“We are very excited to have signed a front running rider in November,” stated Richie Morris. “This allows time for testing new ideas, equipment, and crew right away. I have been watching and talking to Bobby a few years now and I honestly feel he is one of the most naturally talented riders in the paddock. We feel confident that with the proper preparation he will be a championship contender next season.”
Fong finished a strong 2012 season with multiple podium finishes while riding for Meen Motorsports. His career has consisted of top finishes in the Daytona Sport Bike Class capped off with a win at VIR in 2010.
“I’m very excited about the new team and looking forward to unloading at Daytona with the expectation of winning!” said Fong. “My concentration this off season will be training and testing. I’m thankful to Richie and Dave for believing in me and looking forward to working with my new crew!”
“Richie and I have been discussing riders since September,” stated Dave Brite. “Each and every time Bobby’s name made the list. With his aggressive style and willingness to work within our team plan, eventually his name came out on top.”
As for the Vance and Hines XR1200 Class, Fong will ride for Bruce Rossmeyer’s Daytona Harley-Davidson.
“Bruce Rossmeyer’s Harley- Davidson has been a long time supporter of motorcycle racing along with being a sponsor of RMR since 1994″ says Shelly Rossmeyer Pepe. “We are very excited about the partnership of Richie (Morris) and Dave (Brite) and are as equally excited to have a rider the caliber of Bobby Fong join our team”.
