The new "MotoStars: Celebrities + Motorcycles exhibit at the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum opens June 28, spotlighting over 100 of the country's most passionate celebrity moto enthusiasts, their motorcycles and personal memorabilia.
Among them is Jimmie Johnson, the two-time reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion, whose Jimmie Johnson Foundation (JJF) has green flagged the inclusion of a special 2008 Star Motorcycles Warrior, customized by 2Xtreem Motorcycle TV and sponsored by Sunoco. The motorcycle, which was built as a tribute to the Jimmie Johnson Foundation, will be showcased in the exhibit until Aug. 15.
Following its pit stop at the Museum, the motorcycle will be auctioned off at the Jimmie Johnson Foundation Annual Golf Tournament in San Diego Aug. 26. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the San Diego Habitat for Humanity.
Two and four-wheeled devotees can tune in to 2Xtreem Motorcycle TV during May to watch the show's crew build the custom JJF tribute motorcycle. Johnson even stops by 2Xtreem to take the machine for a test ride. Enthusiasts should also plan a visit to the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum in Pickerington, Ohio, for a chance to see the JJF tribute motorcycle in person, as well as motorcycles and memorabilia from other well-known athletes, musician, actors, artists, builders and industry leaders. The ribbon-cutting for "MotoStars: Celebrities + Motorcycles" will be June 28.
