(April 24, 2012) - Shayna Texter from the RLT Racing team has joined forces with DFW Honda that will see Shayna racing the DFW Honda CRF 450's in the 2012 AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com Pro Singles Championship. The relationship started right before Daytona where Shayna hopped on the DFW Honda 450 and put the bike in both of the main events with 11th and 12th place finishes. Daytona, a track where Texter usually struggles, marked a strong start to the series and the whole team was really happy with the results. Mark Lamb, owner of DFW Honda, had this to say. "We are very excited to be helping Shayna out this season. She comes from a good family and takes her racing very serious. She is a proven winner and she was the perfect choice for this season. I am really looking forward to a fun season."
DFW Honda is run by the Lamb Family and has dealerships based out of Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas. DFW Honda has been a supporter of 7x Grand National Champion Chris Carr the last couple seasons until his retirement last season. Shayna is very humbled to be flying the DFW Honda flag after a rider of Chris's caliber. "I can't thank the whole Lamb family enough for their support. I was so nervous about getting a deal together this late in the season, but DFW Honda has stepped up and they are giving me full support. Coming from a family business myself, I know how hard the Lamb family works and I look forward to a full season of hard work and success."
Shayna will also receive full support from RLT Racing, the team her and her brother started in 2010, as well as a bunch of great companies that currently support the team. Shayna currently sits 15th in points after the two rounds in Daytona. She is 9 points out of 2nd place and is training hard to put DFW Honda on top of the box through-out the season.
