Foremost Insurance is once again the title sponsor of the team. Kenda Tires will be the official team tire. Kenda Tires was the first company to support Neese in making his dream of owning a professional motocross team a reality.
Riding for the team during the 2008 - 2009 eleven-race series will be team owner and manager Jim Neese, along with Mike McDade and Josh Thomas.
"We are ready for the season to start. I am very excited that Foremost Insurance is back as the title sponsor of the team. We had a great first season with Foremost; winning the Lites East Championship (the second Lites East Championship in a row for the team). Foremost Insurance has helped us step up our program. They are a great partner and really support outdoor motor sports," notes Neese.
"We plan to consistently run up front in the Arenacross Series and to branch out and start to race some of the Supercross Lites East races. We are expanding to a three-man team and I am confident that we are going to be fighting for wins," added Neese.
The Arenacross Series opener will be January 2 - 4, 2009 at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Grand Rapids is always a great event for the team since it is where Foremost Insurance is headquartered.
