Krista Marie Partners with Harley-Davidson

(Nashville, Tennessee...) -- March 3, 2009 -- Broken Bow/Holeshot Records artist and champion ATV Motocross racer Krista Marie has made her living on the open road singing, performing and racing. Now, building off of her existing relationship with the NHRA, Krista has connected with Harley-Davidson motorcycles and Screamin' Eagle racing to make promotional appearances at H-D dealerships, NHRA events and will participate in charity rides across the country on behalf of the storied brand and to support Harley-Davidson's effort to encourage women to ride.

"We met Krista Marie through NHRA drag racing, and her passion for motorsports and Harley-Davidson motorcycles makes her a perfect fit as an honorary member of our Screamin' Eagle race team," said Harley-Davidson Manager of Racing Anne Paluso.

The relationship revs up today at Daytona Bike Week, where Krista will be riding her 2009 Harley-Davidson V-Rod Muscle. Elegance meets brute strength in her new ride, which features a 1250cc, liquid-cooled Revolution V-Twin engine with satin chrome, straight-shot side pipes, and a 250mm wide rear tire. Krista will be hitting the streets on her V-Rod Muscle as she participates in the Women's Day MDA Ride on Tuesday. Following the ride, she will hit the stage to perform music from her debut album at the Harley-Davidson Indoor Show at Daytona's new Ocean Center.

"I am so excited to be a part to the team and the Harley-Davidson family," said Krista. "Riding and music are my life and the fact that I get to do both... well I guess you can say I'm lucky enough to be living the dream!"

Krista Marie co-wrote and sang, "Drive It Like I Stole It, which is the theme song for ESPN's coverage of NHRA drag racing's 2009 season. Harley-Davidson is a dynasty in the world of drag racing, boasting four of the last five national champions and the current national champion, and Krista will make appearances at H-D exhibits during every NHRA event she attends.
