Rocket Exhaust is pleased to announce that PJ Larsen will be racing a specially prepared 2013 CRF450R at the Monster Energy Cup this weekend sponsored by Rocket Exhaust and Race SoCal. PJ's 2013 season ended early with a knee injury and he has been back on a bike for the last two months.
PJ Larsen "I was asked by Rocket Exhaust to help test their single and dual exhausts for the new Honda and of course I was eager to ride the new bike. I immediately felt comfortable on the Honda, I loved the chassis but the motor was pretty flat. The Rocket systems I tested really woke the bike up and I thought to myself that this bike would be competitive. I spoke to Don at Rocket and Stephen Heighton at Race SoCal, who owns the bikes, and we struck a one race deal for the MEC. Since then Rocket has built up the motor and it rips. I feel really comfortable on the 450 and am looking forward to this weekend".
Don Leib "It's been a whirlwind month since we decided to build a bike for PJ but I know that designing an engine and exhaust system to satisfy a rider of his caliber will give us a head start on our development. I'm really looking forward to the MEC this weekend. Having Weston Peick running our exhaust and race motor, Brady Kiesel in the A/B class racing Michael Leib's SX bike and PJ Larsen debuting our carbon/carbon dual exhaust and race motor will give us plenty to cheer for. We're also using this coming weekend to kick off the introduction of our new design exhaust system which we have been working on for the past six months.
