LeoVince Exhaust once again dominant brand at Daytona Speedweek, LeoVince USA announces U.S. and global sponsored teams.

RICHMOND, CA – March 11, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – With more than 42 sponsored professional riders competing in Daytona Beach Florida during the course of Daytona speedweek events LeoVince is again the dominant exhaust brand competing this week. LeoVince has seen the podium in Daytona the last five years with winning performances in AMA Pro  Grand National Flattrack, the Daytona 200 and AMA Pro Superbike races. After leading most laps of the final of the AMA Pro Grand National Flattrack last evening Jersey Jake Johnson settled in for a hard earned third place finish ensuring that LeoVince continues its Daytona podium march for another year.

With Speedweek in full swing LeoVince USA is announcing their U.S. and Global sponsorships for 2011. LeoVince’s U.S. Race Manager Ted Campbell states: “With more than 58 officially sponsored Teams globally and hundreds of additionally sponsored riders LeoVince is well positioned for another year of racing excellence worldwide. We are very happy to renew our sponsorship with Attack Performance and Cycle World, Kawasaki Superbike and Sportbike riders Eric Bostrom and JD Beach and excited to add young AMA Supersport sensation James “Rocket” Respoli”.

Fabio Mozzone, LeoVince’s Global Sponsorship and Communications Manager adds: This year Tech 3 in MotoGP will be our top team in road racing with riders Colin Edwards and rookie Cal Crutchlow. Their M1 will be equipped with a special LeoVince R&D developed silencer. In World Superbike we will sponsor Factory Kawasaki with the new ZX-10R. This relationship showcases the high level of technical development of our new Factory R exhaust systems have. In World Supersport we will sponsor both Kawasaki and Honda and our focus is solely on winning the championship as second place for this series is not acceptable this season. In BSB and Road Race we supply the official Suzuki teams in every racing class”. He adds: “To complete the picture; in the World Endurance Series we will support the SRS Kawasaki team in the Superbike class”. To finish he states: “Our sponsoring program also includes the off-road competitions where we will supply many factory teams engaged in the World Series like Kawasaki in MX, Honda in MX, Enduro and Supermoto and Husqvarna in Enduro.”
