FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Veterans Eligible for Free Admission in 2018
ATVMX Partners with the Veterans Tickets Foundation
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (April 26, 2018) – MX Sports Pro Racing and the ATV Promoter’s Group (ATVPG) recognize the sacrifices made by our service men and women and are pleased to announce a continued partnership with the Veteran Tickets Foundation for the 3rd year in 2018. Active, retired military, veterans and families of those KIA can watch the on-track excitement of the world’s premier ATV motocross series at no cost.
The ATV Motocross National Championship (ATVMX), presented by CST Tires, an AMA National Championship has donated 30 Saturday General Admission tickets to the Vet Tix foundation for 9 rounds of the championship, with the exception of the Daytona ATV Supercross. As we head into round four of the 2018 season, VetTix has already given out 60 tickets to veterans. Tickets will be available to all military veterans two weeks prior to each event through VetTix.org.
“Affordability still remains the largest factor in Veterans attending events,” said Mike Focareto, CEO of Veteran Tickets Foundation. “Together we magnify our impact to those men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country and give them the opportunity to enjoy events with their families and reduce their stress.”
Major sports franchises from Lucas Oil Pro Motocross, Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, National Football League, and National Hockey League have also partnered with Vet Tix, as have touring organizations like World Wrestling Entertainment and Professional Bull Riders.
Vet Tix, based in Phoenix, is a national nonprofit organization that provides free tickets to veterans and active-duty members and their families, in addition to families of those KIA. Founder and CEO Michael Focareto, a U.S. Navy veteran, developed the concept of Vet Tix in 2008 and since then the organization has given away more than four million tickets to veterans nationwide.
All active and retired military veterans can create an account on VetTix.org to receive emails and reminders about when ATVMX tickets become available. More information about Vet Tix can be found at VetTix.org.

About Veteran Tickets Foundation:
Veteran Tickets Foundation is a national 501 (c) 3 non-profit foundation supporting our military community. Vet Tix provides free event tickets to currently serving military, veterans and family members of KIA to sporting events, concerts, performing arts and family activities.
