On Saturday, January 26th, on a rain soaked track before 37,322 fans in AT&T Park in San Francisco, Bad Boy Jake Marsack # 66 had an incredible ride in the main event in the AMA Supercross Series. Marsack, from Flint, Michigan, riding for Team Bad Boy and sponsored by Bad Boy Power Drink, started out fifteenth in the main.  Battling the pouring rain and some of the sport's elite riders, he crossed the finish line in fourth place.

During the CBS broadcast of the race aired the next day, announcers Ralph Sheheen, and former SX champ, Jeff Emig said, "Jacob Marsack on the 66, the privateer, not a factory backed ride, all the way up to 4th, what a tremendous ride. Certainly one of the best rides by a privateer all season long."

Rick Ware, manager of Team Bad Boy, said after the race, "Jake Marsack has raised the bar for privateer riders in the SX series. Team Bad Boy always knew he had what it takes to run with the big dogs. Now, everyone in the industry knows."

Marsack’s teammate, Jeff Alessi # 801, has been out due to an injury, but hopes to be on the starting line in San Diego on February 9th.

On Friday, January 25th, and Saturday, January 26th, Bad Boy Chad Johnson # 10, the points leader in the AMA Toyota Arenacross Series, won two in a row at the Broadbent Arena at the Kentucky State Fair Grounds in Louisville. The two first place finishes give Johnson, riding for the Bad Boy Power Drink Honda TUF Racing Team, five checkered flags this season and extends his points lead to twenty-five.

"Chad Johnson just keeps continuing to amaze us", said Bad Boy Power Drink VP of Sales Mike Healy. "Two wins in two nights. That's pretty impressive."

#1 Danny Smith, the defending Toyota AMA Arenacross Series Champion, also rides for the Bad Boy Power Drink Honda TUF Racing Team. Smith is currently tenth in points in the AX division. Rounding out the team is # 74 Ivo Stenbergs, the # 1 rider from Latvia, making his debut in the AX series.
