I feel we have the bikes working well and the boys & I are really looking forward to the new fuel injection on the 2016 4 strokes. I think we have a real chance at a championship or two, the boys are comfortable on the Betas and are only getting faster. Its going to be an awesome year.”
Beta USA’s Tim Pilg, “I am elated to continue with the Purvines crew. They have done an outstanding job these past couple of years and are determined to win. We will be providing them with EFI bikes this season so it should be an exciting season for sure.”

Teaming up with Beta USA and all our sponsors, I think we have an very good chance at getting that first AMA Hare & Hound championship for ourselves & Beta. We have an excellent program in place, top level riders, in Nick Burson & Axle Pearson and some of the best equipment in the desert. We will chase the AMA NHHA series & the West Coast Hare Scrambles series again in 2016. Thank you to all our sponsors that help so much during the year, we could not do it without them.” explains Team owner Ron Purvines.
