Pingree Will Return to Action at Morongo AMA Finale

Pingree Will Return to Action at Morongo AMA Finale Cabazon, CA - October 30, 2007 - Despite the fact that he's nursing two broken wrists, David Pingree is determined not to sit idly by and let a national championship title slip from his grasp. After he and Brandon Currie took either first or second through the first six rounds of the 2007 AMA Supermoto Lites series (with "Ping" leading the duel 4-2), the journalist/racer was the odds-on favorite to win the crown; that is, till he bageled in Redmond with his wrist injury. But now, with an expected "OK-to-race" from his doctor, Pingree has announced his intention to race every heat of Troy Lee's "Supermoto Mayhem at the Morongo" on Nov. 10th and 11th. "The long break in the series has given me time to heal. My plan is to go out and race for this championship," said Troy Lee Designs team rider Pingree. "I was in great shape before my crash, although Currie was right there with me in ev

Goat pulls out of Elsinore and plugs into Morongo

Lake Elsinore, CA - Despite canceling his 2007 Elsinore Grand Prix, event promoter Goat Breker still has every intention of attending a race that same weekend of November 9-11, by lending support to his longtime friend and fellow race promoter, Troy Lee. "I always gave 110% as a racer and I approached race promotion the same way," said Breker, a former pro motocross racer. "I've made sure the Elsinore GP was a fantastic experience for racers and fans, but it looks like my event will not happen this year. So I'm gonna do everything I can to help my friend Troy put on the best supermoto race the country has ever seen at Morongo." "I'm blessed to have the friendship and support of Goat Breker. You could fill a book with his racing and promoting knowledge," said Troy Lee, founder of Troy Lee Designs and promoter of Supermoto Mayhem at the Morongo. "I love the Elsinore GP and I'm sorry that it's not going to take place this year, but I

Redmond, OR- September 28-29 Wow! This last weekend was a rush! The dirt section was technical, leading into a fast straight away and a twisted pavement section. Many a wheel was bent and there were quite a few crashes. The weather decided to cooperate a bit more on Saturday than it did on Friday, so we didn’t completely freeze, but by the time the Main event came around Saturday evening, it was very chilly. Doni Wanat, rider and team manager, was in Redmond a bit early, helping to design and build the track. During the Promoter practice on Friday, Doni did very well, taking it easy and testing out the track. Unfortunately, Doni only got in one good practice on Saturday before he started having problems with his bike. He finished 5th in his heat race, landing him on the 3rd row in the starting grid for the final race. Due to engine problems with his main bike, he almost didn’t make it. With his mechanic’s frantic fixes, Doni was able to ride it in the main, taking it easy beca

Press Release September 22/23 - Stateline The weekend started out with RAIN RAIN RAIN… Somehow, Marche worked his magic and provided another successful weekend of racing in Primm , NV. We had some awesome results for the weekend and hope to keep it up for this next weekend’s AMA Supermoto championship race in Redmond, OR. The weekend started off with Carey Hart and Doni Wanat winning the team race. Carey’s weekend had its ups and downs. He took 3rd place in the 450 class but found no luck in the other races. Unfortunately, he broke a hub and sprocket in the 25+ VET class, lost air pressure in his rear tire in the 30+ VET, and fell in the last lap of the Open Pro main. The results just didn’t due justice to how well Carey was riding over the weekend. Team manager/racer, Doni Wanat, did very well in all of his races. Dealing with nasty weather that tried to ruin the fun-filled weekend and doing a great job with Carey in his first race of the weekend. He raced in four other events over th
