American Beta has signed off road specialists Cory Buttrick for the 2014 season. Buttrick will campaign Beta two stroke for the AMA/Rekluse National Enduro Series. The 22 year old from Logan, Ohio is looking forward to next year as he is healthy and ready for the season. Buttrick will ride a specially prepared Factory Beta 300 RR and will join Beta teammate Justin Sode at the season opener in South Carolina on March 2nd. He will also contest a few select GNCC’s aboard a Beta 450 RR 4 stroke.
“I’m very honored to have this opportunity to represent Beta and give them the recognition they deserve in the United States. This is the first time I have been 100% healthy since the end of 2010, so I have my goals set on a championship.” Buttrick explains.
Buttrick’s race bikes will be built at the American Beta headquarters with the suspension being tuned by Stillwell Performance.
Beta’s Tim Pilg explains, “We are super pumped to have Cory on our team. I have watched him for a few years and saw the potential for sure. He is hungry to win and that is what we need in the Enduro series. I feel with Cory on our 300 and Justin on the 250, we have a great chance of turning some heads out there. We have a very complete team, with Cody Webb and Max Gerston on the West coast, Ron Purvines and his team in the desert, and Justin and Cory in the East, it will help show our future customers that Beta is here to stay.”
