Team Babbitt's 2010 AMA Arenacross
Series Championship Sweep Best in History
"The over the top commitment delivered by team manager
Denny Bartz and owner Eddie Babbitt's gave us everything we needed to
win," commented Demuth
If Team Babbitt's 2010 arenacross season was scripted as an upcoming
blockbuster movie it would be dismissed as being far too freakishly
far-fetched. No one team could so totally dominate a championship series
- could they? Believe it. The record books have been rewritten - Team
Babbitt's trifecta sweep of the Arenacross Championship podium will go
down as best team finish in AMA history.
The 2010 Arenacross Championship was Josh Demuth's third,
but his first ever as a part of a team podium sweep
The last race of the 2010 AMA Arenacross season has been contested and
with it Team Babbitt's "Dream Team" experienced a near flawless season
of wins and triumphs. When the dust settled at Denver Coliseum, site of
the last race, Team Babbitt's owned not only first place with Josh
Demuth (his third AMA Arenacross Championship), but also second with
Chad Johnson, and third place with Tyler Bowers.
"The over the top commitment delivered by team manager Denny Bartz and
owner Eddie Babbitt's gave us everything we needed to win. I couldn't
have asked for a better team to ride for and be represented by. I'm sure
Bowers and Johnson would agree," commented Josh Demuth.
Some of the team's other 2010 highlights include 18 out of 19 main event
wins, 42 podiums out of 57, and six podium sweeps. Babbitt's also
locked up the Arenacross East and West Coast Lites Champions with Dano
Aulseybrook and AJ Catanzaro, respectively.
"I have always dreamed of having a podium sweep, but never a
Championship ending podium sweep, the feeling is almost impossible to
describe," remarked team owner Eddie Babbitt's. "The whole team is
pumped, each rider is proud to have been a part of such a successful
season, great bikes and a great run program with awesome sponsors have
made it all come together."
Babbitt's says that being prepared well in advance of the season opener
and working with solid sponsors that he can count on all contributed to
the kind of stellar season the team had.
"Congratulations to Demuth, Johnson and Bowers. They made my dreams come
true, I couldn't have asked for a better team this year," explains
Babbitt's. "Our sponsors truly stepped up as well, giving us the ability
to provide nothing but excellence to our riders, we came in prepared,
our bikes were built of perfection and we showed a Kawasaki factory
presence every weekend. With this level of dedication we delivered a
championship title to our sponsors. K&N has been behind us since
2006 (parts KA-2506

How do you follow-up on a season like this and how do you motivate the
team to strive for even greater goals?
"Well I think the motivation comes natural and I don't know what we
could do better next year this was almost a perfect season, so to sweep
could be quite difficult, but to win the Championship - we look forward
to repeating in 2010," expressed a very confident Babbitt's.
