If Team Babbitt's 2010 arenacross season was scripted as an upcoming blockbuster movie it would be dismissed as being far too freakishly far-fetched. No one team could so totally dominate a championship series - could they? Believe it. The record books have been rewritten - Team Babbitt's trifecta sweep of the Arenacross Championship podium will go down as best team finish in AMA history.
"The over the top commitment delivered by team manager Denny Bartz and owner Eddie Babbitt's gave us everything we needed to win," commented Demuth
The 2010 Arenacross Championship was Josh Demuth's third, but his first ever as a part of a team podium sweep
The last race of the 2010 AMA Arenacross season has been contested and with it Team Babbitt's "Dream Team" experienced a near flawless season of wins and triumphs. When the dust settled at Denver Coliseum, site of the last race, Team Babbitt's owned not only first place with Josh Demuth (his third AMA Arenacross Championship), but also second with Chad Johnson, and third place with Tyler Bowers.
"The over the top commitment delivered by team manager Denny Bartz and owner Eddie Babbitt's gave us everything we needed to win. I couldn't have asked for a better team to ride for and be represented by. I'm sure Bowers and Johnson would agree," commented Josh Demuth.
Some of the team's other 2010 highlights include 18 out of 19 main event wins, 42 podiums out of 57, and six podium sweeps. Babbitt's also locked up the Arenacross East and West Coast Lites Champions with Dano Aulseybrook and AJ Catanzaro, respectively.
"I have always dreamed of having a podium sweep, but never a Championship ending podium sweep, the feeling is almost impossible to describe," remarked team owner Eddie Babbitt's. "The whole team is pumped, each rider is proud to have been a part of such a successful season, great bikes and a great run program with awesome sponsors have made it all come together."
Babbitt's says that being prepared well in advance of the season opener and working with solid sponsors that he can count on all contributed to the kind of stellar season the team had.
"Congratulations to Demuth, Johnson and Bowers. They made my dreams come true, I couldn't have asked for a better team this year," explains Babbitt's. "Our sponsors truly stepped up as well, giving us the ability to provide nothing but excellence to our riders, we came in prepared, our bikes were built of perfection and we showed a Kawasaki factory presence every weekend. With this level of dedication we delivered a championship title to our sponsors. K&N has been behind us since 2006 (parts KA-2506XD and KN-207) the performance and durability we gain with K&N products is second to none."
How do you follow-up on a season like this and how do you motivate the team to strive for even greater goals?
"Well I think the motivation comes natural and I don't know what we could do better next year this was almost a perfect season, so to sweep could be quite difficult, but to win the Championship - we look forward to repeating in 2010," expressed a very confident Babbitt's.
