FORT COLLINS, CO, JUNE 21, 2015
The RoadRace Factory makes its return to MotoAmerica action this weekend in Utah. After taking some time off in order to regroup and do some critical testing, the team is returning to MotoAmerica action in Tooele, Utah, for round seven. With a renewed focus on becoming more cost effective, the team will be slightly streamlined, as the team’s transporter will remain at the team’s Race House in Fort Collins, Colorado.
This past weekend, the team completed a very successful test at their home track of High Plains Raceway, where Jake Gagne shattered the outright track record – a record that had stood for 10 years. After confirming the setup with chief engineer Scotty Jensen and the rest of the 32 Crew, team principle Danny Walker gave the go-ahead to get everything ready for Utah.
“I was nervous about us being able to return in time for Utah,” Walker, admitted, “but Scotty and his crew have been working nonstop since we returned from Road America to sort the issues out. Jake was very patient, but when we called him to Colorado, he couldn’t get back on the bike fast enough. I’m truly excited to get back to racing and get Gagne back on track with a solid machine under him.
“Now, personally, I’m not a huge fan of the track in Utah,” he added with a chuckle. “It’s been the scene of our worst performances. But I’m confident that we can turn this luck around, and I know Jake will give it everything he has in order to be back towards the front of the pack.”
The RoadRace Factory team would like to recognize and thank those who have continued to support them throughout this trying time. First and foremost is Broaster Chicken: Our title sponsor has stayed with us throughout this experience, and without their increased support, we wouldn’t be going back to the MotoAmerica Series. They remain our title sponsor and have doubled down on their commitment to the team and to Jake Gagne. They have committed all available resources to ensuring that Jake has the best bike possible to continue his MotoAmerica Superbike season.
Along with Broaster Chicken, our other premier sponsors have all pitched in so that will can continue. Specifically, we’d like to thank Yamaha USA, Motul, Arrow Exhausts and Bazzaz. We wouldn’t be headed to Utah without their continued support.
