"Wayne Rainey has said we need to start fresh and we could not agree more," said Yoshimura R&D Director of Sales Dave Waugh. "The question is: Are we all going to sit on the sidelines and see what happens? Yoshimura R&D manufactures its products in America, races in America and we are here to support MotoAmerica. Yoshimura R&D has participated in road racing for decades and racing is a core component of our DNA. The new role we play in support of this series is a first for us and we encourage fans and industry to do the same: Be part of the action."
