Team Green Plans 25th Anniversary Celebration

Kit Palmer | April 4, 2006

The following is a release from Kawasaki Team Green:

Where were you a quarter of a century ago?

Ronald Reagan was President, “Raiders of the Lost Ark” premiered in movie theaters, and the space shuttle launched for the first time. And Kawasaki founded its amateur trackside support program known as Team Green. These moments in time provide opportunities to reflect, as well as to look forward while commemorating this significant occasion for the Kawasaki “family.” To mark this special milestone, Team Green is requesting information from all Team Green riders and staff – past and present – describing their racing and lifestyle. Kawasaki is extremely gratified that so many racers and their families have enjoyed their experience with Team Green; they are offering a special gift to all who participate in the gathering of historical information.

Kawasaki is also extending an invitation to all former Team Green riders and staff to join them at Team Green’s 25th Anniversary Celebration at the AMA Amateur National Championships, August 1-5 at Loretta Lynn’s ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.

To confirm your participation either by providing historical information or attending the celebration, please contact Kawasaki at (949) 770-0400, ext. 2226, or you can send an e-mail to Please put “25 years” in the subject line. Deadline for sending information and attendance confirmation is July 1st.

As always, Kawasaki extends a sincere thanks to all riders and staff for their continuing loyalty and support of Team Green and encourages everyone to participate in the 25th Anniversary Celebration.
