Orange, Ca., (Oct. 22, 2007) – This weekend’s final round of the Grand National Cross Country Series in Crawfordsville, IN will mark the end of an era. The relationship between Scott Summers and American Honda Motor Company will come to an end. Scott Summers first started receiving support from American Honda Motor Company during 1989. This has been one of the longest professional relationships between a sponsor and individual in our industry. During his time with Honda Summers has earned nearly 100 overall national off-road event wins as well as 9 AMA National overall championship titles.
Summers did much more then win races and titles, he set the standard of what a professional off-road racer would be measured, He will continue to be active in GNCC racing as a team owner for the next three years with a new motorcycle sponsor. Summers’ GNCC team for the 2008, 2009 and 2010 seasons will have two riders in the XC1 class.
Statement from Scott Summers:
Over the years I had the pleasure to meet and work with a lot of great people at Honda. I have many wonderful memories from my years at Honda and have friendships that will continue. I want to personally thank all the people at Honda here in America as well as around the world for the great support and effort they put into my program during the XR years. There will be several announcements coming in the weeks ahead that I know will be as exciting for many of my friends and fans when they hear them as they are for me now. I'm very excited about my new career path and the opportunities it will allow me. My new relationship will provide an opportunity for me to attend a lot of new events and meet a lot of new people. It will also give me the opportunity to catch up with a lot of old friends, I've not seen in a while.
