Our rookie season is now in the books.  This season was a huge learning season for our entire team.  Benjamin had limited seat time on a 600 and most of the MotoAmerica tracks he had never rode a 600 on.  We are so pleased with how our season went.  Sure there were challenging weekends; Road America and Pitt Race come to mind.  Then there was our first top ten at Utah, that was a fantastic weekend.  Our team worked together to make sure that we never missed a race due to mechanical.  We were not able to race the Sonoma round due to injury at Utah but we still attended and enjoyed seeing our fans and friends!  


Kelly and Angie had said if we finished in the top 20 in our rookie season they would be happy and to spite missing a round to injury we still finished 18th!  Kelly and Angie are so very please with this! 


We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their support this season and look forward to working with each of them in the future. 


We cannot thank Jason Pridmore enough for all his work with our team this season.  Jason's experience in the industry was instrumental in helping our team on so many levels.  Jason coached Benjamin preseason and throughout the season.  Jason we appreciate everything you have done for us!  


Thank you to Dainese for putting Benjamin in the best gear on the market.  He had some nasty tumbles and he was well protected.  Curt was amazing with getting the suits designed and to us in a timely manner.  Curt and the Costa Mesa team worked quickly getting repairs made to our crashed suits.  


Thank you to Jeff at Arai.  Jeff was awesome to work with and always kept Benjamin in the best helmets and was always there for us when we had the tumbles. 


 Hustle Hard Performance/Carbonin was amazing to us this season.  Mark was a phone call away and always helped us get what we needed as quickly as possible.  There are not words to say how amazing the Carbonin bodywork is.  It is no secret we had some tip overs and thought we had destroyed some bodywork but that Carbonin bodywork crashed so good.  We started the season with 4 sets of bodywork and ended the season with the same 4 sets os useable good looking bodywork.  One set was still brand new!  Thanks so much Mark! 


Thank you to Motion Pro for the awesome tools!  Wrecking on the bike would be a lot harder if we didn't have your products in our tool box!


Thank you to Galfer for the fantastic rotors and customer service!  


Thank you Vortex for your support this season!  We went through our fair share of rear sets and clip ons this season! 


Huge shout out to Mike at Ohlin's, You gave us great advice and helped with our set ups and we are so appreciative.  Thank you! 


Big thank you to Kyle at Northeast Cycle Outlet for all the parts and most of all stepping in and being our mechanic the last few rounds!  Your help is appreciated! 


Thank you to Matsushima Performance for our engine builds and support during the season!  Grant definitely knows his way around a Suzuki motor!  


Thank you to Devin at Flex Racing for the design work on our crew shirts and the lower for the bike!  We highly recommend Devin!  Our shirts are so cool and lightweight! 


Huge shout out to Steve Hardy and Brian J. Nelson for the amazing pictures this season!  


Thanks to Mike Smith for his dedication and hard work.  He never hesitated to roll up his sleeves and jump in to help! 


Thank you to Benjamin for your hard work this season.  There were many challenging times and you always handled them like the champion you are.   2019 is going to be amazing! 


Thank you to all our faithful fans and those who follow us!  See you in 2019!
