Premiere Motorsports Group has a new refocused determination for the 2012 Lucas Oil Off Road Season. As Hart and Huntington Off Road enters the 4th year of the premiere short course series, the Super Team status has been refined to a spotlighted three truck team. Josh Merrell will lead in the #22 MAV TV: American Real PRO-4, Carey Hart will run a second PRO-4 in the eBay Motors #46 Truck, and Ryan Beat will run the #51 ProLite for his first full season.
Ryan Busnardo, Premiere Motorsports Group Team Leader commented, “This year, It is all business. We have installed a crew that wants to be here and everyone is serious about winning races. We are running the big three pro classes only and we intend to run these programs at the top level. We have eliminated all the distractions. We are here to rock. We are here to win.”
Josh Merrell will continue to run PMGs flagship truck, the same machine that put him on the podium in the last 3 out of 4 races entered. The MAV TV: American Real PRO-4 has gone through meticulous preparation including total teardown, and rebuild. Master Technician, Tommy Orduno has cleaned, replaced, improved or upgraded every component including paying special attention to safety and ease of maintenance. The truck is ready for a full season.
”With the new truck, I was just getting warmed up last year,” stated Josh Merrell. “I am really excited to start the 2012 season with a fresh outlook. I have been training hard and I am prepared physically and mentally. I am ready, the truck is ready and we are headed out testing to get into race mode. Confidence and determination are going to be key factors in my program. See more of Josh Merrell on the Hart and Huntington Off Road Youtube Page.
The Hart and Huntington Off Road PRO-4 effort will be doubled with Carey Hart piloting the #46 eBay Motors Truck. Having a team mate working together through the field should prove a real advantage for the Hart and Huntington Team. The strategy works well for others and more teams have partnered up.
Ryan Beat will drive the #51 Premiere Motorsports Group ProLite. This program will be powered by a Nogrady built 5.9 Litre Dodge Motor. “We are going for results and this package is very reliable.” Ryan went on to explain, “ProLite is where I wanted to be for a long time. I finally started this build just over a year ago. We started out with a JimCO Chassis and I brought it to Robby Woods. He spent a few weeks re-designing on the computer and from there we put flame to metal. We feel like the truck is now much better suited for my driving style. This ProLite has the best of everything including General Tires, Method Wheels, and Fox Racing Shoxs. Even though the ProLite field is stronger and bigger than ever, I am confident in myself as a driver. I Know I have the ability and the equipment, and Premiere Motorsports Group is there for support. I am looking forward to getting this truck out on the track and fighting for podium all season long.” See more of Ryan Beat on the Hart and Huntington Off Road Youtube Page.
Partnerships and branding opportunities are still available including Presenting Sponsors on both the PRO-4 Trucks and Title Rights to the ProLite is also open. Don’t miss out on these exciting opportunities, please contact Ryan Busnardo for more information.
