Trey Canard Renews Honda Contract

Since going professional in 2007, the 23-year-old Trey Canard has competed with only one manufacturer – Honda. And this relationship will continue through the 2016 AMA Supercross and Motocross championships.

This was after the Oklahoma native extended his contract with the factory American Honda team for two additional years. Through 2016, Canard will compete aboard the Honda CRF450R.

“I’m so excited to continue my long relationship with Honda for another two years,” Canard said. “The company, the team and everyone involved is really motivated about racing, and we’re all pushing hard and doing our best.

“I’ll continue to always give my best effort over these next two years, and we’re shooting for wins and championships. The enthusiasm around Honda right now is a really good thing that I’m excited to be a part of, and I think 2015 is going to be a great year for us.”

Canard was forced to sit out all of 2014 AMA Supercross due to recovering from a broken arm. He returned to racing for the 2014 AMA Motocross Championship, and after nine rounds he is third in the point standings.

“We are very much looking forward to having Trey back with Honda for two more years,” said Ray Conway, Director of Racing at American Honda. “He has been with the company for his entire professional career, and he is a joy to work with. His performance this season, particularly in the Pro Motocross Championship, demonstrates his potential, and we’re expecting even better things from him in 2015 and ’16.”
