A sincere thank you to everyone at the American Motorcyclist Association for including me – not only in their June issue of American Motorcyclist – but for putting me on the cover! It's a huge and incredible honor. The AMA's magazine reaches over 200,000 subscribers across the country each month.
We originally did a photo shoot at Grattan Raceway several weeks prior for this article they wanted to put together, but I had no idea it would end up making the cover. A number of people were involved in making this happen – and even some vetting behind the scenes – so I'm quite proud to represent the motorcycle industry, at least for one month. This is certainly one of the top highlights in my racing career.
Between this and the series of articles I'm currently writing for Roadracing World, I'm quite happy where this sport has taken me so far. Here's to more to come!
Maumee, OH – Honda East Suzuki of Toledo's rider Eddie Kraft will continue riding a Yamaha R1 during the upcoming race season in WERA regional and national events.
Kraft enters the year with 22 regional championships, two National Championships and over 85 race wins. He most recently won the WERA North Central 1000 Superstock Championship.
Honda East's Sales Manager Gabe Miller commented, "In our ninth year together, we’re excited for another great year with Eddie and Witchkraft Racing. We're love the track presence that has been generated for both the team and our dealership. We always strive to offer the best pricing on all our OEM bikes, ATVs, snowmobiles, generators and OEM parts. Eddie and entire team have always represented us professionally both on and off the track in every year we've been together, and we’re looking forward to helping them achieve their season goals. The team will kick off the season this weekend at the WERA National event, at Talladega Gran Prix Raceway."
