Southern California’s L & M Racing wishes to thank Team riders Chad Reed & Nate Ramsey for an incredible 2008 race season. Chad Reed for winning the 2008 AMA/FIM Supercross Series Championship, and Nate Ramsey for consistently placing in the Top 10 and finishing 7th overall in the Championship race.
It is with great regret however, that L & M Racing officially announces today that Chad Reed will not race as part of the L & M Race Program in 2009. While an offer was made to Reed to re-sign with L & M Racing, the terms between the rider and the team could not be reached. Team L & M / San Manuel looks forward to working with Reed through the remainder of his current contract period.
L & M Racing, and the team’s title team sponsor, San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, have enjoyed the opportunity to work with such a strong and determined champion during the past two years and are thankful to Reed for all he has done to contribute to the success of the Team.
L & M Racing was formed in 2006 by Owner/Team Manager Larry Brooks and partner Mike Kranyak. In its second year of operation, L & M Racing’s 2008 team: Team San Manuel Yamaha, consists of 2004 and 2008 Supercross Champion Chad Reed and former West Coast Lites Champion Nate Ramsey. Led by Brooks, a key component in the Jeremy McGrath / Chaparral Racing team’s three-year championship reign in Supercross; the first and only independent team to ever win the AMA Supercross Series Championship, L & M is one of the most successful independently-owned & operated teams in professional Supercross racing today.
