It’s already been a strange year, and the surprises keep on rolling! Mike Alessi has confirmed that he’ll chase an arenacross crown next year, as he’s inked a deal with Babbits Kawasaki to compete in the full Kicker Arenacross series. Alessi announced the news via the following social-media statement.
“Excited to announce I have joined the @TeamBabbitts @MonsterEnergy @KawasakiUSA team for the 2021 AMA Kicker Arenacross season! Can’t wait for this new adventure and what the year has in store for us! Let’s go racing!”
Kicker Arenacross is now the number-one arenacross series, following the collapse of Amsoil Arenacross. The first round of the campaign is set to take place in Mississippi on January 08. The 12-round series will end on March 06 in Texas. Although Alessi was never considered an indoor specialist, he’s familiar with racing on tighter arenacross tracks after racing across Europe last year. Alessi had wins in Germany and Denmark.
