ANN ARBOR, Mich., (March 21, 2005) — The National Promoters Group (NPG) announced today that it has signed High Profile Public Relations (HPPR) as its PR agency of record for the 2005 AMA National Motocross Championships, effective immediately.

“Pat (Schutte) has done an excellent job handling the Outdoor National PR efforts for the NPG over the past three years and we’re looking forward to another successful year with Pat and his new company, HPPR, said Ralph Huffman, NPG member and promoter of the Washougal Outdoor National. “A lot of what Pat works on goes unseen in our industry — working the local press angles to gain publicity for each race and, ideally, help continue to increase attendance figures.

“And the NPG was in agreement to utilize Pat’s efforts again this year.”

In addition to working hand-in-hand with the AMA on placing motocross-theme stories on the Nationals with local and national media, HPPR will handle the media credentials for each round of the series.
