Following his extremely successful 2006 Supercross season in which he scored three main event wins, Josh Grant recently signed a renewed, two-year deal to remain on the Sobe/Samsung Mobile/Honda team through 2008.
"I'm really excited to sign on for another two years with the team, "said Josh of his new contract. "I talked briefly with a few other teams that were interested in me, but the whole time I was really hoping to stay where I am at right now. The team has been so good to me so far, and I feel really comfortable there. I have been riding their bikes forever, and feel very natural on the CRF. I was glad they stepped up to continue supporting me, and now I can concentrate on the upcoming outdoor season with no worries about contracts or teams for next year."
The new whip.
On the way home, Grant decided to celebrate by stopping into a Mercedes-Benz dealership to pick up a new ride. His model of choice? A white S550 sedan that he plans of tricking out with some new rims and other goodies.
Naveen Dassanayke will also continue to wrench for Josh as he contests both the SX and MX Lites titles for the next two years with the team. "Naveen has been really instrumental to my success, and I am glad that he will also continue to be a part of my program."
