Kawasaki is making a big push in the motocross market right now, rolling out race wins on the pro and amateur side along with an all-new 2012 KX450F. These are supposed to be lean times for the sport (and economics) but Kawi is still coming after things with aggression.

As proof of Kawasaki's success, the company is backing a new feature here on Racer X Online. Over the next few weeks, we'll dive into the archives of Kawasaki's U.S. motocross and supercross history, weaving stories of the great days of the past--Weinert, Wardy, The Dogger, KIPS and Uni-Trak--with the great rides of today, and some great rides in between--Fro, RC, Bubba, and Team Pro Circuit--all mixed in. It will be a fun tour down memory lane. Are we trying too hard if say we'll be letting the good times roll?

Today's Kawi factory lineup includes Jake Weimer and Ryan Villopoto, as well as the super-strong Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki 250 team.

We'll also dive into 30 years worth of archives from Kawasaki's ground-breaking Team Green amateur program. Pick your favorite rider--there's a good chance they once rode a Kawasaki.

All together, this should be a fun and informative look at Kawasaki's race efforts. Look for debut features here this week!
