Morgantown, W.Va. -- Racer Productions, producers of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series, are pleased to announce that American Suzuki Motor Corp. has offered Josh Strang's 2010 RM-Z450, the bike he competes on in the GNCC series, to Racer Productions. Racer Productions will raffle the bike off at the Motorcycle-USA.com Snowshoe GNCC, and all proceeds will benefit the RiderDown Foundation.
"Josh is off to an incredible start and the rumor mill is buzzing that he is on some "Factory exotica," said Mike Webb, Off Road Race Team Manager. "Well, the truth is that Josh is on a production 2010 RM-Z450, with exactly the same bike and aftermarket accessories available to anyone. The only way to prove this is by letting one lucky fan walk away with his race bike immediately after the Snowshoe round and American Suzuki is thrilled with the proceeds of the Racer Productions raffle going to The RiderDown Foundation."
"We couldn't be more excited," said Bruce Vermeulen, President of RiderDown Foundation. "To have Josh Strang's 2010 race bike up for grabs and benefitting RiderDown is unbelievable. The support of guys like Josh who are out there campaigning the GNCC series means a lot to us and the injured riders we work with. My hat's off to Racer Productions and American Suzuki for making this happen."
Raffle tickets can be purchased during the next three rounds of GNCC Racing, beginning with this weekend's Motorcycle-USA.com Yadkin Valley Stomp. The winner will be announced at Snowshoe, and the bike handed off to the winner after Strang crosses the finish line.
"American Suzuki is proud of the accomplishment that Josh has made so far and to be able to prove that the 2010 RM-Z450 is not only a championship caliber motocrosser but a race winning off-road bike," said Pat Alexander, American Suzuki's Amateur Race Support Manager.
The series travels this weekend to the Motorcycle-USA.com Yadkin Valley Stomp, held May 8-9 in Yadkinville, North Carolina. ATVs race on Saturday, and bikes race on Sunday.
