Can-Am DS 450 Rider Jeremy Lawson Rides Consistently


AMA logoValcourt, Quebec, May 5, 2008  ”“ Team Epic Racing / Can-AmTM racer Jeremy Lawson rode his DS 450TM ATV consistently for two motos to finish fifth overall at the Brich Creek motocross national near Danville, Virginia. This is Lawson's best finish for the year and he is consistently improving with each race.


"Jeremy Lawson is a rider we view as someone who will give us results each weekend," said Del Bohlman, Product, Media Relation and Racing Manager for Can-Am ATVs at BRP. "With his top-five finish we are extremely excited to have him racing a Can-Am DS 450."


John Natalie, who is currently fourth in points in the AMA Pro ATV class, was battling an eye injury he sustained at the last national. With the eye injury, he wasn't able to ride as aggressively as normal. Natalie finished eighth overall after taking fifth in the first moto.

““The Epic team did a great job. We made a couple changes to my set up and it worked awesome. I’m really looking forward to the next round. I’m hoping for another top 5 finish.”

““When I crashed at Ballance MotoX I got something in my eye and it scratched my cornea really bad. I’m feeling OK, but I can’t see very well, which is a big issue out there racing.”
