AURORA, IL – December 24, 2014 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – With less than a 10 days before the opening round of AMSOIL Arenacross, featuring Ricky Carmichael’s Road to Supercross, Feld Motor Sports ® announced today that FOX Sports 1 will once again serve as the exclusive home of the championship for the 2015 season. Beginning on Sunday, February 8, television coverage will kick off with the opening round from Cincinnati on FOX Sports 1.

“FOX Sports 1 has established itself as the home of the sport and viewers will be treated to some incredible coverage this season in AMSOIL Arenacross,” said Ricky Carmichael. “The battle for the championship will be wide open in 2015, which means every rider will lay it all on the line for the chance to be a part of the Race to the Championship at the end of the season.

Whelen Re-Enters K&N Series as Primary Sponsor for David Garbo Jr.

24 12 2014

Garbo Will Pilot the #31 Whelen Car for Marsh Racing

CHARLOTTE, NC – December 24, 2014 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – When Marsh Racing and longtime team sponsor Whelen Engineering Company, Inc. got the opportunity to put together a race team for 2015, they looked closely at the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. Ted Marsh, owner of Marsh Racing, began searching for not only a championship-caliber driver, but someone he felt could also effectively represent the Whelen brand.

The name of David Garbo Jr. was consistently at the top of his list and he ultimately went to Whelen Vice President of Motorsports, Phil Kurze, with his recommendation. “It’s been a while since the Whelen #31 has been part of the K&N Pro Series,” said Kurze. “With the talented David Garbo, Jr. as our pilot we are looking forward to a lot of excitement and great racing in a very competitive field!”

Marsh commented, “He’s a remarkable young man. We don’t know how he does it all so effectively at just 18 years old. He’s a national racing champion, a college freshman, a licensed private plane pilot, and he has an established charitable organization. We feel not only is he a talented and committed racer, but also someone who represents the future of the sport. We’re quite impressed.”

When asked about his reaction to being chosen to represent such an illustrious brand as Whelen, Garbo’s response was, “I’m so pumped. This company has been a part of racing for more than 20 years and the fact that they recognize my potential and my dedication to racing is the greatest compliment I could ever imagine. My family, friends and fans are so encouraging to me on a daily basis, and I know I can deliver the substance that Whelen is looking for.”

Garbo earned National and Connecticut State Championships in US Legends Cars in 2011 while running late model stock cars part-time with Marcos Ambrose Motor Sports. In 2013 he won prestigious Late Model races, including the Bobby Isaac Classic, and ranked 23rd in the nation in the Whelen All American Series out of thousands of drivers. He was also the highest-ranking rookie driving for Jamie Yelton’s Fat Head Racing. In 2014 he ran a part-time schedule in the K&N Pro Series East with a best finish of seventh in his debut at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Outside the cockpit Garbo has a passion to help students with learning difficulties. He established a charitable organization, The David Garbo Jr. Fund, (which is subsidized by 100% of his race earnings – more than $50,000 to date) to aid other student athletes with learning differences. This passion was fueled in part due to his own learning disabilities, which he overcame to become an honors student at the Forman School in Connecticut. That achievement helped him gain acceptance to High Point University for 2015.

Garbo is represented by Mark Borchetta of The Borchetta Group and Big Machine Motorsports, a division of Country Music’s most prominent record label, Big Machine Records. As the record label for Taylor Swift, the imprint is owned by Mark’s brother, Scott Borchetta. Big Machine is a strong supporter of motorsports – currently with Chip Ganassi Racing Teams including Kyle Larson and Tony Kanaan. Also, Mark Borchetta was responsible for establishing primary sponsorship to launch the IndyCar career of Danica Patrick.

Whelen Engineering Company, Inc. is the “Official Warning Lights of NASCAR” and “The Official Automotive Illumination Lights of NASCAR,” primarily off-road vehicle illumination lights. Whelen has been involved with NASCAR since 1995 and has been a sponsor on a racecar in every NASCAR racing series. They presently are the entitlement sponsor of the NASCAR Whelen All American Series, NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour and the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series.

Whelen and Marsh Racing have been involved with racing together since 1995 including the NASCAR Busch North Series, NASCAR Busch East Series, NASCAR Busch Series and Camping World East Series as well as the K&N Pro Series East with numerous drivers.

AMA announces rule updates for MotoAmerica 2015

23 12 2014

PICKERINGTON, OH – December 23, 2014 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The AMA and MotoAmerica, the new home of the AMA Superbike Series, have announced updates to the rulebook for MotoAmerica, an AMA national championship series and an FIM North America championship. The changes include adding weight to motorcycles in the Superstock 1000 class and a change to the spare-motorcycle requirement in the Supersport class.

The updated rules are available at www.americanmotorcyclist.com/racing/roadracing/roadracingrules.aspx.

To match the recently released FIM Superstock rules, motorcycles competing in the Superstock 1000 class must now weigh a minimum of 170 kilograms (374 pounds) — up from the previously announced weight of 168 kilograms (369.6 pounds). Additionally, motorcycles competing in Supersport and Superstock 600 must comply with a new lowered Superstock Kit ECU price cap of Euro 2,500.

The AMA has also made a change to its spare-motorcycle requirement in the Supersport class with riders and teams now permitted to use their backup motorcycles in the warm-up sessions. Previously, the spare motorcycle could not be used in any practice/warm-up sessions. Teams and riders must, however, declare their primary and spare motorcycles during the initial tech inspection and prior to any on-track activities.

Additionally, the AMA has created an Annex A to all classes, which is basically a rule-change list. Teams and riders can now refer to the Annex A list to more easily track rule changes.

The AMA will also publish approved equipment lists and requirements for suspension and electronics. There will be no fees associated with the application to include components to the approved equipment lists; and there will be no approved equipment lists other than the aforementioned suspension and electronics lists. To receive an application, please submit your request to technicaldirector@motoamerica.com.

MotoAmerica is an affiliate of KRAVE Group LLC, a partnership that includes three-time 500cc World Champion, two-time AMA Superbike Champion, and AMA Hall of Fame Inductee Wayne Rainey, ex-racer and former manager of Team Roberts Chuck Aksland, motorsports marketing executive Terry Karges, and businessman Richard Varner.
