MDK Riders Begin '07 Season on the PodiumThursday, November 9, 2006 | 8:46 AM
San Jose, CA – November 7, 2006 – MDK Riders have been on the podium six times in the first eight opportunities of the 2007 racing season. Xyience / MDK Racing pros Nick Wey and David Vuillemin took 3rd and 2nd respectively Friday and Saturday nights at the Jeremy McGrath Invitational the first weekend in October, and David Vuillemin followed that up with a 3rd place finish on Saturday night at the US Open of Supercross the following weekend in Las Vegas. DV has since gone on to take first place in a UK SX event, and both riders are gearing up for the Canadian Supercross season and the AMA Supercross Series. Recently, the MDK Speed Equipment Arenacross team, burst on the scene at the BooKoo Arenacross Championship Series with three different riders on the podium in three of the four pro main events in Fresno, November 3-4, 2006.
MDK Motorsports has offered a contingency program to anyone riding a MDK Speed Equipment equipped motorcycle in the BooKoo Arenacross Championship Series, but MDK Motorsports and MDK SE took it one step further and established the MDK Speed Equipment AX team composed of Zack Ames, Tyler Bowers, and Tiger Lacey. Eric McCrummen is also initially racing under the MDK SE banner while preparing for a return to the Supercross Lites division. “Our commitment to motocross is obvious to anyone who follows the sport, but we are particularly excited to add a dynamic AX team with both veteran and young racers who know how to get the most from their MDK Speed Equipment performance enhancements,” said MDK Motorsports owner, Mark Kvamme.
“These bikes are simply the best that I have ever raced,” said Tiger Lacey, an Arenacross veteran and MDK Speed Equipment AX team member. “MDK Speed Equipment really delivers what I need from the 250 and 450 bikes and I consistently get great performance from the engine and suspension. I am totally stoked to be on such a great team, have such great equipment, and be a part of such a great overall organization.”
