Fremont, CA. – February 22, 2014 – National number 49 Chad Cose of Fremont, CA. will be joining forces with Englehart Research & Technology (ERT) to kick-off the AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship season at rounds 1 & 2 in Daytona Beach, FL. on March 13-14.
Based out of Salem, OH., Englehart Research & Technology is fresh off their 2013 Horizon Award-winning campaign with rider Jeffery Lowery. Team owner Tom Englehart has decided to field two riders to start off the season in Daytona, with veteran rider Cose to team alongside Pro Singles rookie Lowery and both will be aboard ERT-backed Honda CRF450R's. Cose will campaign the Expert Singles Series event while Lowery will be making his Pro debut in the Pro Singles Series class.
"I am really excited to work with ERT as Tom is such a knowledgeable guy and puts 110% into his program,” stated Cose when asked about this new venture to kick start the new season. “That really gets me fired up to go out and fight for good results for not only myself but for ERT as well. We have already built a good relationship in the short time we have known one another, and I trust in his judgment and the direction he is going with ideas on bike set up, so it makes it that much easier making the transition from riding my personal bikes to the team bikes. I feel as if I have struggled somewhat the last couple of years trying to manage my own program, but I don't regret the direction I took at all,” continued CC49. “I think it has taught me some very valuable lessons and made me stronger as a person and as a rider. More than anything I'm ready to get down to Florida and really fight for it this year and be up front where I know I belong and show everyone I'm here to stay.”
ERT's Tom Englehart is also looking forward to the season-openers at Daytona and is looking for a strong showing. When asked about his thoughts, Engelhart stated, "After a long, cold winter I am very excited to get the season started. I hope we have built some bikes that are capable of assisting Chad to his best Daytona finish. I would also like to thank Ron Hamp for all his help and guidance during the off season." ERT Racing will kick off their pre-season testing at Savannah, GA. at round 1 of the Steve Nace Racing AMA All-Star Series on March 7th at Oglethorpe Speedway.
