From a press release issued by Triumph America: Following on the factory support of the famous Stefano Caracchi’s World Super Sport team, many of the Triumph subsidiaries have chosen to back race teams in their respective countries. Along with professional teams competing in Italy, Germany, Britain and the World Super Sport championship, Triumph Motorcycles (America) Ltd. has officially announced support for three of its U.S. based dealers and their professional road racing efforts with the award winning Daytona 675. Commonwealth Triumph/Team S-Works, from Louisville, Kentucky will compete in the Formula Extreme series with eighteen year old, Shane Narbonne. Coming from a successful dirt track career, Shane has only been road racing for one season and has already claimed a number of regional championships in the CCS series. D&D Cycles, from Pensacola, Florida will compete in select Formula Extreme races and the AHRMA Sound of Thunder series with Robert McClendon III. Having won the AHRMA Triumph Thruxton Cup Championship the last two years in a row, Robert is no stranger to winning on Triumph motorcycles. Rob has the most experience of all three teams on the Daytona 675, finishing last year’s Daytona 200 on a completely stock Triumph Daytona 675 in the top 25. Foothills Triumph, from Lakewood, Colorado will compete in the regional MRA series with Brad Hendry. Brad is an experienced racing champion, and looks forward to a successful year of winning in a number of classes in the MRA. Brad and the Foothills Roadracing Team will spend most of their season competing in regional events in the Colorado area.
