Being a New Yorker my entire life, I can remember the exact day of the tragedy,” Corey Alexander says.“At the time only being 7 years old, I didn’t understand the magnitude of the events unfolding. Though I did feel the magnitude of the events then, I continue to feel the impact it had on our city, our state, and our country. With the help of our team painter Lance, graphics company Signs Ink, and leather sponsor Spidi Sport I’m excited to bring our vision come to life. It’s a tremendous honor to showcase this special livery, and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do!”
