Jake Lewis at Indy!

Earl's Racing/American Honda/SportBike Track Time sponsored Jake Lewis will be riding in the double header Moriwaki 250 Challenge Powered by Honda at the Indy MotoGP. Jake, who is one of the few riders to choose the 600RR in WERA competition, will be riding his Veloce Racing MD250 in the GP support classes.
So for all yopu diehard CBR fans, Jake should give you somebody to cheer for as he is one of the favorites to win. Cya there! Tdub


Torrance, CA: American Honda announces today that during the 2010 Red Bull Indianapolis GP, August 27 to 29, a special youth class has been added for racers riding the Moriwaki MD250H powered by Honda. This event, part of the United States Grand Prix Racers Union (USGPRU) race schedule, will allow up-and-coming road racers aged 12-16 to compete at the world-famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway. This Indy addition will feature a double-header race format with two points-paying races added to the 2010 USGPRU schedule.
In a parallel to the World Grand Prix Moto2 class, which uses a spec-built Honda engine based on the CBR600RR powerplant, the Moriwaki MD250H incorporates a Honda-built single-cylinder four-stroke engine sourced from the CRF250X. The USGPRU¹s MD250H class provides an excellent means for young racers to gain first-hand exposure to grand prix-style racing.
“American Honda’s support of this class through purpose-built machinery and excellent contingency rewards—$180,000 on the season—represents direct efforts to support and expand road racing at the grass-roots level,” said Keith Dowdle, Assistant Manager, HRCA. “The addition of this new round of MD250H racing to the USGPRU schedule means that these young racers will now have the opportunity to compete at one of the most storied tracks in the United States, during one of the most prestigious motorcycle racing events in the nation and before a huge crowd—quite an adventure for these young competitors! All of which makes the 2010 Red Bull Indianapolis GP an even more compelling race date than ever before.” “We are absolutely thrilled to have been selected to join the MotoGP community at Indianapolis for this year's event,” said USGPRU Chief Steward, Stewart Aitken-Cade. “It’s a tremendous opportunity for our young racers to get out there on the world stage and give everyone a glimpse at what great young talent America has coming up through the ranks. We are equally pleased to be able to showcase these racers aboard the Moriwaki MD250H powered by Honda. Over the past two years, this bike has been a solid platform that has reliably provided some of the closest and most exciting races every weekend they race. Hopefully the MotoGP fans will enjoy the show the USGPRU brings to Indy.”

I read this on the STT forum and of course, congratulations to Jake from Peggy and I. I'll be sure and tell Peggy that her tutoring of Jake at Tally last November during the STT track day is finally paying off for him. She'll be proud. On a sad note.........we won't be there this year to see Jake or the races. Good luck and you know that we're rooting for him!
