D&D Sponsors Chris Carr Racing in 2009 – Being a 7-Time AMA Pro Grand National Champion with 78 wins in the series can bring a lot of pressure to a rider. And starting the season with a new racebike and a new manufacturer can ratchet that pressure up further.
In 2009 Carr begins his singles program with a new high-performance 450cc Honda. D&D Performance Enterprises stepped in with sponsorship by building a series of special race-tuned exhaust systems for his motorbikes.
These pipes are designed to modify torque and horsepower at different parts of the powerband. That allows Kenny Tolbert, Crew Chief, to custom fit the racebike to the track conditions.
And that eases the pressure of Carr thinking about his racebike performance and more on his competitors. For more on Chris Carr or D&D Performance Exhausts, pin the throttle on your mouse to www.danddexhaust.com.

The Issue of Motorcycle Chrome – In an unprecedented move that has put the motorcycle industry on alert, the Department of Transportation has passed a bill that intends to outlaw “chrome finishes that cover any engine, frame, or headlight assembly on new motorcycles.”*
“Chrome is the silent killer,” asserts DOT spokesman Melvin P. Meyers, “and if we can rid motorcycles– especially cruisers– of the shiny chrome that distracts motorists and causes accidents, our roads will be a safer place.”
Last year, Meyers earned the respect and bafflement of sportbike enthusiasts when he tried to pass an amendment that would have legalized wheelies, and the move to eliminate chrome has led one motorcycle advocacy group to proclaim that, “[Meyers] is not only trying to undermine the cruiser business, he’s also a closet crotch rocket junky who harbors a deep desire to see only sportbikes on public roads.”
