EDR Performance has a new partnership with AMA roadracer Josh Galster, who will compete in the entire AMA Supersport series alongside Slednecks Racing teammate Misti Hurst. Both riders will race EDR Performance-prepped 2007 Kawasaki ZX6Rs.
"Josh is an awesome guy and is doing incredibly well in his first season of AMA racing," said EDR Performance?s Eric Dorn. "We are impressed with his accomplishments thus far and are excited to be able to provide some much needed support."
Galster began racing with the MRA in 2004 in Colorado, where he won the Rookie of the Year award despite having a stock SV 650, complete with a turkey-basting pan safety wired to the bike as his belly pan.
In 2005 and 2006 he raced the WERA West series and held the championship plates for Lightweight Twins, Superstock and Superbike for both years. For 2007, Galster bought a new Kawasaki ZX6R and won the C Superstock and B 750 Supersport Championships while also finishing third overall in C Superbike. He accomplished all this while maintaining a full-time coaching position at the California Superbike School.
This year, Galster takes on the AMA. "I am so excited about racing with the most elite riders in the country," he said. "I'm also thrilled about our partnership with EDR Performance. They have been supporting Misti since the middle of last year, and Eric was an awesome help at our most recent race weekend at Fontana."
EDR Performance brings more than 10 years of experience on the track and on the dyno to building winning motors, tuning EFI and providing professional trackside support. In 2006 EDR Performance took the No. 1 plate for WMRRA and also set three land speed records. During its first full year of operation, the company won 11 championships and both the OMRRA and WMRRA No. 1 plates.
