PAYSON, UT (October 7, 2016) – Rocky Mountain ATV/MC and Butler Brothers MX LLC are pleased to announce a multi-year partnership introducing the new Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS Team. Rocky Mountain ATV/MC will be the title sponsor for the team and Forrest Butler of BBMX will be the team owner. Davi Millsaps, Blake Baggett and Benny Bloss have signed on as riders for 2017, and will be riding 2017 Factory KTM 450SX-F and 250SX-F dirt bikes throughout the year.
Orlando native Davi Millsaps (#18) has been racing professionally since 2004, earning two titles in his career and five top-five overall finishes. His latest achievement came this past summer as he took the 2016 Rockstar Energy Drink Nationals MX1 Championship. He also won the 2014 Monster Energy Cup. He will be racing in the 450SX and MX classes for the 2017 season. Blake Baggett (#4) also joins the team with a 250MX national title under his belt, and six top-five overall finishes. Professionally racing since 2009, Baggett will be starting his third year racing in the 450 class, and will race both 450 SX and MX for the 2017 season. 2016 AMA National Outdoor Motocross Rookie of the Year sensation Benny Bloss (#34), who finished 6th overall in the 450MX class for the outdoor series and was the 2015 winner of the prestigious AMA Horizon Award, will pilot a 250 for the Supercross series. He will join his teammates in the 450 class for his sophomore season of the outdoor nationals.
“We have always been blessed to have great sponsors, many of which have been long-time, loyal sponsors here at BBMX,” says Team Owner, Forrest Butler. “Rocky Mountain is the next chapter for us, and we are both pleased and very proud to announce our new race team, the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS Team. We have a great rider line up this year with Davi Millsaps and Blake Baggett in the 450 class and rookie sensation Benny Bloss in the 250 class. Along with our long time sponsors such as FLY, Bubba Burger and FMF, the team at Rocky Mountain ATV/MC shares our drive to win and we feel that 2017 is going to be our year.”
“We are very excited for our new partnership with BBMX and the Factory Services KTM team. The driving force of RMATV/MC has always been our passion for powersports, so the opportunity to create the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS Team seemed like the perfect way to continue to share that passion with the industry,” says Dan Thomas, CEO of Rocky Mountain ATV/MC. “Davi Millsaps, Blake Baggett and Benny Bloss are all excellent riders, each incredibly talented and driven. We are proud to stand behind them and cheer them on throughout the 2017 SX and MX seasons.”
The team will debut at the Monster Energy Cup at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas on October 15. The team will then look forward to Anaheim 1 for the kickoff of the 2017 Monster Energy AMA Supercross World Championship.
