Greetings,

Race Tech riders are having another great year in local, regional, national, and international competition! We are really proud of the riders and teams that have chosen to race with us.

Check out some of the latest.................

At the World Superbike event at Miller Motorsports Park David finished second in the Utah SBA/Larry H. Miller Superbike Challenge.

The Four Feathers Racing/Toyota Trucks team recently earned a third place superpole with team rider Bobby Fong.

In Canada, Acceleration Racings Clint McBain and Chad Matechuk stirred up the pits at the first round of the Canadian Series when they showed up with new Race Tech suspension on the privateer Suzuki dealer GSXR's. Using the all-new G3-S Custom Series Shocks and 25mm Cartridge Kits, McBain finished a close fourth in the superbike class.

Meanwhile, Matechuk claimed the top spot on the podium box when he out dueled his closest competitor on the last lap to take victory in the 600 amateur class. In the process of winning the race he set a new track record! At round 2, Matechuck took pole position, placed second and now has a hold of the championship points!

Regional Racers Shannon Moham, Arnold Hastings, and Chad Hinton have all won races in 2009 using Race Tech's 25mm cartridge Kit and G3-S shocks. Each is leading their respected championships. Moham has already tasted victory 3 times at the MRA race from Motorsports Park Double header weekend May 23-25. While Hinton leads the WERA Mid-Atlantic D Superbike championship and he recently won at Summit Point. Hastings currently leads the CCS Combined Experts Overall Points.

Race Tech's Weston Orloff took the 2008 AHRMA Battle of the Twins Formula 2 championship aboard his Buell 1125R.

By the way, at the time of this newsletter Race Tech riders have set 6 track records since the introduction of the G3-S Shock at Daytona just 3 1/2 months ago! Way to go guys and way to go Lenny Albin our Road Race Track Tuning Specialist.
