TwoTwo Motorsports secured their immediate plans with the announcement last week that Ben Townley would be filling in for the injured team patriarch over the summer. The popular Kiwi is no stranger to winning here in the states and will hit the ground running with the formidable TwoTwo effort and Factory Honda behind him. BT has a new and refreshed outlook on racing as evidenced by his recent success abroad, and that should translate well when the gate drops on the great outdoors. We always look forward to having him on even if we had to track him down in New Zealand tonight!
Red Bull KTM has plenty to be proud of this season with the milestone wins on the 450 and proving the Austrian based manufacturer can indeed run with the best in both classes. That doesn’t mean that Roger “The Man” DeCoster wasn’t looking to bump up that learning curve even quicker before Dungey’s injury sidelined their 450 championship effort until the summer. Roger still has plenty on his plate and we’ll get his breakdown of their season with only a five rounds remaining.
