Yoshimura to Sponsor Harold Goodman

Chino, Calif. - May 13, 2009 - Yoshimura announced today the sponsorship of 2008 ATVA Extreme Dirt Track Pro Champion Harold "Bumblebee" Goodman with exhaust pipes and various Yoshimura performance products.

Goodman will not only ride his Honda TRX450R in the 2009 Extreme Dirt Track Series, but also in the AMA Pro ATV Motocross Championship Race Series as well.

The Romulus, Michigan native began racing in 1986 and went Pro in 1995. He has been Champion of the Extreme Dirt Track Pro Class for the last two years and has consistently placed in the Top 10 in the motocross series. In addition, Goodman was voted the ATVA Athlete of the Year for 2008.

"We are excited to have Harold running Yoshimura products for the 2009 season," Yoshimura's VP of Marketing Brant Russell explained. "Yoshimura has been and will remain committed to ATV racing and this partnership with Harold Goodman is important to us. Harold works really hard and is a winner. In addition, Harold, his family, and his entire program are first rate. It's a pleasure to be associated with his efforts. It's a great chance for us to help show off our Honda products as well."

Yoshimura R&D development engineer Sean Gutierrez agreed, "We are the official sponsor of the Honda Supercross/Motocross two-wheel team, and have used some of what we have learned there for our quad products. Harold is great test rider as well as racer and his input will help develop our Honda ATV pipes even further going forward."

Goodman is also looking forward to the relationship: "It's great to be working with Yoshimura. Their exhaust system provides great horsepower and is nice and quiet so it passes the sound requirements at the Motocross Nationals."
