secures sponsorship to compete at Red Bull Indy GP XR1200 race w/Shawn Higbee riding

Milwaukee, Wi - The motorcycle racing community is excited with the news that there will be 2 AMA Pro Vance and Hines XR1200 races at the Red Bull Indianapolis Moto GP event on August 27th and 28th. As a current front running participant in the AMA Pro Racing Vance and Hines XR1200 series  intends to participate in this event with AMA pro rider Shawn Higbee at the controls. Team Principal Wes Orloff: ‘We are extremely excited about the opportunity to race in front of a world audience at the Red Bull Indianapolis GP. As this was a late addition to the AMA Pro Vance and Hines XR1200 series schedule, we had not budgeted for the event, but we have had some great sponsors and grass roots support step up to help out. We are lucky enough to be teaming with Indianapolis Southside Harley-Davidson, a 4 generation family owned dealership’. The dealership was started in 1947 in Indianapolis by H-D factory engineer George Schulteti, a fact not lost on Orloff, himself an engineer for Harley-Davidson. ‘It is great to be working with the family owned dealership with such a long history with the Harley-Davidson brand. I feel a personal connection and think our partnership is a great fit. It is very cool to be able to represent Indianapolis Southside H-D at the Red Bull Indy GP’.

Individual enthusiast sponsorship for the team came from a surprising source: A Buell owners internet forum. Orloff: ‘A big thanks goes out to the enthusiasts at  who have helped our cause. Their support has been fantastic. Obviously Shawn has a lot of Buell fans out there that want to see him do well. They have helped out previously on Buell Daytona 200 efforts and the Roadracing World Action Fund, so its great to be able to represent these enthusiasts with a history of supporting racing.’    

Higbee’s comments: I am excited to be racing the Indianapolis Southside Harley-Davidson XR1200 at the Red Bull Indianapolis GP. I think the racing will be close and it will be awesome to be in that pack of Harley’s running down the front stretch for the first time.
