Tim Hortons-Sudbury Backed Ben Young is Ready To Roll

After months of preparation, BYR/Fogi Racing’s Ben Young is ready to roll up the rims of his Tim Hortons-Sudbury/Yamaha R6 to this coming weekend’s Daytona 200 starting grid.

The Daytona 200, known as "THE WORLD'S GREATEST MOTORCYCLE RACE", being held at the legendary Daytona International Speedway - March 17th 2012, kicks off the AMA Pro Road Racing season with a 200-mile battle on Daytona's 3.51-mile road course with top motorcycle racers from the US and around the world.

In the weeks leading up to the Daytona 200, Fogi Racing’s crew members painstakingly went over both of Young’s Tim Hortons-Sudbury/Yamaha R6  ‘A’ and ‘B’ bikes which were also treated to freshly painted and decaled Armour Bodies bodywork, courtesy of the team’s latest sponsor, The Graphix Factory.

As if the previous weeks weren’t busy enough, the young Scottish-Canadian pilot promoted the team and its partners’ participation in this world-class event through local and international media.

The Thornbury Ontario based racer will have an all-star team supporting him in the pits at the renowned Daytona International Speedway. Heading up the pit crew will be Team Manager and former British Superstock competitor Scott Young, Four Feathers Racing’s team principal and AMA racer Scotty Van Hawk, Team Sponsor and former Canadian Superbike racer Gilles Bolduc as well as Roland Riedmann, a former AMA GP250 rider.

Scott Young was asked about the upcoming event and season, “As a team, BYR/Fogi Racing we are very excited about competing in the AMA Pro GoPro Daytona Sportbike Championship this season.  It’s a big step for Ben but it is a vital step in the direction of his development.  Anything can happen at Daytona, it’s going to be interesting!”

For tickets to the Daytona 200 please visit www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or by calling 1-800-PITSHOP.  Coverage of the Daytona 200 will be broadcast on SPEED on Saturday March 17th, staring at 2:30pm EST. Please refer to your local TV listings.  Live Timing can be accessed through the team’s website www.fogi.us , click on the AMA Live Timing icon.
