Cobra Moto Announces New National Development Team

Courtesy of Cobra Moto


HILLSDALE, Mich., (July 23, 2014) – When you’re working to pick the best kids on dirt bikes you have to remember the late bloomers. Guys like Jeremy McGrath and John Dowd, for instance, didn’t take motocross seriously until their teens. And for Cobra Moto, which starts working with kids as young as four, there’s been a lot of talented kids racing the American-made minicycles over the years that have, for one reason or another, gone unnoticed.
With that in mind Lakehill Trackside Racing’s Doug Cochran approached Cobra Moto President Sean Hilbert this past January with a plan – a plan geared towards developing a number of the not-quite-there-yet young racers into possible talent for Cobra’s prestigious National team.
Dubbed the Cobra Moto National Development Team, Cochran’s Lakehill Trackside Racing program has recruited the seven best up-and-coming minicycles racers in the nation and given them support at the national level at races such as Mill Creek (Ala.), Oak Hill (Texas) and Freestone (Texas).
“We often bypass kids who, at the time, weren’t ready for national competition,” said Cochran. “So we basically came up with the Cobra Moto National Development Team along the lines of a minor league baseball program.”
Working with engine and suspension specialist Josh Rogers, who owns the Houston-based EBR Performance, Cochran and his wife, Amy, have dedicated their time and much of their business resources this year to Cobra Moto’s National Development Team. Utilizing Cobra Moto’s dealer support network, Cochran was able to sign seven kids (below) – all of whom have qualified for the 2014 Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn’s ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.
Edgar Lewis              Virden, IL                   65cc 7-9
Chris Sweeney           Jackson, NJ                 65cc 7-9
Collin Allen                Haslet, TX                   50cc 7-8
Brock Walker            Cleburne, TX              50cc 7-8
Cole Kish                   Newport, MI               50cc 7-8
Kyler Rhom               Charlotte, NC             50cc 4-6
Hayden Cline             Converse, TX              50cc 4-6
“I can’t begin to explain what a positive impact Doug and his team at Lakehill Trackside Racing have had on the Cobra Moto program this year,” said Hilbert. “Much like Cobra Moto’s mantra, the Cochrans have dedicated their business to support the Cobra Moto family, assisting kids who will no doubt be the front-runners for the Cobra Moto National Team positions in the coming years.”Cochran brings with him a wealth of experience at Loretta’s. His son, Casey, is a Cobra Moto National Team racer and the defending champion in the 4-6 50cc class. Casey will be on one of the 29 Cobras in the 7-8 class (of 42 bikes total) at Loretta’s, nine of which have Lakehill Trackside Racing support!
Up next for Cobra: 2014 Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn’s ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., July 27-Augs. 2.

Carlsbad, CA - After four years as the official race tire of Chad Reed and TwoTwo Motorsports, the team and Dunlop have agreed to mutually end their partnership to allow TwoTwo to expand their relationship with their title sponsor. 

“I am very thankful for the support Dunlop has shown TwoTwo Motorsports and myself since 2010,” said Reed. “Over the past four years, I have had the privilege to watch Dunlop develop cutting-edge products for my team and the industry. As an independent team owner I am forced to make hard decisions. I would sincerely like to extend my gratitude to the entire Dunlop team and wish them nothing but success moving forward. We are excited for the future of TwoTwo Motorsports and the impact we continue to make on the industry.” 

“Dunlop always encourages the expansion of our sport, especially in the case of a sponsor from outside the motorcycle industry who has the ability to put motorcycle racing in front of a larger audience,” said Mike Buckley, senior vice president of sales, marketing and R&D. “Chad is a great competitor, and we wish him well for the 2014 season.”

Bell Helmets named Official Helmet for 2014 Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn's

Courtesy of MX Sports

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (July 18, 2014) - MX Sports announced today that Bell Helmets, an industry leader in innovative head protection, is the official helmet of the 2014 Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship presented by AMSOIL. Bell will be on-site throughout the July 27 - Aug. 2 National Championship in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., showcasing and demonstrating their newly developed custom-fit program with the Bell Moto-9 helmet, in addition to sponsoring the Bell Helmet Holeshot Award at the 2014 National Championship.

 
Bell's custom-fitting demonstrations allow riders to experience the company's break-through head scanning system, which is a first of its kind for the industry. Each Bell Moto-9 helmet is customized to the unique shape and dimensions of the rider's head and since the internal shape of the helmet is a direct offset of the rider's head; there are no uncomfortable pressure points or hot spots.

In addition to the custom-fit head scanning demonstrations, Bell is providing nearly $11,000 in holeshot awards to amateur racers throughout the week. The Bell Helmet Holeshot Award offers up a $100 gift certificate to BellHelmets.com to each rider who gets the holeshot in 108 gate drops taking place at the National Championship.
 
"We love the excitement and competition that surrounds Loretta Lynn's," said Chris Sackett, Vice President Bell Helmets. "We're thrilled to have the opportunity to meet and talk with the sport's future stars about the importance of head protection."  

Bell will have the custom-fit Sprinter Van set up in Sponsor Village all week long, inviting racers and their families to stop by and demo its innovative head scanning system and experience the comfort of the Moto-9 Carbon helmet first hand.

"Bell Helmets joined the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn's last year and we're very pleased that they have stepped up to be an even bigger part of the National in 2014 and beyond," said MX Sports Director, Tim Cotter. "The innovative technology that Bell brings to the table is invaluable and we're looking forward to sharing that cutting-edge knowledge with the word's top amateur motocross racers."
 
Following their first-ever custom-fit program at the 2013 World SuperBike Championship at Laguna Seca, Bell has since taken their custom-fit process on tour to events all across the country, including the Austin and Indy MotoGP events, as well as the AIM Expo, IMS Shows and more.

The 2014 Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship presented by AMSOIL will take place July 27 - Aug. 2 at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.

Budd's Creek Privateer Payout

Courtesy of SMDR

The 2014 Budds Creek Motocross Pro National marks the tenth consecutive year that the Southern Maryland Dirt Riders Club has awarded its Privateer Award to the struggling working class heroes of our sport.
In 2006, the award was renamed in honor of Kevin Crine, a local Southern Maryland privateer who won the hearts of many during his time on and off the track. Kevin lost his life in a tragic car accident, but his spirit lives on in our motocross community as we recognize top performing privateers each year with the Kevin Crine Memorial Privateer Award.
This year the SMDR club will award one 250 Class racer and one 450 Class racer $1,000 each presented on stage by John Crine (Kevin’s father). The club recognizes and wishes to support the concept of the struggling privateer trying to make a living while following the dream of factory stardom.
Past recipients of the award include Gavin Gracyk, Kyle Mace, Ben Ritter, Corey Green, Jacob Marsack, and Sean Borkenhagen just to name a few. The money was generously donated by SMDR members at our monthly club meetings and riding functions. We want to give true privateers a little extra incentive to do well at the 2014 Budds Creek Motocross Pro National on July 12.
