"It was a good season for the team. The competition this season was stacked. It was not easy to make it on the podium. We expanded the program this year and I learned a great deal about what works and doesn't work. I am looking forward to coming back next year and improving our results. I really want to thank Foremost Insurance and Kenda Tires for their sponsorship and support for the team. They made it possible for us to compete in the series. I also want to thank the folks at Feld Entertainment for all their hard work. They did an awesome job of putting on an incredible show this season for all the Arenacross fans," commented Jim Neese.
Jim Neese will continue racing in the MEGA and ULTRA Series during the spring and summer season. He will also host his Jim Neese Rider Development program for riders looking to improve their motocross racing skills.
