Maloofs Drop $40k On King of the Road Comp

The owners of the Maloof Money Cup have dropped US$40,000 into Thrashers 2010 ‘King of the Road’ contest. The money will go to the winning team in the comp which kicks off in about 14 hours time. This has ignited an interesting debate over at Skatedaily about the merits of big business being involved in skateboarding – for those that don’t know, the Maloof’s also own The Palms casino in Las Vegas (see the rad pool above) and the Sacramento Kings. Read the full story and the comments over here.
