From a press release issued by American Honda:

American Honda announced today that long-time road racing technician Al Ludington will return to Honda Racing’s factory road racing team as the Crew Chief for multi-AMA Superbike and 600cc Supersport Champion Miguel Duhamel. Together, the pair has won more AMA road racing championships than any other rider-technician duo in history.

“Honda Racing has always been my home. Most of my championship titles have been made possible thanks to Honda’s tireless efforts to achieve excellence. It’s good to be home,” said a happy Ludington.

Also joining Honda Racing’s road racing squadron for 2002 is Danny Hull. Hull will be responsible for Kurtis Roberts’s Erion Racing/Honda RC51 Superbike chassis development. Hull has worked with Roberts in the past on the Erion Racing team and is excited to be joining forces with Roberts to contest in the upcoming 2002 AMA Superbike championship.

“I’m glad to be working with American Honda and Kurtis Roberts,” said Hull. “Kurtis and I have won a Formula Xtreme title together, and I look forward to winning a Superbike championship. It’s going to be a great year.”

(Editor’s note: Ludington left Honda two years ago and went to Kawasaki when Team Honda’s then-manager, Gary Mathers, did not renew Ludington’s contract. Mathers has since retired from Honda and is now an AMA official.)
