Tell us about your team pit crew:
The wrecking crue consists of Jonny X2 Lee, Lisa Price , Karen Mann, Karen's brother, and lots of additonal help by the Looter Pro team.
Those guys and girls are on it. I have time to slam some Gatorade and clean my goggles and then its go time!
Tell us about your mechanic:
I can't say enough good things about my mechanic.
Minuro Kanamori is hands down the best Kawasaki guy on the planet.
More than just mechanical help, he's been a good friend and an even better training partner. Along with Emi, those two whip me into shape and keep me pushing forward with a never give up attitude.
Also, World Champ Shawn Quemada has been a big help when it comes to busting up some knuckles.
# 31 Kawasaki SXR 800.
2009 set-up : wet pipe, mag pump, 3DR hood, stock carbs.
Tell us about your team, vision and competition goals:
Team ASAP Racing is just a group of friends that all ride together on Sundays in Long Beach, CA.
Charles & Anne Sims
Minuro and Emi Kanamori
Vince Colf and many more.
Our vision is to be safe and have fun on the water every Sunday. Our goals are to ride circles around the competition and never give up!
Sponsors, website links, products you use and supporters:
Euphoria Body Works
BCW Performance and KFactor Speedworks are all friends of mine that chip in big time.
Safety advice you can share with others:
Get a new helmet every year and make sure it fits. Get a back protector and never ride bouys without them. Your neck and head are fragile and do not heal quickly.
Most important thing to bring to a race?
Favorite Quote of your own:
