Vision One Motorsports Will Skip the 2011 Canadian Motocross Season

May 6, 2011

Huntington, TX (May 6, 2011) – Vision One Motorsports is disappointed to announce that the team will be missing the 2011 CMRC Canadian Motocross Nationals.  Vision One Motorsports has been running under the Cernic’s Kawasaki banner in recent years and team owner, Billy Whitley, has decided to take a one-year hiatus from the top action sports series in Canada.

Whitley’s Vision One Motorsports has become a staple at the CMRC Canadian Motocross Nationals for the past eight years.  The team has enjoyed tremendous success in Canada and has always felt very welcome despite the fact that they are a team based in the United States.  However, the economy has made it difficult for motorsports teams around the world to secure sponsors and Vision One Motorsports is no exception. 

“It was a very tough decision for me to make,” explained Whitley.  “I think most of you know that I absolutely love racing in Canada and everyone makes our whole team feel welcome.  I have talked to all of our sponsors and they understand that I don’t want to go into the series at less than 100%.  They know me and fully support me in that decision.  We will be back in 2012 but in the meantime I’m looking forward to an off-season where I can spend more time with my family.”

Vision One Motorsports would like to thank all of our sponsors who support us in this tough decision: Cernic’s, Canadian Kawasaki Motors, Pro Circuit, Motion Pro, EBC Brakes, Athena, Dunlop, Hinson Clutch Components, Boyesen, UNI Filters, Moto Option, Silkolene, Pro Wheel, Works Connection, SPY Optics, VP Fuels, FLU Designs, OGIO, D.I.D. Racing Chains, SDG, Pro Taper, and EVS.
