Poison frontman and multiple reality show star Bret Michaels has written and recorded a song for the Monster Energy AMA Supercross season. It premiered as part of last weekend’s live season opener on SPEED.
“We are honored that Bret took his time to write and perform the song ‘Get Your Ride On’ for SPEED,” said Frank Wilson, SPEED Vice President of Production and Executive Producer. “Over the years, Bret has shown his passion for Supercross racing is genuine and we are sure this video will get our fans fired up for the Supercross season, as it did us.”
Michaels is a hardcore motorcycle enthusiast, who has a dirt track at his home. He will be the sponsor of the Rock Hard-Ride Hard Award, donating ten thousand dollars of his own money as an award to one deserving rider who just like Bret, battled through adversity either on or off the track. Michaels, a type 1 diabetic since age six, has also suffered a brain hemorrhage and most recently had heart surgery. Michaels will be on hand to present the winner with the award at the season finale at Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium on Saturday, May 5.
“As a true motorcycle enthusiast and Supercross fanatic, it’s an honor to have written and performed the song ‘Get Your Ride On’ for the first-ever opening sequence for the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series this season on SPEED,” said Michaels. “This season also brings the second annual Rock Hard-Ride Hard Award. Chad Reed won it last season and I am excited to kick the season off and to see who will win it this year.”
