Old Glory Speed Shop is the performance branch of Old Glory Harley-Davidson/Buell motorcycle dealership located in Laurel, Maryland. Selling and servicing motorcycles since 2007, the dealership decided to expand its operations into racing in 2010. The Old Glory Speed Shop began with the stated purpose of extracting the maximum performance from Buell and Harley-Davidson machines. The original theme of celebrating the American Flag, Old Glory, forms the DNA on which the concept was built. 

"It is our pleasure to have Brandon and Dennie racing under the Old Glory Speed Shop Banner!" said Jeff Geisbert, Manager of Old Glory Speed Shop. 

Owner of Old Glory, Steve Scalia, also chimed in, "They embody everything that is great about racing speed, performance and winning. Plus, they are two of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. We encourage Harley-Davidson, Buell and race fans across the board to meet our Team. If you can't make it to the track, they will attend many of our Special Events this year at Old Glory Harley-Davidson."

The team is proud to partner with fellow title sponsor Continental Tires for the 2011 season. Team rider, Brandon Cretu, has been working with Continental since 2009 to help develop and market their new DOT, Slick, and Rain motorcycle roadrace tires in the USA.
