Holigan Racing¿s Team Samsung is one of the most recognized new teams in the sport, due in large part to their Saturday morning reality-based TV show on Spike TV.

In addition, both the CR and CRF machines will become a major component in the TV show ¿The Reality of Speed¿ each week. The team boasts a stellar line-up for the 2005 race season including Troy Adams, Michael Blose, Josh Summey and Josh Woods all of which will be podium contenders.
¿Today we start a new chapter in the Team Samsung story with this announcement,” said Team Samsung owner, Michael Holigan. “The opportunity to work with American Honda, Samsung and our industry sponsors makes this an ideal opportunity for us. For me personally, it means a great deal for Team Samsung and Holigan Racing to be associated with Honda. Their heritage in Motorsports is unparalleled. Given their history and commitment to racing, to partner with Honda is a great honor.”
