GLEN HELEN NOT WITHOUT ITS CHALLENGES FOR RCH SOARING EAGLE/JIMMY JOHN’S/ SUZUKI FACTORY RACING
Roczen Earns First Podium of Outdoor Season
SAN BERNADINO, Calif. (May 26, 2015) – RCH Soaring Eagle/Jimmy John’s/Suzuki Factory Racing riders Ken Roczen and Broc Tickle raced to fourth- and 13th-place overall finishes in Saturday’s Lucas Oil Pro Motocross FMF Glen Helen National at Glen Helen Raceway.
Roczen’s solid outing propelled the German rider from 12th to sixth in the Pro Motocross Championship standings. Tickle’s day was full of challenges but despite finishing 12th and 15th in each of the day’s 450 motos, the rider of RCH’s No. 20 Suzuki RM-Z450 still sits 10th in points with 10 races left.
After fighting his way through last week’s outdoor season opener with an ailing back, Roczen rebounded by posting the fastest lap of Saturday morning’s qualifying session and looked to be in winning form before the gate dropped on the first 450 moto of the day.

CHALLENGES ASIDE, RCH SOARING EAGLE/JIMMY JOHN’S/SUZUKI FACTORY RACING HANGS TOUGH AT HANGTOWN
ORANGEVALE, Calif. (May 19, 2015) – In the hard-knock world of professional motocross, just about anything can happen. It’s certainly no secret that over time, wear and tear on the body comes with the territory and sometimes injuries can crop up without warning.
For Ken Roczen, the defending Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series Champion, Hangtown was a beacon after a frustrating 2015 Monster Energy Supercross campaign. Roczen spent half the indoor season sidelined with an ankle injury but the German rider never lost sight of the outdoor opener when he could finally blow the dust off and return to championship form.
Unfortunately, a little less than a week prior to Round 1, Roczen irritated a pre-existing back injury, which ultimately hampered his efforts at Hangtown. Still, despite being slowed by the pain that’s common to a back injury, Roczen rallied from a 19th-place finish in Saturday’s first moto to record a gritty top-five effort in the second 450 moto of the day.
“This weekend was a tough one,” said Roczen following the event. “So, it turns out I have a stress fracture in my back which, I struggled. I hadn’t ridden since last Thursday (May 7). Coming to Hangtown, I didn’t know if I would be able to ride or not. I struggled big-time. The track was gnarly and if you’re not riding for eight or nine days and you come straight to that, it’s really tough to get in a rhythm. But, we managed to get some points in the second moto.”
Rockford Fosgate sponsored Casey Currie to bring his 4 Wheel Drive King of the Hammers Jeep to the Baja 500 Trophy Truck Class.
Casey Currie’s King of the Hammers straight axle Jeep performed so well this year, that he has decided to run it at the premier 2015 SCORE Baja 500 race in June. This marks the first time Casey will be racing in the Trophy Truck class.
Casey will be racing with his uncle, John Currie, who has competed and won many championships and races. They will be splitting the driving duties and as a team, John and Casey the technical know-how and the racing acumen to face the challenge the SCORE Baja 500 has.
RCH SOARING EAGLE/JIMMY JOHNS/SUZUKI FACTORY RACING BACK TO FULL STRENGTH FOR LUCAS OIL PRO MOTOCROSS SEASON
Roczen Ready to Defend 2014 Championship
CHINO HILLS, Calif. (May 14, 2015) – It’s incredible what a difference two weeks can make. Two weeks. That’s the amount of time RCH Soaring Eagle/Jimmy Johns/Suzuki Factory Racing had to regroup in between the 17-race Monster Energy Supercross season and the 2015 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.
Two weeks ago, RCH was a rider down and Broc Tickle was carrying the flag alone, trying to close out a vexing indoor season. Teammate Ken Roczen was still hampered by an ankle injury that kept him sidelined for almost half the Supercross campaign. While the indoor season had its share of successes, including a pair of wins for Roczen before he was injured, it also fell far short of the championship expectations the Suzuki Factory team set for itself.
But just two weeks later, a new outdoor season offers a renewed sense of enthusiasm as Roczen returns to the RCH lineup aboard the No. 1 RM-Z450 to defend his 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.

May 13, 2015 Chandler, AZ — Team DragonFire lights up the night! Looking to beat the heat, Rounds 5 & 6 of Lucas Oil AZ Regionals were held at night under the lights at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park this past weekend. The spotlight was on DragonFire in both UTV Unlimited and Production 1000 classes as the team pulled off a clean sweep of both classes! Defending Unlimited Class champ Ken Benson switched up to Production 1000 for this season, and made the move pay off splitting wins with the DragonFire newcomer Bobby VanBeekum, while long-time DragonFire supported racer Hans Waage swept the Unlimited class in Benson's absence.
TICKLE, RCH SOARING EAGLE/JIMMY JOHNS/SUZUKI FACTORY RACING CLOSE OUT SUPERCROSS CAMPAIGN WITH TOP 10 IN LAS VEGAS
LAS VEGAS (May 4, 2015) – In a season highlighted by a litany of top 10s, it was only appropriate that Broc Tickle, rider of the No. 20 RCH Soaring Eagle/Jimmy Johns/Suzuki Factory Racing RM-Z450, closed out the 2015 Monster Energy Supercross season, an FIM World Championship, with a 10th-place finish in Saturday night’s season finale at Sam Boyd Stadium.
The top-10 effort was Tickle’s 13th in 15 450SX races this season and when the dust settled Saturday night, the Holly, Mich., rider was eighth in the season-ending Monster Energy Supercross Championship point standings.
Rockford Fosgate teamed up with Lucas Oil for their hospitality travel rig. You can experience the comfort and sound quality of this rig at one of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship venues this year.

