The Professional Journey (TPJ) Racing Team in partnership with FLY Racing, Karcher, Lucas Oil and a multitude of other supporting sponsors is proud to announce their Team lineup for the 2020 Monster Energy/AMA Supercross season.
Team Owners, Ted and Kathy Parks have dedicated their lives to “helping the underdogs get to the big leagues”, and the upcoming 2020 season(s) will be no different. There is no off season when your life revolves around that motto; each minute is spent trying to secure new sponsors, perfecting the roster and ensuring each rider has the tools needed to succeed not only on race day but every day.
Returning to competition in the 450SX class are three TPJ veterans who proved in the 2019 season that they have the determination, passion and drive to compete with the best in the most elite class in the world. Jimmy Weeks #65, Dylan Merriam #70 and Austin Politelli #92 are anxious to put another season under their belts and have a common goal of making every Main Event.
In the 250SX class, the team will consist of two West Coast and two East Coast riders. Ready to go for the first gate drop on January 4th in Anaheim, CA are Corbin Hayes #259 and Blaine Silveira #446. East Coast riders Lane Shaw #186 and Kevin Moranz #77 will have to wait until February 15th in Tampa, FL for their chance at the checkered flags. Additionally, Taiki Koga from Japan will join the TPJ Racing Team as a transport rider for the 250SX West Coast rounds.
“We can’t wait to bring our A-Game to A1! Each new year is another opportunity for Team TPJ and our Athletes to show that we can compete with the best in the World, and we fully expect 2020 to be the same. Our sponsors ultimately help to make this all possible, and for that, we can’t thank them enough”. – Ted Parks, Team Owner
The entire team is looking forward to the upcoming season, but without dedicated sponsors we wouldn’t be able to assist riders in making their Professional Racing dreams come true, and for those individuals/companies we are beyond thankful.
