Lloyd Brothers Motorsports, Inc. (LBM) is proud to announce the continuation of our AMA Grand National Flat Track program for 2011.

The 2010 racing season was extremely successful for Lloyd Brothers Motorsports. Highlights include 2000 Grand National Champion Joe Kopp winning the Yavapai Mile in Arizona in his very first race aboard the LBM Ducati-powered flat tracker. This was Ducati’s first win in the over 100 year old series and the win broke a 29 year win streak shared by specific-built factory flat track Honda and Harley-Davidson engines.

In addition to Kopp’s historic win, LBM was privileged to host AMA Pro Racing Superbike racer Larry Pegram to race at the Springfield and Indy Miles and Ducati Factory Moto-GP star Nicky Hayden for exhibition laps at the Indy Mile in front of the very appreciative capacity crowd.

At the season’s end, Joe Kopp announced his retirement from full-time flat track competition. Kopp’s recommendation for a potential new rider for the team was fellow Washington State racer, Brad Baker. “Brad is 18 years old and the 2009 AMA Pro-Singles champion. I have watched this kid for a long time and he is the real deal. He’s a hard-worker, has loads of talent, is very appreciative and has the potential to move to the front very quickly with a solid team behind him” said Joe Kopp.

“With Joe’s retirement, we found ourselves in a position to secure a rider that fits into the long-term growth plan of our team, our sponsors and AMA Pro Racing. We approached Brad Baker and we are very happy that he accepted our invitation to join the team” stated team co-owner David Lloyd.

“I have watched a lot of fast young men coming up into the expert ranks over the last 23 years” continued team co-owner Michael Lloyd. “It takes a combination of talent, physical ability, desire, a strong mind set, extreme confidence, a strong work ethic and a personality that fits well with a solid team to make it to the front as an Expert. Brad possesses all of these assets. Dave Gamble, Kevin Atherton, David Lloyd and I are confident that Brad’s rookie season will be very successful.”

Lloyd Brothers Motorsports, Inc. is proud to welcome 2011 financial sponsors TeamHurtByAccident.com and CJ Czaia, ENI USA (formerly American Agip), Motion Pro, Foremost Insurance Company, and Daniel Kalal.
