L&Mc Racing Team to Use Bel-Ray Lubricants During 2013 Supercross and Motocross Seasons
Industry Veterans Jeremy McGrath and Larry Brooks Join Forces
to Support Efforts of Andrew Short
FARMINGDALE, N.J. (January 4, 2013) ― Bel-Ray announces an agreement with L&Mc Racing Team and its racer Andrew Short to use the company’s premium powersports lubricants during the 2013 Supercross and Motocross racing seasons. In addition, L&Mc Racing Team co-owner and seven-time Supercross champion Jeremy McGrath will use Bel-Ray lubricants in his personal machines.
The agreement represents the continuation of a relationship that began in 2012, when Bel-Ray supported the team in the AMA Outdoor Motocross Series. In that contest, team racer Andrew Short finished fourth overall in the standings at the end of the 12-race series.
"Bel-Ray was one of the first oils that I used when I began racing," said McGrath. "It gives me comfort to be associated with Bel-Ray again, knowing their premium oil and lubricants will be used inside and outside of not only our race team’s factory Hondas, but my personal motorcycles, as well."
Team co-owner Larry Brooks also spoke about the renewed agreement. “We are very excited for 2013. The Bel- Ray Company and their products are first class and we are proud to be part of the Bel-Ray team,” Brooks said.
Andrew Short prepares for competition relying on Bel-Ray products to deliver the performance he needs to win.
The Bel-Ray products to be used by L&Mc Racing and McGrath to keep their machine engine components operating at maximum performance levels and with less wear include:
Friction Modified Thumper Racing 4T Engine Oil – A premium quality, 4-stroke racing oil formulated specifically for motorcycles that use separate engines and transmissions. Friction modifiers reduce engine temperature, increase horsepower and extend engine life.
Thumper Gear Saver Transmission Oil – This 4-stroke transmission oil was designed specifically for use in wet clutch vehicles with separate engines and transmissions. It employs a multi-viscosity formula that provides free flow for enhanced clutch cooling and positive engagement for superior starts and longer clutch life.
Blue Tac Chain Lube – The ultimate chain lubricant for all street, off-road and racing motorcycle chain applications, including 'O', 'X' and ‘Z’ ring units. Uniquely designed to resist fling-off even in high speed applications while providing outstanding chain and sprocket life by reducing wear.
"Bel-Ray is very pleased to continue supporting the L&Mc Racing Team with all of their machines lubrication needs," said Jennifer Liquori, chief operating officer of Bel-Ray. "Our company’s powersports lubricants have been proven to perform under the high stresses of professional competition. We are proud to help the L&Mc achieve their goals this racing season."
The team will make its 2013 Supercross debut on January 5th at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, CA. The first Motocross season race will be May 18th at the Hangtown Motocross Classic in Sacramento, CA.
