“I can’t even put into words how excited we are to be teamed up with such great sponsors like Motosport.com, Honda, GPI, and the Peer Brothers. These companies and individuals love our sport and are committed to excellence in the sport and their business, and that’s what we need to compete,” said team owner Chris Crossland in a statement.
“We are happy for the opportunity to partner with the MotoSport team, which allows us to participate in this great sport at a much higher level than we ever would have been able to on our own,” said Marque Peer, vice president of development for GPI, the world leader in the manufacturer of fuel delivery systems, metering and pumps.
According to the release, MotoSport.com will be producing a video series of the team, which will be hosted on MotoSport.com. “We are all excited,” said MotoSport.com director of marketing Jarrod Rogers. “We built an amazing foundation last year and look to continue that growth into the 2015 season. We are proud to have Guy Cooper in our corner running the team this year along with some great new sponsors. We look forward to an amazing season with Tommy and Fredrick.”
