Munn Racing KTM & Moto Innovations Sign Lance Vincent & Sean Hackley Jr.Wednesday, November 2, 2011 | 1:25 PM
Munn Racing KTM of Elm Mott, Texas, is expanding our vision and taking the racing program to a new level of commitment for 2012 and beyond. Munn Racing KTM has formed a strong alliance with Moto Innovations which shares in our commitment to excellence and success. This new relationship is paramount in helping achieve our immediate and long term goals.
“We are very excited to be partnering with such a premium name in the motorcycle industry. Munn Racing KTM is a great fit with Moto Innovations as we share the same vision of winning races,” says Tom Crain, owner of Moto Innovations and inventor of Ankle Savers®. Moto Innovations designs, manufactures and distributes the Ankle Savers® foot pegs and has been involved in both amateur and professional racing for years.
Team owner Chip Munn is honored to officially announce Lance Vincent and Sean Hackley, Jr. to our 2012 team. Our riders will be contesting both the AMA Supercross Lites Championship and AMA Pro Motocross 250cc National Championship Series aboard KTM 250SXF race machines.
"Munn Racing KTM and Moto Innovations are focused on building a really solid team with strong alliances. The timing is right to step up and make a bold statement and signing Lance Vincent is that statement," said Chip Munn. "Vincent is fast, talented and motivated; a very hot property and serious threat to podium or win every time the gate drops." Vincent finished 8th overall in the AMA East Supercross Lites in 2011 and looks to exceed that mark this season. Sean Hackley, Jr. is a tough competitor and is not afraid to let it all hang out. Sean has shown prowess as the next superstar, but due to set backs and injuries has not yet emerged. We believe in Sean and he will make his mark like never before.
Signing these diamonds in the rough gives us the opportunity to really distinguish Munn Racing Moto Innovations KTM to be a serious threat for the AMA Monster Energy Supercross Lites title in 2012.
“We are excited for the upcoming 2012 AMA Monster Energy Supercross season,” said Chip Munn. “The KTM 250SXF has a powerful history and with EBR Performance taking the helm in our motor and suspension department we are confident we can get out front and stay there".
