The Western Motorcycle Drag Racing Association (WMDRA) is excited to welcome Cardo scala rider® as an Associate Sponsor of the 2014 AMSOIL Sturgis Nationals, taking place August 5 and 6 at Sturgis Dragway, during the 74th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
Winning drag racing teams know that communication is the vital link to success. Rocketing down the dragstrip, the race bike communicates its track response to the rider, who communicates what the bike is doing to the crew chief. A winning tune up comes together from these communications. And no one links vital communications together better than Cardo Systems.
The WMDRA is proud to announce that Cardo scala rider® will sponsor the “Good Call” award with a Q3 MultiSet communication system to the crew chief with the best tune up as evidenced by most improved performance during competition. As judged by legendary crew chief Jackie Hill, wife of 1990 Sturgis Hall of Famer Pete Hill, the crew chief that makes the crucial “Good Call” yielding peak performance on the track when it counts the most, will be selected for this award.
According to WMDRA President Sandra Alberti, “Crew Chiefs are the unsung heroes in our sport and we’re thrilled to recognize them at Sturgis this year with the generous support of Cardo scala rider®.”
“We at Cardo scala rider® are extremely excited to be involved with the WMDRA. We look forward to continuing our involvement with such an outstanding group in our industry,” says Jamie Cheek, Director of Sales North America.
