“We’re very happy that MotoSport has come on as a new title sponsor,” says team owner Mark Kvamme. “We will be introducing several new performance products in 2006 and working with MotoSport, the premiere retailer of parts and accessories to the motocross enthusiast, is very exciting.”
Bill Butcher, president of MotoSport.com, echoed the sentiment.
“MotoSport is a company known for carrying high-quality, high-performance, brand-name products,” says Butcher, “and the knowledge that MDK is developing a line of performance products made this sponsorship a natural fit for MotoSport.”
The team will be receiving a higher level of support from Honda for the 2006 season as well.
“We are extremely happy with our entire sponsor lineup for the 2006 race season,” says team managing director, and former Team Kawasaki team manager Mark Johnson. “Combining forces with industry leaders Honda, Pro Circuit Racing, RG3 Suspension, and our other technical partners will provide a solid platform from which the team can build from for both the 2006 Supercross and Motocross Series. Each of our partners’ long-term commitment to the industry and proven results on and off the track were an absolute factor in our decision of whom to involve ourselves with. The MDK/MotoSport group is committed to providing our athletes the best equipment possible, allowing them to achieve top-level results.”
In addition to MotoSport.com and MSR being added as primary sponsors, the MDK/MotoSport.com/MSR Honda team will be backed by, Pro Circuit, RG3 Suspension, Gaerne Boots, Acerbis, ASV, Hinson, Pivot Works, Renthal, Twin-Air and Bridgestone tires for the 2006 season.
