More good news for Ben Young

Indiana-based Four Feathers Racing’s team principal Scotty Van Hawk has signed on to mentor and provide race strategy support to BYR / Fogi Racing’s development rider Ben Young for his debut at America’s most historic motorcycle event, the Daytona 200. Young, aboard his Tim Hortons-Sudbury/Yamaha R6 will take to the legendary Daytona International Speedway on March 15-17th 2012.

Toyota/Lucas Oil backed Four Feathers Racing (4FR) has a long history at the historic venue contesting their first Daytona 200 in 1997. In the past fifteen years 4FR has experienced nearly all that can happen on the high banks earning many respectable finishes through hard work and persistence.

Young, who resides in Thornbury Ontario Canada, will be shown the ropes of the Daytona 200 event by 4FR’s owner and founder Scotty Van Hawk.  Van Hawk is no stranger to the Daytona circuit as he has raced there numerous times himself and has assisted other notable riders over the years such as 2007 Daytona 200 winner Steve Rapp and 2012 World SuperSport rookie Josh Day.

Van Hawk met the eighteen year old Scottish/Canadian rider last year at Mid Ohio and was able to spend some time with him and his family at the AMA RRGC.  Mutual friend and sponsor, Geoff Maloney of GP Tech was instrumental in facilitating the relationship.

Since then Fogi Racing’s Team Manager Scott Young and Van Hawk have kept in touch and the idea of Toyota/Lucas Oil backed 4FR assisting Young at Daytona and hopefully beyond became evident as both 4FR and Fogi Racing Development Team are striving to achieve the same goals; to cultivate future champions.

"We like to surround ourselves with good people and the Youngs are just that, a family team with ethics and morals. They run a good program and provide quality representation to their team partners.” said Van Hawk. “We are excited to work with Ben and we know it will be a potent partnership." Van Hawk concluded.

Fogi Racing’s team manager, Scott Young is delighted with the joint venture. He stated: “4FR and Van Hawk’s support will be a great asset for Ben to compete in the Daytona 200.  It will also give him an advantage at the opening round and will put him in good stead for the remainder of the season.”  Young added, “We are looking forward to working with Scotty and 4FR and becoming long-time partners in our sport.”
