stands as a cornerstone in the storied history of motocross in the United States. Hosting for 47 years what’s consistently become the highest-attended motocross race in the USA, and always on the country’s birthday (4th of July) weekend, RedBud proudly carries the flag throughout the MX industry as America’s Motocross Track. High on pro racers’ lists of favorite tracks, from both coasts in the United States to Europe and points all over the globe, RedBud’s dirt – dark/organic loam, a truly rich soil suitable for growing grapes on either side of the expansive RedBud property – is the stuff of legend. This, coupled with beach-quality sand mined from the property and incorporated into key areas of the undulating track, and RedBud’s racing surface was seemingly ordained by the motocross gods to host the prestigious 2018 Motocross of Nations.
