BRANDON ROBINSON SIGNED TO RACE TRIUMPH FOR LATUS MOTORS RACING IN 2015 AMA PRO FLAT TRACK
GLADSTONE, Oregon – (December 19, 2014) - Team Latus Motors / Castrol / Triumph is proud to announce and welcome Brandon Robinson, AMA national #44, as its new racer for the 2015 AMA Grand National Championship season.
Brandon Robinson, a 24-year-old professional flat track motorcycle racer from Oxford, Penn., is known by his fans as “BRob” and has already accomplished much in GNC racing, a series which usually favors the veterans of the sport. During his rookie year in 2012, BRob nearly lost his life in a horrific first turn pile up that ended his season, only to bounce right back the next year and win the famed Springfield Mile not once, but twice, win the Daytona short track, and finish third in the overall AMA GNC year end point standings in 2013. All of those finishes along with many podium finishes in his very young career make BRob a serious threat for the 2015 coveted AMA Grand National Championship.
“Last season I saw the very strong potential of the Latus Motors / Castrol / Triumph team and realized right away that that was a bike I wanted to be on,” said BRob. “I am very excited to sign with a new team that has the same motivation as myself to always strive to be the best, and I cannot wait for the 2015 season to start. With the crew that Team Latus has assembled around me, I’m really looking forward to helping develop the Triumph and restoring some of the glory that the brand once had in our sport.”
Team Latus Motors is owned and operated by George Latus of Latus Motors Triumph in Gladstone, Ore. “We are very excited to bring Brandon on board as I have been watching him for a few years now, and he’s always impressed me with his drive and determination to come back and compete at the top level like he has after such a bad accident during his rookie year,” said Latus. “And I really feel that we have put together a very strong support team to help him achieve his and our goal of once again putting Triumph on top of the podium.”
Managing the team once again will be former AMA Grand National Champion Joe Kopp. “I had the opportunity to ride the Triumphs quite a few times this year, so I feel like I know what type of rider is needed to make the Triumphs work best,” said Kopp. “I think Brandon fits that slot perfectly. With Brandon’s riding style and watching just what he does to make a bike work underneath him makes me very excited for the 2015 season to begin. And to bring our new mechanic Brent Armbruster on board to help with the fine tuning of things is just another huge asset to our program. It’s going to be fun.”
Team Latus Motors is supported by Triumph Motorcycles America, Castrol, GE Capital, Freedom Road Financial, K&N, Penske, Motion Pro, Cometic, Wiseco, Saddlemen, Competition Werks, Bike Master, MotoConcepts, Joker, Mad Hatter, and Pro Plates.
