Shawn Norfolk, Director of Marketing for Tag Metals said, “We’re really excited about the finishes in Texas! Our guys kicked butt down there today! It’s a great day for Tag Metals and for these kids. We have spent an incredible amount of effort in revitalizing the Tag Metals brand. Our product has improved dramatically, our racing efforts for 2009 have improved, and our customer service has improved. We’re here to make a difference. That is why we created the Factory 8 amateur program as well…to improve our amateur racing results and to help make a difference for these families that devote their lives to racing motocross. The Factory 8 program is off to a good start and we’re gearing up for Vegas. Congratulations to our team and their families.
