Seven-time Supercross champion, Jeremy McGrath also has a sucessful weekend at the Southern California stop of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series.  The race began with a rough start as he had to end his race early on Saturday due to issues with his oil pump belt.  But McGrath finished strong on Sunday after the Stronghold Motorsports crew made some quick fixes, placing The Water Warden/Loctite #2 Pro 2 up to 4rd place.

“We had an up and down weekend! Saturday was a bummer but Sunday’s race was just awesome! I went out with a win or crash attitude and came from the back to one spot off the podium! I was very happy with Sunday’s performance!” said McGrath.

After the great Mayweather fight in Las Vegas, client Bikini Brigade LA headed back home. The ladies worked the fight as ring girls, modeled and promoted products at the Supercross finals, and got to attend hot new club Hakkasan where Calvin Harris and Tiesto performed. They even ran in to Neil Patrick Harris!

At the supercross finals, client Jeremy McGrath was able to reveal the winner of his $20,000 scholarship. It was Alex Northcutt, who will use the money to further his education and pursue his dreams of working within the motorcycle/ motocross industry. Congrats, Alex!

The LAPR social media and events team treated themselves to a night out to celebrate the anniversary of the London Hotel in WeHo. It was a great event with some old friends and some new opportunities.

Lynch Archer then celebrated Mother’s Day! A great reminder to thank all our clients, clients’ wives, and our own moms for always being there for support.

LAPR was delighted to be invited back to ESPN’s Sports Nation with client Matt Barnes. He was even in-studio for their surprise Taco Tuesday skit, where Matt got to chow down on a taco during the commercial break.

Though Matt suffered a great loss already in this playoff season, he was able to make an impressive 30 points in his last game. He has spent the last few weeks opening up to the media about his future as an NBA player and the future of the LA Clippers team. He will be a free agent this summer, but has made it known that he and his family love LA. Being a UCLA grad, Barnes has strong roots in the area. For a taste of his media talks, check out one interview with ESPN here: http://espn.go.com/espnradio/play?id=9275303

The WME Tennis Classic is finally just around the corner! The annual event lets us catch up with old friends from the Bogart Pediatric Cancer Research Center.

Other than TV pitching in NYC and Hollywood events in LA, the team has their sights set on plenty more to keep them busy in the next few weeks including Cannes Film Festival, Billboard Music Awards, ESPYs, the Fast and the Furious premiere, The Hangover premiere, and much more!
