Amsoil Joins WORCS for 2010

Amsoil Joins WORCS for 2010

AMSOIL Joins WORCS for 2010

For the 2010 season, AMSOIL will be joining the WORCS Series starting Round 1 at Speedworld MX Park in Wittmann, AZ. We caught up with Scott Smith to see what AMSOIL is all about and what to expect for this 2010 season.

What is AMSOIL?
AMSOIL introduced the first synthetic motor oil with an API (American Petroleum Institute) Service Classification in 1972. Since that time, AMSOIL has varied and expanded its product line. AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants are fuel efficient, extended-life lubricants manufactured from select synthetic base stocks and special purpose additives. These lubricants provide improved overall performance characteristics when compared to conventional petroleum oils. AMSOIL isn't just oil, it's technology.

What products does AMSOIL carry?
AMSOIL makes synthetic-based oils and fluids for all types of engines, transmissions and rear ends, including motorcycles/ATVs (four-stroke, two-stroke, on-road and off-road), trucks (diesel and gas), boats, RVs, snow mobiles and small engines (lawn mowers and generators).

What products in the AMSOIL line do you think WORCS racers will want to use most?
WORCS racers would not only be interested in the products available for their race bikes and ATVs, but also for the vehicles they use to haul them. These products include engine and transmission oils and fluids, two-stroke oils, suspension fluids, rear-end gear lube and bearing grease. Every mile or minute they use AMSOIL they are putting money in their pocket by protecting their investment through reduced operating temperatures and increased operating efficiency.

Where can I find AMSOIL at the WORCS races?
A full line of AMSOIL products are available from your independent AMSOIL dealer SS Enterprises on vendor row.

AMA Racing 2010 Pro/Am schedule

American Motorcyclist AssociationImage via Wikipedia
Courtesy of American Motorcyclist Association
Many amateur motocross racers dream of racing in the Lucas Oil AMA Motocross Championship. One way to make that dream a reality is to hone your skills at AMA Racing Pro/Am events. It's at these venues where up-and-coming racers earn the points, purse money and contingency support to help them climb the competitive ladder.
"Our 2010 AMA Racing Pro/Am schedule features quality race tracks and events that are promoted by some of this country's top organizers," said AMA Director of Racing Joe Bromley. "With around 40 races on the calendar and at least $150,000 in guaranteed purse available to the fastest amateur American motocross racers on the planet, we're confident this schedule provides the challenges to prepare these young racers for the next level."

Bromley added that one factor in developing the current schedule was the increased minimum age requirements for a pro license.

"In 2010, the minimum age to acquire a professional license rises to 17, and in 2011, that will increase to 18," Bromley said. "What that also means is that many of today's top amateurs will spend more time in the Pro/Am ranks. That reality pushed us to create a schedule that best suits the up-and-coming A-class rider looking to build skill and confidence to race with the professional racers at the national level."

AMA Racing Pro/Am motocross events are open to both professionally licensed and A-class amateur motocross racers. The events allow amateurs to gain experience on America's top tracks and prepare for the fast pace and long motos that professional racing demands.

To be considered for a professional motocross license, competitors must have earned at least 75 advancement points (at the time of application) in AMA Racing Pro/Am motocross events in a continuous 12-month period. Points are based off overall finishes in either the 250 Pro/Am and Open Pro/Am classes. Points from each class will not be combined.

AURORA, Ill. – Feld Motor Sports announced today that CBS Sports will air a one-hour season preview of the 2010 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, Saturday, December 26 at 2:30 p.m. EST.

“This is a great way to showcase the 2010 Monster Energy Supercross championship to a network audience,” said Todd Jendro, senior director of operations, Feld Motor Sports. “Last year’s racing was epic and with the emergence of guys like Ryan Villopoto, Josh Grant and Ryan Dungey, we have an amazing season in store and CBS Sports will capture it all December 26 at 2:30 EST.”

CBS Sports will take an in-depth look at the defending AMA Supercross champion James Stewart’s quest to earn his third career championship while holding off rival Chad Reed and a host of up-and-coming riders that are eager to steal Stewart’s thunder. After an 11-win season in 2010, Stewart returns to the San Manuel Yamaha team in pursuit of excellence.

Former two-time AMA Supercross class champion Reed will switch from the Factory Suzuki team to the Monster Energy Kawasaki team. A three-time race winner in 2009, Reed chased Stewart down to the final stop of the season at Las VegasSam Boyd Stadium in what is considered the greatest season in the sport’s history. Within the one-hour show, Reed gives fans a unique perspective on his 2010 campaign.

