Holland, Mich. (Mar. 22, 2016) — Riders Discount is proud to announce that Quicksilver will be sponsoring the Riders Discount/Tuned Racing race team for the 2016 MotoAmerica season. Riders Discount owner Brian Gibson is thrilled to have Quicksilver on board.
“We are super excited about our friends over at Quicksilver joining the Riders Discount/Tuned Racing effort for the 2016 MotoAmerica Series,” said Gibson. “I have always been an extreme gear head and loved watching offshore boats race minutes away from the Riders Discount HQ on Lake Michigan. Knowing that Quicksilver is the oil behind those extremely fast Mercury engines and that they are joining this side of the Powersports Industry is nothing short of a rush. Their knowledge and technical expertise of what it takes to keep a motor running at its peak performance only brings me more confidence that they will raise our effort to the next level and help us win a championship.”
Quicksilver is owned by Mercury Marine, the largest builder of marine propulsion systems in the world, and they couldn’t be more excited with this new partnership. Mercury Marine has been developing, testing and providing lubricants for some of the most demanding engine applications, and has turned this considerable expertise to non-marine markets where high performance in extreme conditions is essential. The Riders Discount/Tuned Racing team knows the crucial importance of the right high performance lubricant in their motorcycle engines, often turning at 16,000 RPM on their way to victory.
“We were very excited that Riders Discount/Tuned Racing turned to us, and we couldn’t be happier with this new partnership,” said Eric Reilley, Product Manager at Quicksilver. “The partnership is a perfect match for Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants because of Riders Discount/Tuned Racing’s strength in racing, knowledge of the market, and fantastic marketing presence. We could not ask for a better team to break into this year’s MotoAmerica race series.”
Tuned Racing owner Mike Pond is happy to be working with Quicksilver this season.
“There are no words to explain how excited I am about the 2016 MotoAmerica season and to join forces with a company excited to help grow our sport and bring us the best oil possible,” said Pond. “Thank you Quicksilver and welcome to the Tuned Racing family! It’s amazing how blessed the team has been to have the opportunity to work some of the greatest companies in the business like Riders Discount, Graves Motorsports, and now Quicksilver Lubricants! A winning combination.”
