FARMINGDALE, N.J. ― Bel-Ray announces its support of professional supercross racer Josh Hansen for the 2013 racing season.

Hansen competed for the Bel-Ray sponsored racing team Hart and Huntington during the 2012 Supercross series and will continue for 2013 with his new team L&M Racing. Despite an injury that shortened his 2012 Supercross campaign, Hansen finished eighteenth in the overall series standings.

Hansen's affiliation with Bel-Ray began in 1982 when his father Donnie won both the 250 Motocross and 250 Supercross Championships aboard his Bel-Ray sponsored Honda CR250R.

"I'm stoked to be a part of the Bel-Ray team,and I'm looking forward to a great 2013 season," said Hansen. "When I looked for a lubricants sponsor, for 2013 Bel-Ray was my only choice. Their products worked great in my 2012 bike and I know I can count on them to provide the performance I need to succeed."

The race-proven Bel-Ray products that Hansen will use to compete during the 2013 season are the same advanced lubricants found on dealer’s shelves, including:

Silicone Detailer & Protectant Spray- A premium product specially formulated to provide a spectacular finish to all plastic and metal surfaces. Designed to resist the attraction of dust and dirt on the surface of parts treated, it will not react with paint, metals or plastics but still binds well to surfaces leaving behind the new bike shine.

Bel-Ray Works Thumper Racing Full Synthetic Ester 4T Engine Oil - A 4-stroke synthetic motorcycle racing oil developed for full works competition use. Full synthetic ester base oils are designed and proven to withstand extreme racing conditions under high temperatures and stresses providing the ultimate 4-stroke motorcycle oil.

We are excited to see Josh perform at the front of the pack this season.”
