The 2022 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship season will be broadcasted live on MAVTV, and for the first-time MAVTV+ will stream the landmark 50th season. As the only television network in the U.S. dedicated exclusively to motorsports, MAVTV Motorsports Network has teamed with the motocross league to bring fans the world’s most prestigious off-road motorcycle racing series.
Cord cutters will be able to stream the 50th anniversary of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship on MAVTV via fuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, and YouTube TV. Tim Cotter, Event Director, MX Sports Pro Racing said: “The opportunity to enhance our partnership with Lucas Oil and unify our broadcast efforts with MAVTV Studios was something that will serve the best interests of our sport, our athletes, teams, sponsors, and most importantly, our fans.”
Founded in 1972, the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship has become the world’s premier outdoor motocross series. Lucas Oil became the sponsor of the series in 2009 and MAVTV has aired several live events from the series since 2014. This year will be the first time that MAVTV will air the entire 12-rounds of the series, and it will be the first time it will be available to stream on MAVTV+
“Our team at Lucas Oil is incredibly honored to be able to support the motocross industry for the past 13 years,” said Morgan Lucas, president of Lucas Oil. “We’ve seen some of the best-in-class athletes compete in this series, and we’re excited to expand our audience even further on our MAVTV channels.”
Cotter continued by highlighting the importance of the MAVTV+ streaming platform: “Now, with MAVTV as the series broadcast partner, we have an unprecedented opportunity to provide comprehensive live coverage of all 24 motos of both the 450 Class and 250 Class during our landmark 50th anniversary season. Beyond that, we can also provide an exclusive streaming platform in MAVTV Plus that provides on-demand access…”
The 50th season will begin and end in Pala, California over Memorial Day Weekend and Labor Day Weekend, respectively. The 12-round series will take place in 10 different states throughout the summer at legendary tracks: California’s Hangtown Motocross Classic, Pennsylvania’s High Point Raceway, Michigan’s RedBud MX, Washington’s Washougal MX Park, New York’s Unadilla MX, and more.
