Reid Nordin Awarded Motoplayground Magazine’s Team Manager of the Year

Irvine, Calif. (March 3, 2008) – Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green Manager Reid Nordin was named Team Manager of the Year by Motoplayground Magazine, earning the recognition a second year in a row.

The award takes into consideration many aspects of an amateur program including total manufacturer championships for the season, available contingency, trackside support, team riders, associate sponsors, and the success rate for racers graduating to the pro ranks. According to the magazine, “Team Green simply put does it best.”

Kawasaki’s Team Green program was also recognized for their addition of the Motosport Xtreme Kawasaki team as another stepping stone to the amateur program which continues to build champions year after year.

"It's an honor that I don't carry alone,” said Nordin. “This is something that my name gets attached to, but it is the hard work and dedication of my entire staff and the tremendous riders we assembled that puts me in this position."
