Shane McElrath is one of the new members of the Smartop/Bullfrog Spas/MotoConcepts Honda Racing Team for 2021.

“I look forward to working with Shane as I think MCR’s top level-management and bike development team are going to allow him to succeed in what can often be a challenging period as a rider transitions from one class to another,” said MCR Team Owner, Mike Genova.

MCR Team Manager Tony Alessi, said, “Benny’s display of speed and whoop strength in the final rounds of the 2020 season allowed us to see the raw talent he possesses. We feel the MCR program will allow him improved starts, which will help put him up front, and the speed he possesses will keep him up front.”

As far as the outdoor Nationals, the team says it is committed to participating in some or all of the 2021 AMA Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series should rider health and world conditions allow.” CN
