Wonder Warthog Racing—Dallas: SX Series Goes Hog Wild in Texas!

Team Warthog, the non-profit privateer support program being managed by Wonder Warthog Racing, continued to deliver the goods to the privateers down in Dallas, Texas.

A total of 38 registered privateer riders qualified for the evening program at round fourteen of the THQ AMA Supercross Series, held at Texas Stadium in front of 41,276 fans, with five of them making the show in both the 125cc and 250cc classes.

WWR sent checks totaling $4,825 to registered and deserving privateers for this event bringing the season-to-date total to an impressive $47,905.

Jesse Casillas is this week¿s Privateer of the Week.  Jesse made the night show in both classes, qualified for the 125cc main in his heat, and finished a season high thirteenth in the main.  Hear Jesse this week on the Wonder Warthog privateer segments of Pitpassradio.com and DMXSradio.com radio shows to find out if the cape gave him SX superpowers.  We¿ll profile him on Tuesday at www.wonderwarthogracing.com/JesseCasillas.htm.

The steamroller of support to Team Warthog continued, with Kevin Windham and Ivan Tedesco committing assistance to the program.  The number of factory riders helping to make Team Warthog successful just keeps growing!!  Thanks Kevin and Ivan for supporting the privateers!!

Team Warthog was also featured on the ESPN2 Dallas broadcasts this past weekend.  There were segments on both the 125 and 250 shows which included interviews with James Stewart and past Privateer of the Week Adam Smith.  Special Thanks to Jamie Little for the great work on the pieces!!  You can see the rebroadcasts of the shows on ESPN2 on 4/23/04 at 1:00am ET.  Set your VCRs and TiVos NOW!!

WWR expresses its gratitude to its charter primary sponsors, Engine Ice Hi-Performance Coolant (www.engineice.cc), Allsport Dynamics (www.allsportdynamics.com), OGIO (www.ogio.com), Clear Channel Entertainment (www.sxgp.com) and the many enthusiast level contributors who’ve stepped up to support our efforts.

Added props out to DeCal Works (www.decalmx.com) for providing Team Warthog stickers for the privateers.  Everybody wants those stickers!!

The staff of WWR is extremely grateful to their friends at both Clear Channel Entertainment and AMA Pro Racing for their acceptance and help in integrating WWR’s ideas with their existing package of programs designed to benefit the privateer.

Wonder Warthog Racing (WWR) is a unique company formed to better the sport of motocross.   WWR is comprised of two distinct entities: Team Warthog, created to conceptualize, fund, and execute meaningful programs aimed directly at the privateers; and Wonder Warthog Apparel, which will sell casual clothes to the mass market based on the Wonder Warthog comic book character, with a portion of the revenues earmarked for Team Warthog funding.
