Bei Racing / Dunlop Development Scores A Podium Finish In The 8 Hours Of Texas

BEi Racing / Dunlop Development was able to finish in 3rd place at the first round of the new U.S. National Endurance Series presented by Lucas Oil during the "8 hours of Texas Endurance Race" hosted by CMRA at Texas World Speedway in College Station, TX on March 22nd. The team faced many issues right off the bat with all the riders but Dustin Dominguez needing some time to relearn and adapt to the bumpy Texas World Speedway layout. The rough surface caused issues with the team’s machinery with parts known to have been tightened coming loose and necessitating a switch to the "B" bike for the start of the race due to the fork seals leaking on the "A" bike.

Rules differences concerning pit stops slowed the team slightly and didn’t mesh with the team’s strategy of always having a fresh U.S. made Dunlop slick on the rear of the Suzuki GSX-R 1000. Later an issue with a failing fuel pump had the team swapping tanks during a stop. Despite all of this Sean Dwyer in his first race with the team, Tim Bemisderfer and Dustin Dominguez, also in his first ride with BEi, were able to celebrate on the podium with a 3rd place overall and 2nd in the Heavyweight class.

Billy Ethridge - BEi Racing / Dunlop Development team owner:

"I’m glad we were able to finish on the podium against the stiff competition at the first round of this new series. The CMRA put on a great show - I have to thank Dustin for riding the majority of the stints for the team. Sean is proving to be a good endurance rider and I can always count on Tim. I also have to thank my volunteer crew as well as Dunlop for all of their support."

Tim Bemisderfer - BEi Racing / Dunlop Development rider:

"It was great to be able to race in Texas again with the CMRA - an organization that my wife Aimee and her family have had a long and rich history with. I’m looking forward to the next round at NOLA where there is not as much local track knowledge."

BEi Racing / Dunlop Development would like to thank their sponsors for the 2014 season: Dunlop Tires, Suzuki, Vesrah Brakes, MCJ Motorsports, Thermosman Suspension, Spiegler Brake lines, Arai Helmets, Vanson Leathers, Sidi Boots, Yoshimura, JRi Shocks, Motonation, Pit Bull, RK Racing Chain, Super Signs, American Supercamp, DYNOJET, Dion Device and Chicken Hawk Racing.
