Josh Demuth Leads Babbitts Kawasaki Team Into Toyota AMA Regional Arenacross Action At Grand Rapids’ Van Andel Arena

Former AMA National Arenacross champion joined by Plotts & Ripple

AURORA, Ill., (Jan. 26, 2006) ¿ Former Toyota AMA National Arenacross Series champion Josh Demuth and Team Babbitts Enxus Kawasaki ¿ including Damian Plotts and Brad Ripple ¿ have confirmed that they will race in the Grand Rapids event of the 2006 Toyota AMA Regional Arenacross at Van Andel Arena on Jan. 27-28.

“The building is great in Grand Rapids, great crowd ¿ I’m sure it’ll be a sell out both nights,” said Babbitts Enxus Kawasaki team manager Denny Bartz. “They do a good job keeping the dirt covered so it’s in good shape to race during the winter months up in Michigan. We’re looking forward to having a good time up there.”

Bartz pointed out that one of the reasons the Babbitts Enxus Kawasaki team is coming up to compete in Toyota AMA Regional Arenacross is that Babbitts Kawasaki is located about 30 miles away in Muskegon, Mich.

“We also have an autograph session, so it’ll be good for the dealership,” he added.

Babbitts Kawasaki is located on 3712 Airline Road in Muskegon, Mich. For more information ¿ including directions to the dealership ¿ check out