TICKLE, RCH SOARING EAGLE/JIMMY JOHNS/SUZUKI JUST MISS TOP 10 AT LEVI’S STADIUM
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (April 20, 2015) – Broc Tickle’s streak of consecutive top-10 finishes came to an unfortunate conclusion, at nine, after an incident with just two laps to go left the RCH Soaring Eagle/Jimmy Johns/Suzuki Factory Racing rider 11th in the final rundown of Saturday night’s Monster Energy Supercross race at Levi’s Stadium.
Tickle was competitive throughout the program and raced as high as eighth but lost the handle on his Suzuki RM-Z450 after getting together with Justin Barcia in the late goings of the main event to come up one spot short of extending his streak.
Despite just missing out on a top 10, the Holly, Mich., rider holds down eighth in the 450SX championship point standings. With two races remaining on the 2015 schedule, Tickle trails seventh-place Jason Anderson by 20 and is just 22 back from Blake Baggett in sixth.

ROCZEN’S INJURIES TO KEEP RCH SOARING EAGLE/JIMMY JOHNS/SUZUKI FACTORY RIDER OUT FOR REMAINDER OF MONSTER ENERGY SUPERCROSS SEASON
Tickle Optimistic for Inaugural Event at Levi’s Stadium
CHINO HILLS, Calif. (April 16, 2015) – Ken Roczen, rider of the No. 94 Suzuki RM-Z450 for RCH Soaring Eagle/Jimmy Johns/Suzuki Factory Racing, will miss the remaining three Monster Energy Supercross races on the 2015 schedule.
Roczen, his physicians and management team, along with RCH co-owners Carey Hart and Ricky Carmichael made the collective decision for the 20-year-old to sit out the rest of the Supercross season to provide him sufficient time to heal completely and be ready to defend his 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross title.
Roczen suffered a left-ankle injury February 21 at the Georgia Dome. The German rider raced with the injury at both rounds in Atlanta before re-aggravating his ankle at Daytona in March where he was ultimately sidelined. He was originally scheduled to return to competition last weekend in Houston.
TICKLE, RCH SOARING EAGLE/JIMMY JOHNS/SUZUKI FACTORY RACING EIGHTH IN HOUSTON.
Broc Tickle continued his reign as the king of consistency after logging a respectable eighth-place finish in Saturday night’s Monster Energy Supercross, an FIM World Championship, at NRG Stadium.
The solid effort was Tickle’s ninth straight and 11th overall top-10 finish of the season. The solid ride powered the Holly, Mich., resident from ninth to eighth in points with three races remaining on the 2015 Supercross schedule.

TICKLE, RCH SOARING EAGLE/JIMMY JOHNS/SUZUKI FACTORY RACING NINTH IN ST. LOUIS
ST. LOUIS (March 30, 2015) – For the most part, peaks and valleys or highs and lows are a way of life when your office is a Monster Energy Supercross race and your counterparts are the best riders and support personnel in the world.
At its peak, the 2015 season represented victory and consistency for RCH Soaring Eagle/Jimmy Johns/Suzuki Factory Racing. Ken Roczen, rider of the team’s No. 94 Suzuki RM-Z450, opened the year with a win, a runner-up finish and another win. Roczen’s RCH teammate Broc Tickle kick- started 2015 with an eighth and a 12th at Anaheim and Phoenix but turned the corner back in Anaheim with a top five in Round 3.
Rockford Fosgate sponsored Casey Currie Dialed in at Lake Elsinore and Ready for Rounds 3 & 4 in Phoenix.
CORONA, California – The 2015 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) officially began in Lake Elsinore on March 20 and Casey Currie had a solid start to the season. Finishing 9th and 5th, Casey goes into Rounds 3 & 4 in Phoenix with a strong points foundation and a dialed-in truck.
Despite Adversity, Plenty of Positives for RCH Soaring/Eagle/Jimmy Johns/Suzuki Factory Racing At Daytona Supercross.
While there may have been a little hitch in their collective giddy-up heading into the main event, there was plenty of pep in the RCH Soaring Eagle/Jimmy Johns/Suzuki Factory Racing team’s step when the checkered flag flew in Saturday night’s Daytona Supercross by Honda at Daytona International Speedway.
With his RCH stablemate Ken Roczen sidelined for the night after re-injuring his ankle in the day’s first practice session, it was up to Broc Tickle to carry the torch for RCH in Daytona and he did exactly that.
Despite getting together with Trey Canard in the first corner and essentially starting dead last, Tickle rallied for an admirable 10th-place finish.
