“What an amazing weekend. I was very impressed by the CRF150R teams, as the course
deteriorated and the sun set they seemed unfazeable and just kept charging. I want
to thank the sponsors that went above and beyond to make this extravaganza happen.
Dunlop, Renthal, Pro Circuit, DID, IMS tanks and refueling devices, BRP, VP race fuels
and Lucas Oil lubricants. The durability and performance of these products are key to
our success. I also want to thank the racers and their families, we had over 50 people
involved in this race effort and everyone did their job perfectly. JCR/Honda Pits factory
pit crew Captain Chris Boesen of Desert MC provided everything we needed to pull this plan
off. JCR technicians Eric Siraton and Mitch Hamm provided the bike prep and were on hand to
manage any maintenance issues along the way. I have raced Honda’s my whole career and I am
still impressed by their durability and performance thank you to American Honda for the
support so we can race and win!” — Johnny Campbell
