Mototalk to sponsor Dowd at Steel City




In an unprecedented industry move, the people have spoken! They said “let’s join together and sponsor one of the nice guys of our sport, John Dowd, on the Steel City leg of his Farewell Tour”. Organized by Mototalker John MacGugan, over 100 of Dowdy fans, friends and members of Mototalk got together and rose over $5,000.00 to become his title sponsor for the Steel City National. Dowd’s title sponsor for the weekend will be, MOTOTALK - By the people, for the people.

John MacGugan who has been organizing the donations said “This has been an overwhelming yet rewarding experience. I can’t believe the number of people that stepped up to support this effort. It has also been amazing to see and hear the kind words and fantastic experiences everyone has been sharing about John Dowd, his many great racing battles, his fan friendly attitude and his genuine nice guy persona.”

“This is one of the coolest things that’s ever happened in my career.” said Dowdy. “To be sponsored by my fans for one of my last Nationals makes me feel good about the way I handled myself throughout my career, hopefully I can reward them with a great finish.”

John would like to thank everyone who has sponsored Team JYD for a race this season, having a different sponsor for each weekend has made the team a little unique, has made it fun and has allowed some smaller companies and Individuals to get involved with my Team. Active8 Racing, Spectro Oils, Renthal, Pro Circuit, Racer X, Kicker Audio, Ricky Carmichael and Lobisser Building Corp. have all been sponsors this season.

Thanks to all the fans that have shown interest in sponsoring Team JYD. If you are interested in sponsoring the team, or need to contact John for any reason email Brian Berry at bberry@active8racing.com.
