SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (September 10, 2015) – In the spirit of horse racing, “the sport of kings,” and the “press your luck” flair of Las Vegas, Glen Helen Raceway and “Sin City’s” South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa have partnered to bring a unique, one-of-a-kind contest to the Monster Energy MXGP of USA, presented by Chaparral (USGP). The “South Point Double Trifecta” puts $10,000 up for grabs for any fans that can accurately predict the overall podium finishers in both the MXGP class and MX2 class at the USGP, the final round of the 2015 FIM Motocross World Championship (MXGP), on Sunday, September 20.
A common form of wagering in horse racing, a trifecta means to accurately predict the first three finishers of a race, in order. With two classes of competition at the USGP, Glen Helen and South Point have upped the ante with a double trifecta. As if that task alone wasn’t hard enough, a potential winner must accurately predict the overall podium finishers for the day, factoring in scoring for a pair of motos in each class. With $10,000 on the line, the challenge had to be exceptional.“This is a contest unlike anything we’ve ever seen before in the sport of motocross and we’re excited to see if one of the fans in attendance is able to correctly predict the top three in the MXGP and MX2 classes despite all of the variables that inevitably come to fruition on race day,” said Bud Feldkamp, owner of Glen Helen Raceway. “This is a truly difficult test of any fan’s racing knowledge and surely luck will have to play a factor. If anyone is able to emerge with a winning ticket, they will have certainly earned the grand prize South Point has provided.”
Entry into the South Point Double Trifecta is FREE, but is limited to the first 5,000 paid admissions through the gate on race day, Sunday, September 20. Entries must be submitted at the Official Glen Helen T-Shirt Booth next to the Glen Helen Museum prior to the start of the first moto at 12 noon PT. Any winning ticket must be presented for verification at the Glen Helen Museum within 45 minutes of the conclusion of the day’s final moto. In the event of multiple winners, $10,000 will be distributed equally between winning parties. Prize money will be mailed directly to the winners following verification.
