KTM North America invites all KTM riders and dealers to a free track day at Pala Raceway in Pala, Calif., on Friday, Dec. 11, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. A highlight of the event will be Mike Alessi and his new KTM motocross bike.

“Each year, the KTM west office holds an internal Christmas party exclusively for KTM staff,” the invitation reads. “This year, in spirit of the holiday season, KTM president Jon-Erik Burleson, along with the promoters of Pala Raceway and presenting sponsors Jagermeister, FMF, Powersport Grafx, Motorex, Thor and GE Money, have decided to open the invitation to all KTM riders for free.”

KTM dealers and presenting sponsors will be on hand to show their new product and give consumers gift ideas for their family and friends.

KTM riders Alessi, Tommy Searle, Ronnie Renner, Mike Metzger, Nate Kanney, Cory Buttrick, Mike Brown, Kurt Caselli, Russell Bobbitt, Kasey Martinez, Brenden Ritzman and Michael Sleeter will be present to turn laps before the start of their 2010 racing season. Renner and Metzger will put on an afternoon freestyle exhibition. In addition, Jagermeister will bring a live DJ to blast rockin’ music through the pits all day. Jagermeister/KTM Factory rider Alessi will be there with his new bike. To top it off, Santa Claus will be on hand to take pictures.

Lunch will be served between noon and 1 p.m. with all proceeds going to the local fire department Toys for Tots program. Raffle prizes from the presenting sponsors will be awarded throughout the day, including one to the person with the most holiday spirit. No RSVP is necessary.
