John "Junkyard Dog" Dowd To Race BooKoo U.S. Open Of Arenacross

1/26/2007

 

 

1998 WEST SUPERCROSS CHAMPION LOOKS FORWARD TO

THE BOOKOO U.S. OPEN OF ARENACROSS AT THE MOHEGAN SUN ON FEBRUARY 9-11, 2007



John Dowd is "just" 41-years old and getting ready to take on the young guns of arenacross in the upcoming BooKoo U.S. Open of Arenacross event at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT coming February 9-11. Considering his age, it should be the farthest thing from his mind.


Pretty much retired from racing, Dowd continues to be still deeply involved in this sport by conducting motocross schools around New England and the like. Coming out of retirement for the BooKoo U.S. Open Of Arenacross his Coastline Motorsports Suzuki machine will be sponsored by Mototown, the indoor Motocross track, in Windsor, CT. "I'm planning on running in both Pro classes on that Friday and Saturday night (Feb. 9 and 10) of that weekend," revealed Dowd.


Dowds most recent national title came on November 18, 2006 at the Endurocross Championships held at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. This event was held indoors on a made-made track with water crossing, rocks, logs and dirt to bring an outdoor enduro indoors for a fan friendly atmosphere. With Dowds wide range of talent, he beat the 2005 Endurocross Champion, David Knight.

The U.S. Open of Arenacross will also be the final race in the coast-to-coast BooKoo Arenacross Championship Series which has over 3 million dollars in purse, point fund and posted contingency for the 10-city tour. The event at the Mohegan Sun Arena will feature a $110,000.00 purse with $50,000.00 going to the U.S. Open Champion making this the richest arenacross in history.
