Be-Ev.Com will continue to sponsor racing in the Internal Combustion Engine (aka ICE) world in an effort to help bring more attention to the electric vehicle world. Company Co-owner/builder/test rider, Jeremiah Johnson, has competed succesfully in ICE based racing for many years. In 2011, he promoted the Be-EV.Com name as he returned to the AMA Pro Racing series. Be-EV.Com fielded a Harley-Davidson XR1200 in the emerging AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 Series. This is an exciting new spec series that features Harely-Davidson XR1200 bikes from the show room and allow for a series specified Vance & Hines Race Kit. This spec racing class that debut in 2010 at 5 of the AMA Pro Racing events proved to be an exciting series with very close racing.
A pre-season crash did a lot of damage to the bike, and unfortunately a few of the vital parts were on backorder througout the country. By the time the bike got back on the track, we had missed the first 4 rounds. Jeremiah and the team was forced to do all of their development throughout the race season, but worked their way closer to the front each round, ending the season at New Jersey Motorsports park with a season high finish of 12th.
The team is looking forward to bringing that develpment to the start of the 2012 season and continue to progress towards the front of the field.
Look for the Be-Ev.Com backed XR1200 at all the AMA Pro Racing events in 2012. We hope to see you at the races.
