(Morrison, CO) July 24, 2010 - The Attitude Apparel team of Rodger Brogdon and Steve Kent have signed Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Craig Treble to the 'Pistonator' team for the balance of the 2010 season and the NHRA Countdown to 1 championship.

Treble, who started the 2010 season riding for Don Schumacher, found himself back on board his own bike after Schumacher shut down the Pro Stock bike team and put the operation up for sale. The talented rider from Indiana will run the final 8 races of the season showcasing the Attitude Apparel motorsports clothing line that features the fan favorite 'Pistonator' has the company logo.

"I can't thank Rodger Brogdon and Steve Kent enough for this opportunity," said Treble. "I've got a new chassis that's just about ready to go, but now with Attitude Apparel's help I'll be able to replace my current engine with a fresh one and I can't tell you how excited I am to know that I can finish out the season with the power needed to make a run for the championship. I've already placed the order with Vance & Hines for a new engine and we should have it in plenty of time for the next race in Brainerd, MN"

Treble, who is currently ninth in the Pro Stock Motorcycle point's chase, was looking at possibly finishing outside of the top 10 for the first time in 13 years. With 8 races left in the 2010 season, Treble will now have the opportunity to close out the year with the power needed to solidify a top 10 finish and make a run for another win on the NHRA Full Throttle tour, his last coming midway through the 2009 season at Englishtown, NJ.

"We're excited to be able to add Craig Treble to the team for the rest of this year," commented Brogdon, "and we're discussing the 2011 season and beyond as well. We've known Craig for several years from his competing on the division level with us and he brings a tremendous drive to win to the Attitude Apparel team. Craig is a racer's racer, he has done so much with limited resources over the years, we know that he has all of the capabilities needed to put the 'Pistonator' in the winner's circle."
