_WP Racing News Release

North Wilkesboro, N.C., (Feb. 6, 2012) - FMF/KTM/RPM Racing's Josh Strang will race the Grand National Cross Country series this year with support from Dirt Racer/WP Racing USA. The 2010 GNCC champ, who suffered a broken leg at the end of the 2011 season, will use WP Racing suspension for WORCS, Endurocross and GNCC for the 2012 season. The WP team, headed by Bart Hayes, will tend to Strang's East Coast efforts, while RPM's Mike Hurlbert will handle the chores in the West.

"Although the WORCS series will be my primary focus, I'm excited to be riding some of the GNCC rounds this year with the help of Dirt Racer/WP Racing," said Strang. "Right now I'm still working on getting the strength back in my leg, but hopefully I will be good to go by the time the opener rolls around."

Hurlbert has received support from PG for several years and RPM's Maria Forsberg used RidePG products and WP Racing suspension services to win the GNCC Women's title in 2011. Other sponsors include KTM, Maxxis Tires, Motorex, SiDi Boots, Moose Racing, and DP Brakes.
