EDR Performance Teams with AMA Rider Josh Galster
May 11th, 2008, Portland Oregon: EDR Performance is pleased to announce a partnership agreement with AMA roadracer Josh Galster. Galster will compete in the entire AMA Supersport series, alongside Slednecks Racing teammate Misti Hurst. Both riders will race EDR Performance prepped, 2007 Kawasaki ZX6R's.
"Josh is an awesome guy and is doing incredibly well in his first season of AMA racing." said Eric Dorn of EDR Performance. "We are impressed with his accomplishments thus far and are excited to be able to provide some much needed support."
Galster began racing with the MRA in Colorado in 2004 where he won the Rookie of the Year award, despite having a stock SV 650, complete with a turkey basting pan safety wired to the bike as his belly pan.
In '05 and '06 he raced the WERA West series and held the championship plates for Lightweight Twins, Superstock and Superbike for both years. For '07 Galster purchased a new Kawasaki ZX6R and won the C Superstock and B 750 Supersport Championships while also finishing 3rd overall in C Superbike. He accomplished all this while maintaining a full time coaching position with the world-renowned California Superbike School.
This year, Josh takes on the AMA. "I am so excited about racing with the most elite riders in the country." said Galster "I'm also thrilled about our partnership with EDR Performance. They have been supporting Misti since the middle of last year, and Eric was an awesome help at our most recent race weekend at Fontana. I'm certain that their work is going to have very positive results for my riding!"
EDR Performance is the Pacific Northwest's premier motorcycle performance center. In 2006 they took the #1 plate for WMRRA and also set 3 land speed records. During their first full year of being open they won 11 championships and both the OMRRA and WMRRA #1 plates. EDR Performance brings over ten year of experience on the track and on the dyno to their work of building winning motors, tuning EFI and providing professional trackside support.
Watch for Josh and Misti at the upcoming AMA Supersport Event, May 16-18th at Infinneon Raceway, Sonoma. With Galster's impressive finishes to date, 26th at Daytona, 21st at Barber and 18th at California Speedway, he is well on his way to winning the AMA Rookie of the Year Award.
