(August 27, 2012) - MOB racing is proud to announce that Jake Holden will be piloting one of the teams AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson XR1200X race bikes at NJMP Sept 7-9th along side #46 Shane Narbonne and local Team Pro-Motion racer #32 Bill Sink!

A new team sponsor, who prefers to remain anonymous, reached out to Jake this past week after reading of his retirement on RRW and after a short conversation and a few calls he was on board and enthusiastic after seeing the success the team has been having of late.

MOB Racing's success in the XR1200 class includes podium finishes at Barber and Mid-Ohio (our first 2 rounds in the series) and 2 pole positions in a row with 2 different riders- Mike Barnes at Mid-Ohio and PJ Jacobsen's dominating qualifying performance at Indianapolis this past week.

Team owner Dennis Espinosa says, "I read of Jakes retirement and thought that sucks, a great guy who gets raw deal after raw deal. We're gonna make sure MOB Racing gives him the tools he needs to get the job done right! He doesn't deserve to go out like that, he has more to offer and we're gonna see that at NJMP!"

Shane Narbonne again heads out in DSB on the #46 Yamaha R6 looking to make his mark at NJMP! Christian Cronin takes to the track on the teams #23 Yamaha R6 in the Supersport class. 4 riders in 3 classes....we're ready!

A special thanks to our new sponsor who was pivotal in putting this together, Newsholme Financial Center for stepping up again, Teterboro RAMS LLC, Team Pro-Motion, Designstar3.com, Motion-Pro, Saddlemen, Get-in-Gear, Markbilt, Trebour Motorcycles, Penske, K Tech, Orient Express, Vanted Solutions, Precision Heavy Equipment, Woodcraft and Armour Bodies.
