Doug Eichner to race KTM SX in 2010
KTM and Eichner Racing have announced a partnership for the 2010 WORCS and ITP QuadCross seasons in which Doug Eichner will compete aboard KTM SX ATVs. Eichner’s first race aboard the KTM 450 SX ATV will take place at the opening WORCS round at Speed World Raceway in Phoenix, Ariz., January 22 weekend.
“We are excited to have a talented, multi-time champion in that of Doug Eichner represent KTM here on the West Coast,” says KTM ATV Product Manager Chris Vogtman. “Eichner can still haul the mail and he’s well liked and very approachable at the track. And, with Eichner riding orange, there’s no doubt he’s still a championship threat.”
“Eichner Racing is excited to be hooked up with KTM and the fastest racing machines on the market,” says Eichner. “We know the machines have what it takes to be competitive out of the box and we look forward to a great 2010 season with KTM.
“I firmly believe KTM has the most ready to race product on the market and I like my chances this year.”
In addition to racing in the displacement limited 450 Pro class at WORCS and ITP QuadCross, Eichner will compete aboard a 505 SX ATV in the Open Pro class at select QuadCross events.
