Twisted Speed Racing Gains Sponsorship From Barnes Bros. Motorcycles And Off-Road

Canonsburg, PA - Twisted Speed Racing announces Barnes Bros. Motorcycles & Off-Road, in Canonsburg, PA, as a team sponsor for the 2014 WERA Sportsman and National series events and select AMA SuperSport events. Barnes Bros. Motorcycles & Off-Road is a full service dealership selling new motorcycles, ATVs and UTVs from Polaris, Yamaha, Kawasaki, KTM and Suzuki. Barnes Bros. has a large Parts & Accessories department and a Service department.

Brad, Blake and Liam Barnes purchased the over 20 year old dealership from the Bentley family in early April of this year. Because of the large selection of world-famous brands and their knowledgeable staff, Barnes Bros. attracts customers from all over the tri-state area.

Barnes Bros. is located between Canonsburg and Houston, PA, and is about one mile from I-79 at Exit 43.

“Customers who walk into the dealership for the first time are shocked at how many bikes, quads, and side-by-sides are in our showrooms”, said Brad Barnes. “We are located in a former Packard car dealership built 70 years ago. Car dealerships were different then, Packard only had a couple of models. Our front showroom, which housed two to three cars, is all that is visible from the street. Our main showroom is the former Packard service area in the middle of the building and is quite large”.

The Barnes Bros. team is as passionate about sport bikes and track riding as they are about business and customer service. The number of Barnes Bros. employees who participate in track days and racing keeps growing exponentially. Lead Barnes Bros. salesman, Kyle Alexander, recently won his first WERA Superbike B Novice race at Summit Point, WV. “We are very excited to partner with someone as talented as Aaron” said Blake Barnes, “Aaron’s passion for racing is contagious”.

“We feel our partnership with Aaron and Twisted Speed will bring many new people into the sport” said Liam Barnes, who is always recruiting new riders for track days.

The “Barnes Bros.”, Blake and Liam, are building a community of riders, old and new, who love the excitement and camaraderie that road racing generates. Twisted Speed Racing is a race team based out of Washington, PA. Aaron Borello launched Twisted Speed Racing in 2010 so that spectators and sponsors could associate his racing success, professionalism and enthusiasm with a team name. Borello commented, "It’s great to finally have a local dealership with owners who are interested in road racing. I have known Blake and Liam Barnes for a few years now, we actually met at a track day. When I found out they were going to be running a dealership, I was ecstatic! It seemed like a perfect partnership to move forward together on the track and racing. I am excited to partner with Barnes Bros. Motorcycles & Off-Road, and I am looking for a successful 2014 season!”
