In an already stacked field of competition, the series gets even stronger as 8th major team signs on to race a full season

AURORA, Ill., (November 3, 2006) – Officials at TiLube/Storm Lake Honda recently announced that they will be racing  the Toyota AMA Arenacross Series where they will field a four-man race team in 2006-’07.

“The addition of the TiLube/Storm Lake Honda program, led by Teddy Maier and Shane Bess, gives the Toyota AMA Arenacross Series eight major, multi-racer teams. This year there are more than a dozen racers that have a legitimate shot at winning races and competing for the title,” said Robert Hansen, director of arenacross. “The potential for another tight points race couldn’t be better.”

The TiLube/Storm Lake Honda program features Maier, an Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Lites  class top 10 contender last year and Bess, who brings to the table a year’s worth of arenacross racing experience at the national level. Joining Maier and Bess will be Kurt McCabe and Kody Molitor. Both McCabe and Molitor have national-level arenacross racing experience as well and instantly make the TiLube/Storm Lake Honda racing team one the deepest in terms of talent on the Toyota AMA Arenacross Series tour.

“It has been quite a while since I have raced arenacross and I am really excited to race this year,” said Teddy Maier. ”The Toyota AMA Arenacross Series couldn’t be more competitive and has solid TV coverage."

Rolling from coast to coast on the Toyota AMA Arenacross Series tour in a new 45-foot transporter, the TiLube/Storm Lake Honda Racing Team will be backed by: 4-PR Racing, Hot Cams/Pivot Works/Hot Rods, Leo Vince Exhaust Systems, Pro Wheel Components, RG3, Podium Ink, Tamer, Dunlop and Ogio. Coordinating everything at the races will be former supercross and Outdoor Nationals racer Brad Hagseth, who’s been hired as the team manager.
