Chase Black ready for sophomore MotoAmerica Junior Cup season… he joins Pure Attitude Racing in 2022
Pure Attitude Racing is delighted to announce that in addition to competing in both the MotoAmerica Supersport and Twins Cup championships in 2022, they will field Chase Black in the Junior Cup category.
No stranger to Junior Cup, where they finished on the podium in 2019, the team are excited to return to the class and to welcome Chase into their family. Chase will embark on his Pure Attitude Racing Academy journey for the upcoming season early in the new year.
Black, who has progressed through the MotoAmerica ranks in recent years, firstly in the Mini Cup by Motul, finished a credible fifteenth overall in last year’s Junior Cup series achieving a season’s best of eighth during the season finale at Barber Motorsports Park. His target for 2022 is to run consistently in the top five.
In addition to competing on track with Pure Attitude Racing, Black will also benefit from a range of off-track initiatives all designed and aimed to create the total all round racer.
Chase Black: “Signing to ride with Pure Attitude Racing is like a dream come true. I honestly believe that together we can be consistently in the top five and even fight for the top three and I cannot wait to get started. I have seen great things from the team already and I know that they will get me to where I want to be. With a year under my belt, I now know the tracks so I am not riding blind anymore and I will have team mates that will help me which is great. The team believe in me, and I will really try to make it onto the podium to repay the faith that Pure Attitude Racing have shown in me.”
Dean Standish – Team Owner: “By signing Chase for our Junior Cup program, Pure Attitude Racing is one step closer to achieving our long-term goals. Our aim is to nurture young riders from the very beginning of their careers both on and off track, and hopefully take them all the way to the top. We spoke to Chase several times during the 2021 season, and we know that he comes from a good family, who see the value in what we are doing within Pure Attitude Racing. He is a great kid with a bright future, and we are really looking forward to working with him and seeing him improve on his performances to date.”
Further rider and partner announcements for 2022 will be made in due course.
