In addition, professional racer Davi Millsaps joins the 2013 team to compete in the 450 class for both the Supercross and Outdoor Motocross events. The 250 class features returning team members Blake Wharton and Jason Anderson, who will be joined by new additions Ryan Sipes and Nico Izzi. All five riders on the team have achieved success during their racing careers, including a second place overall finish for Millsaps in the 2012 Supercross Championship.
“Bel -Ray's commitment to the team has been remarkable. The support they give, along with the products they provide, are best in class,” said Rockstar Energy Racing Suzuki Team Manager Dave Gowland. “It would be hard to find another brand with the kind of commitment they provide to this team. We are privileged to have them as a partner.”
The race-proven Bel-Ray products that Rockstar Energy Racing Suzuki uses to compete in Supercross and Outdoor Motocross events are the same advanced lubricants found on dealer’s shelves, including:

- Blue Tac Chain Lube - The ultimate chain lubricant for all street, off-road and racing motorcycle chain applications, including ‘O’, ‘X’ and 'Z' ring units. Uniquely designed to resist fling-off even in high speed applications while providing outstanding chain and sprocket life by reducing wear.
“Bel-Ray is very excited to provide support and lubrication technology to the Rockstar Energy Racing Suzuki team,” said Bel-Ray Chief Operating Officer Jennifer Liquori. “It's been proven that Bel-Ray specialty lubricants perform at the extremely high temperature and pressure conditions of the 250 and 450 class machines. We're proud to assist these expert riders in achieving podium success this racing season."
