2009 Extreme Motorsports Expo

Losi teamed up with Dirt Alliance to attend the Extreme Motorsports Expo in Costa Mesa, CA. The three day event drew large amounts of exhibitors and spectators. Spectators visiting the Losi booth were able to view and demo some of our most popular products. Some attendees were even lucky enough to leave with a new Losi vehicle, such as a Mini-Desert Truck or a Micro-Desert Truck.

Losi was also able to raise several hundred dollars for the Jeremy Lusk Foundation by asking for $2.00 donations in exchange for the opportunity to demo our Mini-Rock Crawlers on the indoor rock course. The Jeremy Lusk Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving driver safety in the sport of freestyle motocross, at both professional and recreational levels.

Thanks to everyone that contributed to making this event a great success.
