Spoke with some representatives today with Anhueser- Busch in St Louis Mo. This was regarding a potential sponsor opportunity with the Budweiser beer brand. The people in St. Louis where very positive and helpful and highly supportive of a possible sponsorship deal for our AMA Pro Road Racing sportbike rider Walt Sipp.

They suggested that I contact my local bottling wholesaler distributor here in Lawrence Kansas. This is perhaps where a local in person talks and negotiations may take place for such a sponsorship with Budweiser. I ( B.J. De Jong of bearracing) have been in contact with the local Budweiser facility here in Lawrence Kansas. We will continue to seek further information regarding this potential opportunity for our professional road racing team. Please check back for more news regarding this deal and any other further news we might have as our quest for sponsorship continues.

About B.J.

Bearracing Facts: Name: Bertus De Jong AKA B.J. Nick Name: Bear Date of Birth: November 17th 1978 Birth Place: Westminster, California (Huntington Beach, Ca.) area Residence: Lawrence, Kansas Email: bearracing@yahoo.com Personal Info: Been riding motorcycles since I was 5 years old... Nothing professional and mainly on the dirt. I have been riding on dirt till about the age of 16. Road my first Harley Sportster in 1994. Got little seat time on some bikes my Step Dad owned now and then. Hadn’t been on a bike since 1999 when the family moved away. In 2008 I decided it was time for a bike again. This time my own! In July of 2008 I bought a Buell XB12R Firebolt. The first time I ever sat on one or even sat on a bike in 10 years. I rode it home and all those great motorcycle feelings came right back like it was yesterday. 2 weeks later there was a Moto-St race at Heartland Park Topeka Kansas. A race track facility just a few miles from my house. I decided to ride my new Buell to the track and check out the race. There I met a great Buell racing team by the name of James Gang Racing. Paul James, Jeff Johnson, the awesome crew chief Mike Kirkpatrick, General Manager John Dahmer. They treated like they had known me for years. All because I was not part of the Buell family. From there on out, the rest is history which you can read more about me in this site.
