Sponsor Big Kahuna Nationals Triple Crown Series

March 15, 2012 is revving up its event sponsorship by announcing its 2012 trophy sponsorship of the Big Kahuna Nationals Triple Crown series.

The Big Kahuna is a three event series inside the AMA Pro Road Racing championship. Each of the three events will crown a “Big Kahuna” in every road racing class, and each Big Kahuna will be presented with a sponsored full-sized trophy surfboard, designed by Roland Sands in conjunction with and made by Hurley Surfboards. This year’s Big Kahuna Nationals will take place at Road Atlanta on April 20th-22nd, Homestead-Miami Speedway on September 21st-23rd, and in New Orleans at the NOLA Motorsports Park on October 5th-7th. 

“I’m just excited that we can keep this program going,” said Cameron Gray, CEO of M1 PowerSports. “Especially with stepping in, as well as the partnership with Roland Sands Designs and Hurley Surfboards, I don’t think you could ask for three better companies to partner with M1 PowerSports on these surfboards. I think it’s going to be a great thing, especially now that we can offer a surfboard trophy to each class, it gives everybody something to shoot for and gives it that classic Big Kahuna touch.” 

The sponsored Roland Sands Designs Big Kahuna trophies are full-sized, surf-ready surfboards with motorcycle-themed graphics. The Big Kahuna Triple Crown has won “best trophy” awards in the past, and this year’s creation by Roland Sands, a former AMA Pro Road Racing Champion, will undoubtedly become a strong contender. 

“Surfing and road racing have some unique similarities most people would not recognize, so to bring the two sports together with these amazing Big Kahuna trophies is close to my heart,” said Roland Sands. “The teams at M1 PowerSports and have been great to work with and RSD has been fortunate enough to be in the middle of getting this idea off the ground for them. The boards themselves are not only beautiful but are really good, shredable boards. It’s almost enough to make me pull the leathers out to try and win one.” 

The first of the three Big Kahuna Nationals events takes place at Road Atlanta, about 35 miles north of Atlanta, Georgia on the weekend of April 20th-22nd, 2012.
