Jeremy McGrath’s record speaks for itself as well. Jeremy, also known as “The King of Supercross”, and “MC”, is the most decorated rider in the history of Supercross – a record 72 AMA Supercross wins, and a record 7 AMA Supercross Series titles.

Jeremy says “I’m excited as ever, and looking forward to 2012. As a team owner I feel very good about the direction we are taking, and the new things we hope to bring to the sport and industry. Larry and I have been working together for many years, and we have great sponsors.”

In addition to title sponsor Supercross.com, the first media outlet to secure such a premier partnership and the opportunities it presents, American Honda, along with FMF, DID, GoPro, DC, Nudge, ODI Grips, CYCRA Plastic, MOTUL Oil, Mattrex, 1.7 Cleaning Supply, XPC, VP Fuels, Vortex Sprockets, Champion Storage, Ironclad, Twin Air, Dubya, Dunlop Tires, Aero Motorsports and Angry Bikes will be supporting the team.

The new Supercross.com / Honda racing team will feature Andrew Short as their first rider, and “Shorty” will be back on racing equipment he’s familiar with – factory Honda CRF450’s.

Andrew, one of the most like-able and friendly riders on the circuit said, “Teaming with Larry and Jeremy was the best place for me to go. They are very dedicated, and with Honda I know I’m getting a good group of people behind the team as well. I’m looking forward to racing in 2012, being back on Honda, and with all the support we have, I believe together we can reach a new level in the sport.”

The new season starts with the AMA Supercross Series, January 7th, 2012, at Angel Stadium in Anaheim California. The Supercross Series runs 17 races across the USA, and then the AMA Motocross season starts their 12 event series in late May.

Combine the expertise of Brooks, McGrath, and Short, with the solid support and resources of Honda and Supercross.com, it looks like the new Supercross.com / Honda racing team is poised to elevate the sport of supercross and motocross to new levels.

Metal Mulisha is proud to announce that ‘Black Friday,’ one of the industry’s most anticipated films, will be released on January 6th via iTunes and select retailers around the U.S. Starring the full Mulisha team, including founder Brian Deegan, Ronnie Faisst, Todd Potter, Wes Agee, Taka Higashino and Jacko Strong, ‘Black Friday’ takes viewers behind the scenes with the world’s most famous freestyle motocross team.

From Deegan and Potter’s Temecula compounds to Danimal’s Domain and the outback of Australia, ‘Black Friday’ pulls out all the stops in an hour-long movie that celebrates riding on the edge and an adrenaline-filled lifestyle that Mulisha has been known for since 1999. ‘Black Friday’ is the first movie release from Mulisha in more than four years.

‘Black Friday’ features amazing jump footage shot by director, Jay Schweitzer, from both aerial and ground viewpoints. Highlights include Wes Agee and Todd Potter’s world record 190-foot backflip, Brian Deegan’s fight against Dave Mirra at EllisMania 7, and Jimmy Fitzpatrick’s helicopter dive.

The film also pays tribute to Mulisha’s fallen teammates, Jeff ‘Ox’ Kargola, who passed away earlier this year; and never-before-seen footage of team rider Jeremy Lusk, who died in 2009.

“Black Friday is another example that Mulisha is the greatest freestyle motocross team on the planet, hands down,” said Deegan. “We’re a tight group of guys who love to ride, compete and have fun every step of the way. This movie shows that we’re still willing to push the limits, whether on a dirtbike, rally car or in the ring.”

The Black Friday trailer, which begins with the team arriving in an all-black Mulisha helicopter, can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_HJ6ijeksA. The movie will be available on iTunes this December for $9.99. The following week, fans can purchase the DVD at selected retailers.
