The 2003 U.S. Open will be the Maxxis U.S. Open!

Maxxis International is excited to announce it will be the Title Sponsor of the 2003 U.S. Open! The two-day event, often referred to as the world’s richest motorcycle race, brings the world’s best riders to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas every October to compete for the largest prize in Supercross–$100,000. A total of $300,000 is divided between the champions of each class.

Maxxis has sponsored the U.S. Open from the very beginning, and has eagerly awaited an opportunity to increase its sponsorship to the highest level. As Maxxis grows, it is continually increasing its commitment to the industry through sponsorship of amateur and professional riders as well as event sponsorship worldwide.

“Increasing our level of sponsorship to Title Sponsorship of the U.S. Open marks a major step forward in our commitment, and we are pleased to continue to be a part of such a leading event,” said Michael McGunagle, marketing manager at Maxxis.

The contract period for Title Sponsorship is set to continue through 2004. For more information on the U.S. Open, please visit, or check in with for updates.
