Circuit of The Americas is encouraging sports and entertainment fans around the region to show their support for the City of Austin’s bid to land the summer edition of the ESPN X Games beginning in 2014 by joining the online campaign to bring the X Games to the heart of Texas.

"We are encouraging X Games fans everywhere to join the online campaign through the X Games Austin official website, Facebook and Twitter pages and by using their own social media channels to get the word out. Every post, comment, ‘Like’, and tweet will help show ESPN that Austin means business and is the perfect city to host the summer version of the X Games for the next three years."
Fans can show support by doing the following:
Additionally, local media outlets can help the cause by posting links to the X Games Austin official website, Facebook and Twitter pages on their respective websites and social media pages.
The City of Austin is one of four finalists, including Charlotte, N.C., Chicago and Detroit, in contention to host the summer version of the X Games. ESPN will conduct a site visit in Austin the week of June 3 and announce the new host city later this summer.
