AMA Professional Jack Carpenter scheduled for Anaheim team debut
Phoenix, Arizona. – CrossX Supercross / Motocross racing team today announced the final rider selection and hiring of New York native and AMA Professional Jack Carpenter to compete for the coveted AMA ClearChannel Supercross "West" Championship & AMA National Motocross Series.
Jack and the new CrossX team are scheduled to appear at the season opener January 7th in Anaheim at Edison Field. Team CrossX recently announced within the last month its new relationship and status as one of Yamaha Motor Corporation’s (Factory Supported Racing Teams) for the ’06 season. The new team will be competing with the newly designed Aluminum Chassis ’06 YZ250F models. Also joining Jack is his new teammate Mr. Josh Lichtle and he will be competing for the “East” Championship in the series. Josh had recently moved to Phoenix, Arizona from the colder regions of Michigan and is enjoying the warm weather as he prepares and train for battle in the highly competitive AMA series under the CrossX / Yamaha banners. Both of these young guns are highly skilled and have the talent to become fan favorites. “I’m really excited with the idea of heading to the starting gates with one of these fast Yamaha’s” said Carpenter in today’s briefing after his testing session held at Speedworld in Northwest Phoenix the future home of the team’s private testing facility.
The CrossX Supercross / Motocross team will compete throughout North America in 16 rounds of competition in the Supercross series commencing in January and the AMA Pro Racing Motocross 12 event season that follows.
