Riders Discount To Sponsor WERA Racer Eddie Kraft

HOLLAND, Mich. (June 10, 2014) – Riders Discount is pleased to partner with Eddie Kraft of Witchkraft Racing for the remainder of the 2014 WERA season. A well known and respected figure both on track and off with numerous wins and expert championships to his name, signing with Eddie only made sense.

“I have raced with Eddie many times throughout the years, and with his on track and off track professionalism I look forward to him representing the Riders Discount brand well,” said Riders Discount owner, Brian Gibson. “Actually I might have to get out to a WERA round yet this year and line up against these great competitors.”

“I'm really looking forward to working with Riders Discount. Considering they are a leader in the motorsports market, along with having such a dedicated focus to racing, partnering with them will be a great addition to our team,” said Kraft. “With the fun of racing comes a great deal of work and preparation and these guys get that. I feel Riders Discount is really going to help contribute to our goals of being successful - and my goal is to help them do the same.”

Eddie’s first event as a Riders Discount rider was a successful one at WERA Cycle Jam in Road Atlanta coming away with one win, two podiums and a fourth in a stacked field.

“The Cycle Jam went really well for us. Coming down from Michigan, it's always fun to race at different venues. We were able to get a couple podium finishes along with a win at a track we're not too familiar with, among some really big grids and tough competition. We were able to lead both 1000 races at one point on our GSX-R750 and nearly stuck with the big bikes on that long back straight away. We knew this track would be a challenge, but it turned out to be a successful weekend.”
