Ben Townley Confirmed to Race USGP at Glen Helen

Posted:

Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / Honda rider Ben Townley has confirmed that he will line up for the GP at Glen Helen just one week away.

The former world champion and 250 supercross champion counts many of the GP riders and regulars as good friends. Ben spent the first part of his professional career touring the GP circuits before heading to America to chase AMA championships.

"I love the GP's," Ben explained enthusiastically. "Some of my best friends are over there racing that series and I was really looking forward to competing in the first few rounds this year. Unfortunately that didn't work out but I was pumped when I heard that they were bringing a round to America. I really enjoy the track at Glen Helen and I knew straight away that I was going to race it if I felt like I was ready. I'm really looking forward to it."

Glen Helen Raceway has made some significant changes to its facilities in the past weeks in lieu of a close call involving Townley himself. The world renowned facility has added flaggers for its popular open practice on Thursdays. In addition to that they have added two 40-minute sessions for pros only at 10:30 and 12:30 on Thursdays. The course itself is being reworked for the GP and, as always, will prove to be one of the most demanding tracks anywhere on the planet when the GP riders show up next weekend.

Fans attending the event are encouraged to stop by the Troy Lee Designs/ Lucas Oil/ Honda transporter to pick up a custom poster and say hello to Ben Townley.
