2013 AMA Supercross/Motocross Series News

For the 2013 AMA Supercross, Dan Betley substituted for Erik Kehoe as Team Manager of the Honda Muscle Milk Team.

During his successful tenure as manager, Betley led the team to two Supercross wins and six additional podiums with Trey Canard and the rookie Justin Barcia at the controls of the CRF450R.

And on Wednesday, American Honda reports that Betley will become the official team manager of Honda Muscle Milk beginning at the Hangtown Classic in Sacramento, Calif., the opening round of 2013 AMA Motocross.

Speaking of the new team manager, American Honda says since he began his career with Honda in 1989, Betley has held multiple positions within the race team, including his most recent as Engine Development and R&D specialist. He has worked with many high profile motocross champions such as Jeff Stanton, Jeremy McGrath and Ricky Carmichael, making him highly qualified for the role as team manager.

Ray Conway (Honda Race Team Director) says: “Dan has been with Team Honda for many years and has played an important role in the team’s success. It seems natural for him to move up to Team Manager and he has done a great job filling in during the 2013 Supercross season.”

Dan Betley says: “I’m looking forward to transitioning into my new role. It’s a challenging job but I got a good feel for what it entails while filling in during the 2013 Supercross season and I’m grateful Honda chose me to continue as team manager.

“We have two extremely talented riders in Trey Canard and Justin Barcia and a great team behind them, so I am looking forward to a successful Motocross season.”
