OMS Sports Signs Supercross Star Andrew Short rider puts his trust in OMS Sports to help guide career

ANAHEIM, Calif., (March 15, 2004) — OMS Sports announced today that it has signed team rider Andrew Short to its stable of premier SX/MX racers.

“This is a good step for me at this point in my career, said Short. “OMS Sports gives me a good sense of direction while allowing me to completely focus on my racing.

Short, the winner of the ’03 Las Vegas 125 Shoot-Out, is considered by many to be one of the top up-and-coming racers in the 250 class – having the potential of being a “can’t miss factory rider in the years to come. Level-headed and powerfully built, Short burst onto the forefront of the supercross scene in 2001 and hasn’t looked back. A former Loretta Lynn’s champion (125 A Pro Sport Div., 2001), Short grew up racing in Colorado and proved he has the potential to excel at the Outdoor Nationals as well, finishing fourth at Southwick last summer.

More recently, Short has shown he’s a top candidate to make the transfer from the 125 to 250 class when he tied his personal best THQ/AMA Supercross Series finish with a sixth place at St. Louis last Saturday night. Note: Short’s previous best 250 finish was a sixth at Indianapolis in 2003. He finished third in the second round of the THQ World Supercross GP in Arnhem, Holland this past December.

“We’re thrilled to have Andrew join the OMS Sports team, said OMS Sports General Manager Sharon Richards. “Andrew comes from a great family and has his feet planted firmly on the ground. He’s got a winning attitude and OMS Sports is certainly excited not only with his potential to succeed in this sport, but also with his wholesome, down-to-earth attitude. We look forward to a long-lasting relationship with Andrew.
