NESBA,Twisted Core, LeoVince and G.I.G. team up with MOB Racing for the 2013 AMA Pro Racing season!

Robert Blanford, NESBA president, likes what he saw in MOB Racing's first professional racing season, so much so that after a short meeting NESBA has agreed to partner up with our team for the 2013 racing season!

NESBA is the largest single sportbike track day organization in the country, with close to 200 track days this year offering more riding opportunities at more venues throughout the Northeast, Mid Atlantic, Southeast and Deep South than any other club. This pairing will allow MOB Racing's riders more track time than ever before on multiple AMA tracks like Barber, NJMP, NOLA, Mid- Ohio, Road Atlanta, Road America and more! That, combined with the clubs long history and support from Yamaha helps us improve our R6 program and move it closer to the podium where we expect to be this season as we continue to complete our program for this season.

"Excited is an understatement! When an organization like NESBA notices a new team like MOB Racing, it must mean we're doing something right...their no small potatoes! Robert seemed as excited as we are with the idea of working together to promote both organizations in a positive and enthusiastic fashion. We both LOVE the sport, both on and off the track, that's obvious, but more importantly we want new fans and riders of all abilities and disciplines to be able to come out to a trackday or race event and be able to connect and interact with us in a manner that will have them leaving the event feeling appreciated. Because without the fans, riders, racers and organizations like NESBA that promote this incredible sport we'd be in trouble for sure!" says MOB Racing owner Dennis Espinosa.

Twisted Core has also signed up to support MOB Racing, check their products out at and "Like" them on their Facebook page: . When seen first hand, Twisted Core's base layer apparel line screams "Why doesn't everyone do it this way?!". A lot of thought went into the ergonomic design of their products...simple things like wider shoulder and upper back area extending the riders range of motion, and an elongated tail on the shirts, ideas that just make sense. Check them out and support the companies that support the sport!

All this would not have been possible without Get in Gear partnering up with MOB Racing from the start! Tony's dedication and knowledge of how to "sweet talk" the XR1200's helped put our program on the map.
