HOUSTON (January 15, 2008) — The new Shea Supermoto Racing Team is pleased to announce that DNA Energy Drink has signed on as the title sponsor of its AMA Supermoto Lites effort. The team consists of team owner/rider Tim Shea, Thomas Bordelon, and Mike Ingle. Recently, it also selected Moto Public Relations (MotoPR) as its public relations and marketing agency.
“We are very excited about the upcoming 2008 season, said Tim Shea, owner and team rider. Everything is coming together for our team. Thanks to Darren and Geoff at DNA Energy Drink for their major support, and also a big thanks to Bryan Peckinpaugh of MotoPR. His firm has been working non-stop to help build our team.
The three team riders take their motocross talents to the AMA Supermoto Series. Shea won his class at the 2007 White Brothers Amateur Vet World Championships in Texas. Bordelon raced the Texas round of the AMA Supermoto Series last year as a Pro Am with lap times on par with the AMA Supermoto premier class. Ingle raced the infamous Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, finishing sixth in the 450cc motorcycle class in 2007. The team’s goal is to have all three riders in the top ten in the Lites class this season. It has purchased a 40-foot transporter that provides exposure for sponsors and will serve as team headquarters during the race weekends.
Partnering with DNA Energy Drink, the Houston, Texas-based Shea Supermoto Racing will have fan promotions at every round leading up to a final race drawing that includes a pit bike outfitted with team graphics as the grand prize. More information on the team can be found at www.sheasupermoto.com.
