Lake Forest, CA May 22, 2013: The Asterisk Mobile Medical Center would like to thank American Honda for the use of a 2013 Honda PCX 150 Scooter during the 2013 Lucas Oil Motocross Championship Series. This is the second year that Honda has offered our crew trackside and street ready mobility as our rig travels around the country.
“The Asterisk Mobile Medical Center team performs a huge service for our sport throughout the Supercross and Motocross seasons,” said Bill Savino, Powersports Press Manager for American Honda. “The Asterisk Mobile Medical Center has been a great help to our Honda riders and all riders in the paddock, and it’s greatly appreciated. They truly deserve our help and support in return.”
“Our donation of the Honda PCX 150 scooter gives assistance to the Asterisk Mobile Medical Center staff in a very useful way. They will be taking the PCX with them from track to track, and it gives them additional flexibility for use in local transportation chores once the medical center is set up in place at the track. And because the PCX 150 offers such great fuel economy—it can go more than 100 miles on a gallon of gas—it’s a very practical option for their transportation needs as well. If you are at one of the Lucas Oil Motocross events, stop by and take a look at our new PCX 150 Scooter on display next to the Medical Center.”

ONE Industries has been known for pushing the envelope and seeking advancement in the products built for our sport. When it comes to advancement, few areas are as important as protecting our brains from rotation violence. This is what is known to be the main cause of concussion and severe Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). This Fall, ONE Industries will be launching their already proven Gamma helmet with a new and exciting safety feature to answer the call for reduced rotational violence. Stay tuned for more information.
“First and foremost, I want to thank Doc Bodnar for his interest in working with us and his belief in our product. I am honored and proud to be aligned with such an important program and one that has done so much for our sport. We look forward to supporting the AMMC this 2013 season.” – ONE Industries Marketing Director: Greg Lenac.
