UNION, S.C. – The Coastal Racing ATV and Side-by-Side team had a successful day of racing on Saturday at Round 4 of the 2016 Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series in Union, South Carolina. The ATV efforts were led by Brycen Neal, who scored 2nd overall en route to his 4th consecutive podium appearance this season. In Side-by-Side action, Coastal Racing Team Drivers Bill Patterson, Sean Bogdan and John Henry each captured a top-ten overall in the highly competitive SXS category, with Henry earning the XC2 Pro Sport victory.

The XC1 Pro ATV holeshot was a chaotic one as two of the top riders collided off the start, causing a pileup around the first corner. Neal was able to stay clear of the carnage and put his Coastal Racing/MSR/Maxxis/Waynesburg Yamaha into a favorable second-place position on the opening lap. Neal soon made the pass on Chris Borich to overtake the lead on lap two and the Ohio native pushed hard to create a 30-second gap over the battle for 2nd place.

Kawasaki-LogoIRVINE, Calif. — Kawasaki is celebrating 50 years in the U.S. in 2016. The company noted in a press release that yesterday exactly 50 years prior, on March 1, 1966, American Kawasaki Motorcycle Corp. (AKMC) opened for business in Chicago. The company resided in a modest sales office at 208 South La Salle Street and a two-story parts warehouse at 2860 North Lincoln Avenue. Formerly the site of a meat-packing plant, the warehouse needed serious renovation, but the price was right for a company trying to gain a toehold in a vast new country. Welcomed by Tony Watanabe with Ted Tazaki, who led the charge to establish the Chicago office, just 50 people attended the grand opening, held at the nearby Continental Hotel. But it was the right crowd, including the banks, trading companies and distributors that would support the company’s early efforts in America.
