MENTOR, Ohio (January 4, 2018) – Wiseco Performance Products, the worldwide leader in manufacturing high
performance, forged and billet pistons for the powersports, snowmobile, personal watercraft, outboard marine
and automotive markets will continue to energize its presence in the Monster Energy Supercross and Lucas Oil
Pro Motocross spaces following an agreement with the Factory Connection-owned GEICO Honda team.
Both groups will work cooperatively on exclusive research and development services as the team continues to
strengthen its engine program and build horsepower.
"We're fortunate to be working with Wiseco this year," said Dan Betley, Team Manager for GEICO Honda. "That
partnership has been helping expedite some pistons for us and helping with the development as we progress
trying to increase our horsepower. The engine is going to continue to evolve throughout the entire year. At this
stage in development, it's going to be a progression throughout the year to keep improving the engine settings
and making the riders happy. I'm really happy with where we're all at. We'll definitely be in contention for
podiums come A1."
GEICO Honda will feature a five-rider lineup for the 2018 season with Christian Craig and Chase Sexton
handling the riding chores for the Western Regional 250 SX Class events. Jeremy Martin, R.J. Hampshire and
Cameron McAdoo will represent the team at the Eastern Regional 250 SX Class races.
"Wiseco is pleased to further our two-wheel support and expand our involvement in the professional space by
aligning our organization with GEICO Honda," offered Mark Gearhart, Wiseco's Senior Manager, Content
Marketing. "GEICO Honda is one of the most visible and successful teams in the 250 Paddock. We're proud to
sponsor those efforts in both the team's Supercross and Pro Motocross programs beginning with this
weekend's Anaheim opener."
