Mike Webb, Team Manager, Team Yoshimura Suzuki Racing
This will be Mike’s second year as the team manager for the factory Suzuki squad. After the 2011 Lucas Oil AMA Outdoor Nationals it was announced that Yoshimura will completely take over the factory efforts for Suzuki. There was a lot of speculation as to how this would affect everyone involved from the team personnel to the rider. Now a month after that official announcement it seems not much has changed as they are preparing for the 2012 season and its business as usual. They still have Brett Metcalfe who finished a solid fourth in the Outdoor series this year. A second rider has not yet been announced.
Chad Johnson, Arenacross, Team Babbitts Monster Energy Amsoil Kawasaki
Chad is two time Arenacross champion and has been racing the series full time since 2001. This is his fourth year with the Babbitts team and although he prefers the 450 format, he won both his championships on a 250. During his first championship he won in 2006 they allowed 250 2-strokes in the 450 class and he chose to ride the 2 stroke and it obviously worked. The second championship was in 2008 and he was on a 250 four-stroke. This year has been a slow start as he was leading the main event in Des Moines, the opening round, when he was taken out and finished 14th. In Baltimore this past weekend he finished 3rd on Friday and 6th on Saturday night.
Donnie Emler Jr., Marketing – FMF Power Beverage
FMF was established in 1973 by Lil D’s dad, Donnie Emler Sr. Over the years they have become one of the most recognized brands in action sports and a leader in aftermarket exhaust systems. Recently they announced their version of an energy drink called the FMF Power Beverage PowerBlend. This is a unique drink that offers both energy and hydration with a blend of natural caffeine and vitamins. They currently offer two flavors; Fruit Punch and Lemonade.
Steve Rapp – AMA Superbike Racer and XR1200 Racer
Road racing veteran, Steve Rapp once again had a strong showing in the AMA Superbike Series and the XR1200 Series. Rapp finished the AMA Superbike Series in 9th overall after racing only 12 of the 14 races. His best finish in the Superbike class was a fourth. Rapp finished in second overall in the Vance & Hines XR12000 Series with two wins and five podiums during the series. Last year he raced in the Daytona Sportbike class on a Latus Ducati finishing 4th overall and in 2009 he finished 10th overall in the DSB class.
