L & M Racing joins Supercross series
Cypress CA – Yamaha Motor Corporation USA is proud to announce its
support for the newly formed Supercross race team: L & M Racing.
The team will contest the 2007 – 2008 Supercross series. Supercross
Champion, and current Yamaha Factory racer, Chad Reed and former West
Coast “Lites” Champion Nathan Ramsey will race under the L & M tent
aboard Yamaha YZ 450 F machines this coming season.
Team Manager Larry Brooks has the experience, credentials and top
racing talent that will enable L & M Racing to be competitive right
out of the gate. A former factory racer and Team Manager, Brooks was a
key component in the Jeremy McGrath/Chaparral Racing team’s three-year
championship reign in Supercross; the first & only outside team to
ever win the AMA Supercross Series Championship.
“We have the utmost confidence in Larry Brooks, Chad Reed and Nate
Ramsey, and feel this team will further promote the Yamaha brand,”
explains Yamaha Racing Division Manager, Keith McCarty. “It’s another
step in the right direction for motocross and we are confident L &
M Racing will attract additional outside sponsors that, in turn, will
create more interest and visibility for our sport.”
The L & M Racing Team will concentrate on the AMA and World
Supercross Championships and additional stadium races during the 2007
and 2008 series. They will provide a more detailed racing scheduled and
