Richmond, Calif. - April 25, 2014 - LeoVince USA Specialized Products Distribution has announced that it will be supporting the new three-round Superbike Shootout, with vending at all three events. The Superbike Shootout kicks off this weekend, April 26-27, at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California.

LeoVince USA will set up its SpeedMob display, and racers and fans alike can take advantage of the trackside vending. In addition, orders placed at the track will be eligible for a special event discount.

Racer necessities like the Dion Device brake lever protector, Vortex Racing sprockets and chains, and BMC air filters will be available. Fans will also be able to check out the latest Airoh Aviator 2.1 offroad helmets.

LeoVince USA’s Race and Sales Manager David Christensen will be racing, as well, riding a SpeedMob Yamaha YZF-R6 equipped with many of the brands and components available through the SpeedMob racer support program.

“More than anything, we wanted to support John Ulrich and his initiative to create a professional series of races west of the Mississippi. The Superbike Shootout looks to be a lot of fun at tracks that we consider to be more or less in our backyard,” says Tim Calhoun, President and CEO of LeoVince USA Specialized Products Distribution. “After more than a decade of supporting literally thousands of riders and racers, we decided it was time to have some of our own fun. I spoke with my National Race Manager David Christensen to gauge his interest, and he immediately was 100 percent in. With help from some of our partners and friends, we have put together a quick little R6 and will be at the events to support all of the racers with great products like the Dion Device.”

In addition to vending and racing, LeoVince USA will also have a number of their sponsored SpeedMob racers in the Pro Superbike and Pro Sportbike races. Graves Yamaha’s Josh Hayes and Cameron Beaubier will be competing on their Yamaha YZF-R1s, which are both outfitted with the Dion Device.

Sebastiao Ferreira, who usually races a 600cc motorcycle for DMS Racing, will be making his big-bore debut in round one at Fontana. Ferreira will be riding a Kawasaki ZX-10 equipped with a LeoVince exhaust and carbon fiber components.

Garrett Willis is expected to perform well on his Kawasaki ZX-6R, which also has a LeoVince exhaust in addition to a Dion Device and Vortex high-performance parts.

Following round one at Fontana, the Superbike Shootout continues from May 3-4 at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, California. The event culminates at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, the weekend of May 24-25.
