CORONA, Calif., (July 17, 2008) – Officials at Unbound Energy made a
formal announcement today at its SoCal headquarters, announcing that
they’ve reached a sponsorship agreement with the Atomic/MDK motocross
team, led by veteran racer Paul Carpenter and featuring his cousin,
rookie Jack Carpenter. The team will now be known as Atomic/MDK/
Unbound for the remaining AMA MX National schedule, as well as the
2009 AMA Supercross season.
“We’re pumped to have Unbound Energy on board with the Atomic/MDK/
Unbound program for this summer and the 2009 supercross season,” said
Paul Carpenter. “We got this deal going at Glen Helen and since then
the Unbound product – Original, Lo-Carb and Energy + Juice – have been
a popular item in the pits at our rig. Unbound sets the standard with
its industrial strength energy formula and are getting a pretty big
following at the Nationals and at supercross. We’re definitely looking
forward to representing with them.”
This past weekend pay some big dividends for the Unbound Atomic/MDK
program as Paul Carpenter placed 10th overall at Budds Creek, Md.,
going 14-9 in his first race back since a second moto injury at Glen
Helen. And Jack Carpenter would follow with his best MX National
finish EVER, bringing it home in the top 20 with an impressive 16th
place finish in the second moto, his first time racing at Budds.
“Paul Carpenter is an upstart racer/team manager on the MX and
supercross tours and has proven he can handle such a major position in
the industry,” said Unbound’s Steve Jugan. “Unbound Energy relates
well to a guy who works hard and gets results. A guy, who along with
his cousin, Jack, we feel will represent the Unbound Energy product
“Unbound Energy is looking forward to a successful MX season, as well
as a solid supercross season from the Atomic/MDK/Unbound Energy team!”
This weekend the New York-based team return to their roots in central
upstate New York with the running of the Unadilla National. In
preparation the Carpenters (no relation the singing duo) have been
racing one of their old haunts, the Broome-Tioga MX Sports Center in
Binghamton, former home of the Broome-Tioga pro MX National.
“Yeah, first time I’ve ridden here since the last National in ’06,”
said Paul Carpenter. “Felt good to get out and ride on some familiar
dirt. Unadilla should be the same way, although I heard they changed
the track around a bunch.”
Next up for the Atomic/MDK/Unbound Energy team is this Sunday’s
running of the Unadilla Outdoor National (New Berlin, N.Y.), round
eight of the 2008 AMA Toyota Motocross Championship.
