STOW, OH - Mickey Thompson announced its sponsorship of the Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha team in the 250 class for the 2015 racing season.
Well-known in both the worlds of supercross and motocross, the Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha team was recently recognized as the National Team of the Year. After dominating the 2014 season, team member Jeremy Martin earned the 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series Championship crown after just two full competitive seasons, with teammate Cooper Webb finishing third overall for the season.
“Our work with Brian Deegan in the development of the Deegan 38-branded tires and wheels has served as an avenue to the popular two-wheel sports of Supercross and Motocross,” said Ken Warner, Vice President of Marketing for Mickey Thompson. “Supporting team racers Jeremy Martin, Cooper Webb, Aaron Scott Plessinger, and Anthony Rodriguez along with team owner Bobby Regan and the rest of the crew is a fantastic opportunity. These guys are doing incredible things, and we’re proud to be a part of it.”
Mickey Thompson will support the team throughout the 2015 AMA Supercross and Motocross seasons including the FELD Cup competition. Both the Mickey Thompson and Deegan brands will be represented throughout the season, including the display of the Mickey Thompson Deegan 38 tire and wheel products at each event.
