CycleTrader.com Signs On As Title Sponsor for Rock River Powersports Yamaha Motocross Racing Team

2 12 2013

NORFOLK, VA – December 2, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – CycleTrader.com, the nation’s largest powersports marketplace, has announced they will join Rock River Powersports as the title sponsor for their motocross racing team. This partnership gives CycleTrader.com a stronger presence in the motocross world while providing the Rock River team with the resources to help pro and amateur riders as they compete nationwide.

“CycleTrader.com is very involved in every aspect of the powersports industry,” said Paige Bouma, general manager of CycleTrader.com. “We felt it was time to elevate our profile in the motocross arena and bring CycleTrader to an entirely new generation of riders. We could not think of a better way to do so than by supporting these hardworking motocross athletes. We are proud to join the Rock River Powersports team.”

Rock River Racing arose from the joint effort between Rock River Powersports, a 5-Star Pro Yamaha multi-specialist dealer, and Roost MX, one of the fastest growing graphics companies in the country. The premise behind the Rock River program is to support riders from their PW50 years through their 450 Supercross years.

“We have worked so hard for the past 5 years, and we knew if we held on, good things would happen,” said team owner Mike DuClos. “CycleTrader.com is an amazing addition to our program, and we can’t thank them enough for the support they are giving us.”

The original Rock River supercross/motocross professional team was formed in 2009 under the direction of team owner Mike DuClos and team manager Christina Denney. Riders signed up so far for the 2014 season include Ben Lamay, Alex Martin, and Greg Gehrer, with a fourth rider in the works.

Mike Guerra, Racing Division department manager at Yamaha Motor Corporation, said, “We’re really excited about adding CycleTrader to the team and look forward to having another successful year of racing.”

CycleTrader.com is also launching a new “Pro Pit Corner” on the homepage where you can interact with the team’s riders, manager, owner, and pro mechanics. This site section will offer team giveaways, tech tips, team tracking, an event calendar, and an exclusive sale link to the team’s factory Yamaha race bikes.

Traffic Log Pro Gives Suzuki Dealers Real-Time Internet Leads

30 10 2012

The American Suzuki Motor Corp. has announced it will send its consumer Internet leads through the powersports industry’s largest lead management provider, Traffic Log Pro.

CLEARWATER, FL – October 30, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The American Suzuki Motor Corp. has announced it will send its consumer Internet leads through the powersports industry’s largest lead management provider, Traffic Log Pro. Traffic Log Pro is part of a comprehensive business suite for the industry from Dominion Powersports Solutions.

The move allows Suzuki dealers to have a single place to track their vehicle leads, manage them, and convert them into sales. Since these leads will be moved in real-time from Suzuki to Traffic Log Pro, dealers will receive e-mail inquiries from consumers about Suzuki’s leading two and four-wheel products shortly after the consumer clicks the “send” button.

“We did this to ensure our dealers can better track and manage their leads from Suzuki, and in an application that they’re already using to turn customers into buyers,” said Steve Bortolamedi, Suzuki’s Senior Communications Manager, MC/ATV Division.
Traffic Log Pro is the only industry lead management company to have this agreement in place with Suzuki.

“We’re extremely pleased to be working with one of today’s dominant powersports brands,” said Neil Pascale, business development manager for Dominion Powersports Solutions. “We know Traffic Log Pro can help Suzuki dealers turn more leads into sales by providing one central hub for all of their lead sources, as well as necessary lead tracking that’s so key to increasing unit sales in today’s market.”

Suzuki dealers will continue to receive consumer Internet leads through Suzuki’s existing internal system. Now, Suzuki dealers also can receive these same leads in Traffic Log Pro, allowing sales staff to track these leads as they progress through the sale process. Traffic Log Pro also features detailed lead management reporting which can serve as the focus of sales department staff meetings.

Traffic Log Pro works with OEMs in the powersports and marine industries, providing lead management process and accountability as well as national and regional sales activity reporting. Traffic Log Pro is part of the Dominion Powersports Solutions suite of dealer services, including PowerSports Network, CycleTrader.com, DMS provider ZiiOS, and data provider/analysis Dominion Insights.
