Kawasaki Team Green™ Ready to Beat the Competition and Heat at the AMA Amateur National Championship 

2017-08-02 06:57
After wrapping up practice at Loretta Lynn’s for the opening day of the 2017 AMA Amateur National Championships, Kawasaki Team Green riders are ready to bring home some hardware. One of the top storylines every year out of Hurricane Mills, Tennessee is the heat and humidity and this year is no different. Despite conditions currently being pleasant, everyone in the pits is preparing for another hot week at the ranch.

The first gate drops today and each rider will compete in three motos per class as they look to become part of history by winning an AMA Amateur National Championship.

“The track conditions are great out here at Loretta’s today,” said Garrett Marchbanks. “It’s been a little muddy, but I had some good lap times in practice and am just having a good time.”

“It’s not as humid as it was this time last year,” said Dillan Schwartz. “I felt good on the bike during practice and am ready to get started.”

“The track is deep,” said Lance Kobusch. “I realized I have a few things I need to work on after practicing today, but I’m looking forward to tomorrow and think it will be a great week.”

Kawasaki Team Green is set up in its traditional spot directly behind the starting gate, and as they have since the very first event at Loretta Lynn’s in 1982, with a full compliment of technicians and emergency parts.
