In addition to their line of KTMs, they have paired up with Husaberg and Genuine Dirt Racer of Wilkesboro, NC to include a 2009 FE450 and FE570 as part of the rental fleet, both of which will be available for race use at round three in Morganton.

"We're thrilled to have the green light to attend the entire series and make available our Husaberg and KTM race rentals for the 2009 GNCC schedule," said David Tenenbaum, owner of Ben Jacob Designs.  "With the addition of the two 'Bergs, we continue to provide GNCC racers with top quality machines and a 'factory' race experience and the chance to test ride, or "test race" two brand new models.  We look forward to putting our riders on the podium and helping them have the most enjoyable racing experience without any of the hassle of hauling or maintaining their own machine."
