"It's really a win win for all of us" mentioned BTO Sports President Vince Arimitsu. He continued with "It feel 's really good lending a helping hand to such a nice group of kids progressing their racing careers. BTO's Amateur Program is a continuous effort to expand the brand and image throughout the motocross community in a positive way, while simultaneously working for our riders. The future goal is to effectively develop this program into a farm team meshing closely with a lites class deal on the BTO Suzuki Motocross team. With the company continuing to expand, advancing into the Amateur circuit was the next move we needed to make. I feel we have a solid group of talented riders and we're all excited for the 2012 season."
BTO Sports has already seen success with the team throughout the Spring Nationals. Opening at Freestone, Colby Halpain finished 3rd in the 85cc 9-11 mod class, Cody Eaton took 2nd in the 85cc 9-13 Open class.
