ATLANTA, GA – August 6, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Round eight of the MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship moves to Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, Ind. as MotoAmerica joins the international stars of MotoGP this weekend, August 7 – 9.
Bobby Fong comes into the weekend hungry for a win after riding the #50 Latus Motors Racing / Castrol / Triumph Daytona 675R to his first career pole during the last round of the championship at Laguna Seca. Currently sitting sixth in the Supersport point standings, Fong knows he has what it takes to get his first win after a season of running up front.
“Getting my first ever pole, especially at my home track, was amazing, but its time for me to get a win,” said Bobby Fong. “The Latus Motors Racing / Castrol / Triumph Daytona 675R has been running great the past few races and it’s always exciting to race in front of the MotoGP racers and crowd. Hopefully that will translate to another great result.”
As part of VETMotorsports outreach initiative, Sgt. Chad C. has been hired for the entirety of the MotoAmerica season as a crew member of the Latus Motors Racing team. Through Castrol’s VETMotorsports Performance Match Fund, the on-track performance of Triumph teams in both AMA Pro Flat Track and MotoAmerica competition has earned VETMotorsports $6,375 in bonuses thus far this season.
