¿We¿re very excited to be working with BP and AM/PM in their release of their new beverage, Unbound Energy,¿ said team owner Mark Kvamme. ¿Nick Wey introduced us to the people at Unbound through Crown Management, and that really shows the teamwork that we have with our team. Going to the races is definitely a team effort, and this is a great example of that. We look forward to demonstrating our ability to launch a great product like Unbound Energy into the marketplace.¿
Unbound is similarly excited about the opportunity to jump head-first into the world of motocross and supercross.
¿Our goal is to get involved with action sports, and we consider supercross and motocross to be the pinnacle of action sports,¿ says Jon Bratta, development manager for Unbound Energy. ¿With MDK and Nick Wey, we saw an opportunity out there. We have a lot of respect for Nick Wey and we believe he¿s a winner. We hope to help him, and the entire MDK Motorsports team, achieve that goal.¿
