Tommy's done a great job for us with two podiums in supercross lites, and two fifth-place finishes in the premier supercross class in 2008. Moving Tommy up to the 450 is going to keep our sponsors on the track and in front of the loyal supercross and motocross fans throughout the event. Our 250 program with Kyle, PJ, Hunter and Branden is the most competitive group we have ever fielded in the class. I’m looking forward to an exciting and successful 2009.”
