Britton Continues Nearly Decade-Long Tradition of Entertaining at M1 Events

DENVER, Colo. (February 15, 2012) - Jason Britton, the world's outright leader in motorcycle stunt riding, will be on hand to entertain fans when the Big Kahuna returns to Road Atlanta on the weekend of April 20 - 22, 2012, officials from M1 PowerSports announced today. Following emails from fans and the recent meetings with local motorcycle clubs requesting that Britton and Team No Limit be a part of the weekend's festivities, M1 PowerSports quickly worked out a plan to get the stunt riding superstar, and his many loyal fans, back to the track for the Big Kahuna Atlanta.

"The fans and the bike clubs asked for Jason Britton and we gladly delivered," said Cameron Gray, CEO of M1 PowerSports. "Jason revolutionized the sport of motorcycle stunt riding and has such a positive influence on the motorcycling community as a whole. We're proud to be partnered up with him again and can't wait to give fans everything they've been waiting for when M1 PowerSports, AMA Pro Road Racing and Team No Limit roll back in to Road Atlanta in April."

Britton's exceptional professional stunt riding career aside, the Screen Actors Guild-accredited performer has also had success in Hollywood, appearing as a stunt double in major motion pictures including 'Taking of the Pelham 1-2-3', 'Waist Deep', 'Bikers Boyz' and 'Torque' and stunt riding in commercials for mainstream clients such as Michael Jordan/Nike, Pepsi and Digiorno Pizza. His four-season run as the star of SPEEDTV's 'Super Bikes!' cemented him as a household name as the star traveled the country to cover the sport bike scene. When M1 and AMA Pro return to Braselton, Ga., the birthplace of the Big Kahuna, it will also mark a homecoming of sorts for Britton and Team No Limit, which first began putting on stunt shows for Big Kahuna fans at Road Atlanta in 2004.

"Atlanta has a special place in my heart," said Britton, who will be joined by Team No Limit rider Eric Hoenshell for the stunt shows at the 2012 Big Kahuna Atlanta. "When we first started filming 'Super Bikes!', Atlanta was one of the places that we got such a warm welcome from the bike clubs. I've run into the people from those bike clubs at other motorcycle events, and it's always felt like I have such a great connection with them. M1 has a great program and they've been doing great things for the industry. We're looking forward to putting on a great show and entertaining all of the people that M1 PowerSports brings out to see the event."

Fans attending the Big Kahuna Atlanta will have plenty of opportunities on each day of activity to witness the breathtaking stunt show that only Britton and Team No Limit can put on in a series of shows featured around the facility.