Reed joins AMA Supercross class sophomore Ryan Villopoto under the Monster Energy Kawasaki tent. Villopoto earned two victories in 2009 and is the only rider in history to beat Stewart in a race that he did not crash.

After winning the Anaheim 1 race last year, Josh Grant earned valuable experience in the premier class and will be prepared for battle when the gate drops on the 2010 season January 9. Moving up from the AMA Supercross Lites class is Ryan Dungey who successfully captured the Western Regional title last year. Dungey raced in select AMA Supercross class races in 2008, finishing as high as second at the Minneapolis stop.

Husqvarna officially returns to AMA National Enduro competition

Husqvarna Motorcycles S.r.l.Image via Wikipedia
Courtesy of Husqvarna USA
December 21, 2009 - Woodcliff Lake, NJ - Look for Team Husqvarna to take the podium in several different disciplines during the 2010 season as the factory plans to reestablish the brand as the leader in off-road racing. The past season provided an excellent starting point according to Husqvarna Motorcycles NA president Mark Brady. "We are very pleased to build on Husqvarna's rich racing heritage," says Brady. "However, we are now ready to make some more history!"
Speaking of history in the making, Husqvarna's Glenn Kearney campaigned the GNCC series on a 2-stroke WR300. He also won the overall at the infamous SETRA Little Brown Jug for good measure. Meanwhile Adrien Chareyre bagged an X Games medal on a SM450; bubbly Canadian export Cory Graffunder earned EnduroCross cheers with a couple of podiums and 4 heat race wins aboard his TC250. And then the Ty Davis-led Zip-Ty Racing team finished top 2-Stroke and 3rd overall at the grueling Glen Helen 24-Hour.
However Husqvarna's top 2009 moments may have been when Desert Master Nick Burson won the United States Desert Racing Series on his TC510, not to mention winning the overall at the legendary Elsinore GP. And to top it all off Nick earned the #1 Open Plate in AMA District 37 Desert competition - an accomplishment that Husqvarna hadn't achieved in more than a decade! But as the man said, "you ain't seen nothing yet!"
Moving forward into 2010, the factory racers have been signed, including the return of the Zip-Ty Racing effort on the West Coast and Glenn Kearney back East. AMA Hall Of Famer Scot Harden also takes over as the racing chief and will be overseeing all the programs. "The real news is that the program is growing and we plan to really step up the level of our competitiveness," Harden announces as Husqvarna is looking to take back leadership in woods racing. "Husqvarna will be reentering the AMA National Enduro Series after a 20-year hiatus."
Aussie export Glenn Kearney will be back in 2010, competing in AMA GNCC and AMA National Enduro events. "We are glad to have Glenn back and look forward to him reuniting the Husqvarna name with Enduro dominance on his TXC250," says Harden. Kearney will be supported by his brother Ben who will be traveling with him to provide technical support.
"We have contracted Zip-Ty Racing again to compete in the 2010 WORCS, AMA National Hare & Hound, EnduroCross, District 37, Big 6 and other major West Coast events," Harden adds. The riders are:
  • Ty Davis, Team Manager (also competing in select races).
  • Bobby Garrison, Former WORCS Champion - Garrison will compete in the WORCS series and other select West Coast off-road events on his TC450. He will also compete in AMA District 37 Big 6 Grand Prix Events.
  • Cory Graffunder - AMA EnduroCross, World EnduroCross, Hell's Gate and other extreme events aboard a TC250 or WR300 2-Stroke.
  • Nick Burson, Defending USDR #1 Plate Holder/Elsinore GP Champ - Burson will race AMA National Hare & Hound, U.S. Desert Racing, D-37 Desert and Big 6 series on his Desert Master TXC450.
"After reentering the racing arena in 2009, Husqvarna is focused on improving its results and competing for championships in 2010," explains Harden. "We have a very talented team with the right combination of youth and experience to drive the program forward. We look forward to competing throughout the year to reestablish Husqvarna as the leader in off-road racing."

Grant Langston Returns to Racing with O'neal

Courtesy of Oneal Racing
Simi Valley, CA - The last season Grant Langston raced was in 2007.  The 25-year-old Langston ­­had battled his way thru the AMA National Motocross Series to win the Championship title in the premier 450 class! Grant then went onto the Las Vegas US Open in 2007 and also walked away victorious taking the 2007 US Open title! 

After a World Championship title, 2 AMA Outdoor National titles, 2 Supercross Championship titles and a US Open title, it was clear, the young racer was in fact one of the most talented riders to ever grace the sport.

