Attack Performance has been granted a wild card entry for the two American rounds of the FIM MotoGP World Championship, July 27-29 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and August 17-19 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Attack Performance's wild card lists Steve Rapp as the rider and Attack Performance as the "Machine Constructor."

Getting the wild card approval early is important due to the obviously lengthy process required to design, build and test a motorcycle that will fit within the new Claiming Rule Team (CRT) structure.

Attack Performance, a high-performance motorcycle parts manufacturer based in Huntington Beach, California, specializes in triple clamps, shock linkages and other chassis parts. The company successfully raced its own Kawasaki ZX-10R in the 2011 AMA Pro National Guard Superbike Championship and at the 2012 AMA Pro Superbike season-opener at Daytona International Speedway.

More details will be reported as they become available.
