Mazda statement regarding the retirement of Bob Bach/closing of B-K Motorsports

"Retirements always leave mixed feelings. We're happy for Bob, but we're sad that we won't be seeing him at the track on a regular basis. Bob and the entire B-K team were a part of the MAZDASPEED family for almost a decade and will be missed on both a professional and personal level. B-K was a great example of a team moving up the ranks with Mazda. I remember when Bob was racing in the Star Mazda series before moving up to the ALMS. B-K will forever have a place in Mazda history having scored our first ALMS win in 2005. They have also been a tremendous help in developing the new Mazda MZR-R engine. We wish Bob the best in retirement, but suspect he'll still come out to watch us race at Road America," said Robert Davis, Senior Vice President, Product Development and Quality, and the man responsible for Mazda's North American motorsports operations under the MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development banner.

Mazda will announce their 2009 ALMS plans later this year.