At the start of the 2008 Racing season Grants life took a tragic detour. Grant developed a problem with his vision.  At first, it was thought to be a minor eye issue but was soon discovered to be Cancer of the eye.  In true racers form, Grant battled the disease thru 2008.  In early 2009, Grant was given a clean bill of health from his doctors.  Indeed, the cancer was in remission and the unthinkable was told to Grant – He was clear to go racing!

Grants triumphant return to racing is no longer a dream.  Grant will be entered into Round one of the US Supercross series in Anaheim California on January 9, 2010. 

Grant is taking this journey seriously and has been carefully preparing his body, bike and equipment so that he has the absolute finest tools to compete throughout the 2010 season.

Grant has chosen O’NEAL protective apparel and Yamaha motorcycles for his triumphant return.  Langston will compete in the 450 class for both the US Monster Supercross Series and the US AMA National Motocross series in 2010.  “I was lucky and caught the cancer early.  I spent 2008 treating the cancer and with the support of my family and friends have since recovered well.  I have been training hard and am eager to be on the bike racing again.”  Langston went on to say, “O’NEAL makes some fantastic gear and I am excited to be racing in their new 2010 line.”

O’NEAL, established in 1970, produces superior quality motorcycle protective apparel, helmets and accessories and distributes them worldwide.  Frank Kashare, O’Neal’s Vice President said, “We are proud to be associated with Grant.  He is an inspiration to all of us at O’NEAL and we look forward to racing with Grant for many years to come.  He truly is a Champion on and off the track!”

Look for # 8 to be a regular on the podium throughout the Supercross and Outdoor National Series.

Led by Motocross Support Specialist Brian Noah, the 2010 amateur MX team will consist of 16 racers ranging in ages 10 to 17 and will focus on grooming this young talent for success. The racers will be competing on Suzuki's lineup of championship-winning bikes, including the RM85, the all-new RM-Z250, and race-proven RM-Z450.

"This year will be an exciting year for Suzuki and our sponsors.

Also competing on the RM85 in the 85 12-13 class will be Alexander Frye of Huntingtown, Maryland, Steven Gretchen of McMechen, West Virginia, and Jordon Smith of Belmont, North Carolina.  Competing in the 85 14-15 and Supermini classes will be Jesse Masterpool of Austin, Nevada, and Jace Owen of Charleston, Illinois.

Aboard the all-new Suzuki RM-Z250, Joey Savatgy, from Thomasville, Georgia, and Jeremy Martin, from Millville, Minn., will compete in the 250B and Schoolboy classes. Bryce Stewart from Canyon Lake, Calif., will be competing on the RM-Z250 and RM-Z450 in the 250B and 450B classes.

In the 250A and 450A classes, Gannon Audette, from Cairo, Georgia, Austin Howell, from Red Bluff, Calif., and Nick Paluzzi of Riverside, Calif., will all be utilizing the RM-Z250 and RM-Z450 motorcycles in 2010.

The Rockstar Makita Suzuki Amateur Team would like to thank the following sponsors for providing support to the team in 2010:

Boyesen, Braking, Cometic, CTI2, Dunlop, Excel, E-Z Up, Hinson Racing, Hotcams, Lightspeed, Makita, Matrix, Maxima, Millenium Technologies, Motion Pro, Moto Tassinari, One Industries, Pivot Works, Pole Position Raceway, RK, Rockstar Energy Drink, Sunline, Tag Metals, TCR Wheel Lacing, Thor, Twin Air, Vortex Ignitions, Vortex Racing Components, VP Race Fuels, and Wiseco. 

