San Diego, CA (April 9, 2014) – The RCH Racing
Soaring Eagle has signed top privateer Weston Peick to race the Lucas
Oil Pro Motorcross Championship for 2014. Peick will continue to contest
the remainder of the Feld Motor Sports® 2014 Monster Energy AMA
Supercross, an FIM World Championship series as a privateer, before
joining the RCH Racing Soaring Eagle effort.
Answering the question posed in Racer X Magazine and all over the
Internet, “Why Not Weston?” RCH team principal Ricky Carmicheal says why
not, indeed. “I’m glad to have Weston a part of the team.” Peick earned
seven amateur titles without support from factories and raced a
privateer since turning pro in 2009… until now. “We are excited to give
him the opportunity and look forward to working with him to help him
achieve his goals,” claims Carmichael.
“He has a great work ethic that will mesh well with our team
personnel to get the best result possible,” adds Carmichael. “It should
be a lot of fun!”
Despite being a self-professed “goon” at Supercross early in his
career, the former high school football player has shown marked
improvement in the stadiums this season, including Top 5 at Anaheim 3
and the San Diego rounds. However he is really looking forward to
returning to the outdoor nationals. “This is a great opportunity to be
surrounded by one of the best riders of all time and one of the best
factory teams to help me get to the next level,” said an elated Peick.
Loyalty is important to Peick and his father, and they requested to
finish the Supercross season as a privateer in order to honor their
sponsor commitments. This is a request that RCH Racing Soaring Eagle
certainly respects and is one of the reasons why Peick was offered the
opportunity. “I want to Thank all my current sponsors for their
outstanding support for the Supercross series… without them, this
opportunity wouldn’t be possible,” says Weston.
“We are so happy to have the opportunity for Weston to work with RCH
Racing,” says his father Louie who has been working on Weston’s bikes
throughout his career. “Thanks to all our sponsors that helped us get to
Look for Weston Peick to make his debut on the RCH Racing Soaring
Eagle Suzuki RM-Z450 at Glen Helen on May 24th when the 2014 Lucas Oil
Pro Motocross Championship kicks off.
