Zach Osborne Wins Moates Cup at Glen Helen GP… Again

Zach Osborne from Bike-it Cosworth Wild Wolf Yamaha was awarded with the special Marty Moates Cup this weekend in Glen Helen for being the best American classified rider in the Monster Energy Grand Prix of the USA. The American rider also won it last year, so he will be able to keep it one more season until the 2012 USGP is celebrated.

The Marty Moates Cup is a special trophy created last year to commemorate the coming back of the USGP after 11-year absence. The name of the trophy stands for the first American rider who won the USGP back in 1980 at Carlsbad. The trophy comes together with a 5000-dollar cheque sponsored by Lucas Oil.

Ricky Johnson, who was the last American winner of the USGP before Zach Osborne in 2010, Glen Helen Raceway, its President Bud Feldkamp, former GP winner Brad Lackey, Veteran rider Dough Dubach, Producer Todd Huffman and Resmarket President Scott Cox were all involved in the creation of such trophy in 2010 and they were very glad to present it again this year.