Yamaha Announces 2010 Race Teams

Courtesy of Yamaha Motor Corp
Cypress California, Dec 18, 2009 –Yamaha Motor Corporation is proud to announce our largest ever contingent of Supercross/Motocross race teams for the 2010 season, this after a highly successful 2009 season, which saw San Manuel Yamaha’s James Stewart pilot his 2009 YZ450F to the prestigious 2009 FIM World Supercross title.
Team L&M and San Manuel Yamaha will once again have Stewart at the helm pursuing his third Supercross Championship. With a successful off-season and the all new 2010 YZ450F at his disposal, James is looking forward to making this season a most memorable one. James’ teammate at San Manuel Yamaha will be Josh Hill. A product of Yamaha’s amateur program, Josh has already proven himself as a threat to win main events after his maiden victory at Minneapolis in 2008. Josh returns fit and is ready for a fresh start and the opportunity to return to his rightful place on the podium.
Joe Gibbs Racing/Muscle Milk/Toyota team has 2009 Anaheim 1 winner Josh Grant returning for his sophomore season in the premier Supercross class. The surprise of 2009 with his solid performances both indoors and outdoors, Josh made the transition from the Lites class look easy. Joining him is newcomer to the team Justin Brayton. Winning the final AMA National moto of the year was a true breakthrough for Justin and combined with his impressive off-season performances, Justin starts out the 2010 Season ready for action.
DNA Shred Stix/Star Racing continues to be Yamaha’s official Lites team and with the new 2010 YZ250F, the team is ready for a successful season. During the off-season Star Racing made quite a few impressive rider acquisitions, hiring Nico Izzi, Martin Davalos and Max Anstie. Returning is team captain Broc Tickle who had his best season ever in 2009. Currently Tickle and Izzi are set to ride the West Coast rounds and Davalos and Anstie the East Coast rounds.
MotoConcepts Racing is joining the Yamaha Family for 2010. With the leadership of Michael Young as their Team Director and a successful freshman season under their belt, the team is looking to go big in 2010. Led by 450 riders Matt Goerke and Dan Reardon the team is looking to make an impact right off the bat. MotoConcepts will field four Lites riders, with seasoned veterans Ryan Sipes and Jeff Alessi showing the ropes to Vince Friese and Yamaha’s amateur standout Travis Baker. Alessi and Baker are set to race the West Coast rounds and Sipes and Friese the East Coast rounds.
After a very successful outdoor season in 2009, Valli Motorsports team owner Chad Lanza is entering the world of Supercross in a big way for 2010 with the hiring of two-time Supercross Lites Champion and 2005 AMA Lites National Champion Ivan Tedesco to be their premier class rider. With a wealth of experience, Tedesco is the perfect guy to put the Valli Motorsports 2010 YZ450F on the podium on a weekly basis. Joining Ivan is rookie standout Kyle Regal who had some inspiring rides during the outdoor season with Valli Motorsports. Fresh out of the amateur ranks, Kyle’s entering his freshman season in Supercross, set to ride the West Coast rounds on the YZ250F and will be switching to the YZ450F for the outdoors.
Finally, former 125 AMA National Champion, 450 AMA National Champion and two-time Lites Supercross Champion Grant Langston will be returning to action in 2010 after embarking on a partnership with the JLaw/ampm/Boost Mobile Racing team. A fan favorite, Langston has battled back from a serious eye issue that almost had him retiring prematurely. Langston will be joined by another fan favorite and former West Coast Lites Champion, Jason Lawrence. Rounding out the team will be Sean Hamblin and Ryan Newton.
Riding Yamaha’s would be enough for riders like James Stewart, Nico Izzi, Ivan Tedesco and their teams to have a competitive advantage, but they also choose to outfit their race bikes with Yamaha’s exclusive line of GYTR (Genuine Yamaha Technology Racing) engine performance and functional products and Yamalube’s range of high performance lubricants.
“Unfortunately, there are only three positions on the podium!”, said Yamaha’s Racing Division Manager, Keith McCarty. “We have established strong new partnerships with some of the best and brightest Teams for the 2010 season and we look for Yamaha along with our in-house partners Yamalube, and GYTR to be the brands of choice!”

Travis Pastrana"Me and others have made great careers out of doing incredible things... no, IMPOSSIBLE things on motorcycles! However it was Magoo who showed everybody way back when what was possible if you just decided to go for it, and the fans loved him for it," explains Pastrana. "I'm honored to help because what Danny is doing now for motorcycle safety is super important. I want to encourage others who, like Bob Hannah said, 'have the ability to give towards this,' to take up the Challenge to get Magoo his new van," Pastrana added.
Pastrana is the lucky 13th name to be added to the list of 20 as part of Bob "Hurricane" Hannah's Challenge that has been promoted in weekly issues of Cycle News. Pastrana joins Hannah, Terry Knott, Bob Fox, Bruce Lockwood, Glen Helen Raceway Park, Mark Barnett, Jimmy Weinert, PDM TV, Jason Lawrence, Tom Reese/Springfield Armory and Hi-Torque Publications with his contribution towards the Challenge. This leaves seven (7) spots left to fill by those individuals or companies who have the ability and want to help meet Hannah's challenge and make Brad Lackey's van project for Chandler happen before the end of the year.
"Having another current motorcycle star of Travis Pastrana's caliber help us, will go a long way to completing this project for Magoo," said Brad Lackey, America's First Motocross World Champion. "If there is a guy today that recognizes the trail Danny blazed for all of the current riders, that guy is Travis Pastrana."
"It's awesome that Travis is stepping up to meet the challenge," added 7-Time National Motocross and Supercross Champion Bob "Hurricane" Hannah. "Some of us hung it out every time we raced, and Pastrana has really hung it out during his career. However, Magoo was the first and its great that Travis understands this," Hannah concluded.
All the donations for this challenge campaign are tax deductible with 501(c)(3) status.
