SALT LAKE CITY, UT (January 6, 2011) The Rockwell crew is geared up once again for another assault on the 2011 Monster Energy Supercross series. With a new semi wrap, new sponsors, and a few new riders, Rockwell Time/Fire Police MX is looking forward to gate dropping this Saturday night at Angels Stadium. Returning this year are Rockwell Team riders Landen Powell and Parker Eckman. Both riders will be contesting the West Coast Lites series where they plan on putting in some solid finishes for the Rockwell team. In addition to Powell and Eckman, Rockwell is pleased to welcome 450 pilot Sean Borkenhagen. Coming off a great off-season including a win at the inaugural Hart & Huntington Privateer SX Challenge, Sean is looking to do some damage against the insanely stacked 450 field. All three riders are ready to go and will be on hand this weekend as the series kicks off. Team rider Jason Potter was looking forward to lining up at A1 however an untimely wrist injury will see him sit out the first of the series. Cole Siebler is also on board this season and will represent Rockwell in Seattle, Salt Lake, and Vegas after he finishes up the AMA Arenacross series.
"I am very excited about the 2011 season. We have a solid lineup of riders who are hungry for some great results. Our guys have been working their butts off during the off-season for A1 and I know that they are 100% ready to go. We just finished up our new graphics with Ryno Designs and our hauler has a fresh wrap…it's time to race!" says Casey Bywater, Team Manager.
Along with new riders, Rockwell would also like to announce their new partnership with Edge Products and MBRP exhaust. Both companies have stepped up and will be supporting the Rockwell/Fire Police MX team throughout the Supercross season and beyond. Founded in 1999, Edge Products has become the premier name for aftermarket performance electronics. Initially, the company was built on its efforts to produce performance electronics for diesel-powered trucks. Over the years, however, Edge has expanded its offerings to include cutting-edge products for the gas, truck, and Jeep markets. While Edge has you dialed with performance chips, MBRP offers a full line of exhausts. Marshalling over ten decades of manufacturing and marketing expertise between them, the MBRP design team has developed a line of performance diesel exhaust products that has made the rest of the industry take notice, and rush to catch up.
If you are planning on hitting any of Supercross rounds, be sure to stop by the Rockwell rig, check out our lineup of timepieces, and hang with our crew. As always, Rockwell would like to thank its team sponsors for their generous support: Fire Police MX, Edge Products, MBRP, ZAGG, XInsurance, Ryno Designs, ARA, Dayt Construction, Tire Pros, Garner D. Jensen Insurance, Dus, Rico Belts, Idol, Shield 4, Kingdom Crown Clothing, J Michael, Game Gear, Fight Legion, Braun Entertainment, RK Chains, Fly Racing, Utah Sports Commission, and Platinum Brigade.
