Lloyd Brothers Motorsports Launches Fund Raising Effort For Flat Track Portion Of Roadracing World Action Fund

Lloyd Brothers Motorsports, Inc. Announces 2011 Flat Track Air Fence Fund Raiser

Lloyd Brothers Motorsports, Inc. with support from Foremost Insurance Company, Arai Helmets, AMA Pro Racing and TeamHurtByAccident.com is pleased to announce participation in a very exciting fund raiser for the Flat Track portion of the Roadracing World Action Fund. The Lloyd Brothers Motorsports team will be volunteering efforts to raise money for the Roadracing World Action Fund, a non-profit organization under 501(c)3 which promotes motorcycle racing safety by encouraging and facilitating the use of soft air barriers at motorcycle racing events.

First place prize is a 2009 Buell Ulysses XB12XP - AMA Pro Racing Pace Motorcycle with under 210 original miles donated by AMA Pro Racing. The motorcycle will be transported, displayed and have tickets sold by Lloyd Brothers Motorsports, Inc. at each of the half-mile and mile Grand National Flat Track races.

The fund raiser has a second place prize of a new Arai helmet. "Everyone at Arai Helmets is proud to be able to donate to this fund raiser to raise money for the air fence that is used at flat track races. Arai Helmets has a long history of supporting the Grand National Flat Track Series by supplying the majority of the racers with our products and contingency to keep them as safe as possible" said Bruce Porter, Director of Marketing and Professional Motorsports Promotion for Arai Helmets.

"AMA Pro Racing is committed to growth of flat track and safety is a major component of that process. We are pleased the Lloyd Brothers team is taking the initiative in organizing this fund raiser to help repair existing air fence and purchase new air fence," commented Dan Johnsen, Director of Flat Track at AMA Pro Racing.

"We are excited to help raise funds for flat track air fence" stated Lloyd Brothers Motorsports co-owner David Lloyd. "Air fence is invaluable to the safety of racers. We are really hoping that the flat track community will rally around this cause so that we can expand the amount of air fence available for the safety of our racers."

"We are really excited about this fund raiser," says TeamHurtByAccident's C.J. Czaia. "One of the main reasons that really attracted us to join forces with Lloyd Brothers Motorsports is the fact that they are coordinating a national season-long fund raiser in support of the Roadracing World Action Fund. Safety is a prime concern in motorcycle racing and utilizing Air Fence is a major component in making racing safer."

Tickets will be sold at each event for $20.00 each and the winners will be drawn and announced in front of the grandstands at the final race of the season. Winners don't need to be present at the drawing; they will be notified after their ticket is drawn. A website will be established with a link at www.roadracingworld.com listing each ticket purchaser and their ticket number.

"Foremost Insurance Company is proud to support the efforts of Lloyd Brothers Motorsports. Foremost Insurance and Lloyd Brothers Motorsports share common interests in not only striving to be the best but also to help create the safest environment possible for our participants and clients" said Randy Slotten, of Foremost Insurance Company.

Lloyd Brothers Motorsports, Inc. announces 2011 Team and Sponsors

Lloyd Brothers Motorsports, Inc. (LBM) is proud to announce the continuation of our AMA Grand National Flat Track program for 2011.

The 2010 racing season was extremely successful for Lloyd Brothers Motorsports. Highlights include 2000 Grand National Champion Joe Kopp winning the Yavapai Mile in Arizona in his very first race aboard the LBM Ducati-powered flat tracker. This was Ducati's first win in the over 100 year old series and the win broke a 29 year win streak shared by specific-built factory flat track Honda and Harley-Davidson engines.

In addition to Kopp's historic win, LBM was privileged to host AMA Pro Racing Superbike racer Larry Pegram to race at the Springfield and Indy Miles and Ducati Factory Moto-GP star Nicky Hayden for exhibition laps at the Indy Mile in front of the very appreciative capacity crowd.

At the season's end, Joe Kopp announced his retirement from full-time flat track competition. Kopp's recommendation for a potential new rider for the team was fellow Washington State racer, Brad Baker. "Brad is 18 years old and the 2009 AMA Pro-Singles champion. I have watched this kid for a long time and he is the real deal. He's a hard-worker, has loads of talent, is very appreciative and has the potential to move to the front very quickly with a solid team behind him" said Joe Kopp.

"With Joe's retirement, we found ourselves in a position to secure a rider that fits into the long-term growth plan of our team, our sponsors and AMA Pro Racing. We approached Brad Baker and we are very happy that he accepted our invitation to join the team" stated team co-owner David Lloyd.

"I have watched a lot of fast young men coming up into the expert ranks over the last 23 years" continued team co-owner Michael Lloyd. "It takes a combination of talent, physical ability, desire, a strong mind set, extreme confidence, a strong work ethic and a personality that fits well with a solid team to make it to the front as an Expert. Brad possesses all of these assets. Dave Gamble, Kevin Atherton, David Lloyd and I are confident that Brad's rookie season will be very successful."

Lloyd Brothers Motorsports, Inc. is proud to welcome 2011 financial sponsors TeamHurtByAccident.com and CJ Czaia, ENI USA (formerly American Agip), Motion Pro, Foremost Insurance Company, and Daniel Kalal.
