AMA Flat Track DSR Enterprise is proud to announce that it has joined a growing list of outstanding companies and entrepreneurial individuals coming on board to support James Rispoli Racing starting at the Springfield event through the end of the season.
DSR will provide a new 09 CRF 450 set up to operate as a Grand National short track and TT bike. The bike will debut Saturday evening May 29th on the Springfield TT.According to Dustin Say, "I’m a trained MMI mechanic and have worked in the motorcross industry for several years traveling and wrenching for young industry supported teams and know how they operate. James works harder and receives so much less than some of the kids I supported and just felt it wasn’t right." "I purchased the new bike and with the support of James and his sponsors was able to put together a national caliber bike very economically. I’m excited to be James’ mechanic and now feel even more part of the team having an equity stake in his operation. I can’t wait to get to Springfield and let it all hang out.""I’m blessed to have such great people all around me" said James. "Dustin has been busting his butt working on every part of my program and when he surprised me with this TT bike I was just floored. But it couldn’t of happened without the incredible support of my sponsors who supplied all the components for this masterpiece. I need thank Charlie Benton at Cycle Dynamics. Charlie hand ported and built an incredible TT motor the hardest pulling motor I have every ridden." "D&D Performance supplied their awesome exhaust, Bazzaz supplied the electronics package, Vortex the gears, K&N the filters, Motion Pro the revolver throttle and other bits and pieces, Victory Graphics, Works Connection, Boughner Suspension, Ant-Racing, Spectro Oil, Spider Grips, Engine Ice, DP Brakes and Mike Scott at Scott’s Power Sports." James is an 18 year old action sports athlete that races motorcycles in AMA Pro Flattrack, AMA Pro Superbike and AMA/FIM Land Speed Record Chasing.
