RXR Protect and Team MDK/WWR Offer a Ride to Colt HumphreyThursday, March 13, 2008 | 6:17 AM
Colt Humphrey joins the team for the rest of the East Coast Lites series!
When Team MDK/Wonder Warthog Racing’s Darrell Saldana, Scott Kandell and RXR Protect’s Chris Favro decided to search for a new candidate in order to replace East Coast Lites rider Jase Lewis, who had been sidelined by a collarbone injury, they didn’t foresee that it would turn out into more of a challenge.
“We wanted to help a privateer that had the speed, the right attitude, the right reasons to join the team” says Darrell Saldana. “A rider who could make the Main thanks to the MDK Speed-prepared CRF250R and our Team MDK/WWR structure. A lot of good guys applied and it wasn’t an easy choice but Colt had what we were looking for. It’s very exciting to have him on the team. See you guys in Minneapolis.”
“We’re really happy to have Colt on board. I have seen him race before and it is going to be positive for all of us. I have to admit that what seemed to be a pretty simple and good idea for Darrell, Scott and myself, turned into a difficult exercise. Not really due to the number of applications that we have received, but mostly because of the pool of talent and great potential that is out there.” said Chris Favro. “Although it is rewarding to be able to offer the ride, and the opportunity to race in better conditions, to Colt Humphrey, I have to admit that it is extremely frustrating not being able to do it for more of them. We’re getting Colt’s RXR chest-protector ready for Minneapolis; he’s going to look safe and cool.“
Team MDK/WWR Colt Humphrey’s bike number #133 is an MDK Speed Honda CRF250R with graphic kits and backgrounds by DeCal Works.
