Riverside, CA – February 27, 2007 - IMS Products, the leader in extra capacity fuel tanks, is proud to be involved in a new racing effort with one of the icons of our sport. Motocross legend Gary Jones has teamed up with Yoshimura Racing to make the 2007 WORCS series even more exciting.
Gary Jones Racing/Yoshimura currently consists of Gary, Gregory, Justin and Breanna Jones plus MX/SX star rider Casey Johnson. The team is in the building mode, so watch for more new talent to sign on quickly.
"IMS Products is at the core of off road racing," explained IMS President Scott Wright. "We want to be there for everyone we can – from all the factory teams and the Pros all the way down to the beginner racers. We are firmly entrenched in the grass roots efforts and want to show our support and be a part of this team. Its just another way to show our commitment."
IMS has long-term relationships with both Yoshimura and Gary Jones. "We've been supplying fuel systems for Yoshimura's racing ventures for a long time," Wright continued. "When Brant Russell of Yoshimura started talking to me about becoming more involved in off road racing, I was really excited. But I was really thrilled when Gary Jones came onboard. Gary has been racing with IMS Products for the past 20 years. It all came together hand in hand."
IMS Products will be sponsoring the team with all of its product lines: fuel tanks, hand guards and foot pegs.
"We are really happy to be linked with a core company like IMS," Yoshimura's Brant Russell said, "Scott Wright makes the finest quality fuel systems in the world, and Yoshimura makes the best pipes and engine work, it’s a perfect marriage. Look for great things from this fledgling team. It's a team of champions."
