Mid-Season Bounty Placed on Dustin Lee

Platinum General Services & Kopac Fleet Repair, but what do they have to do with the most talked about sportsman motorcycle drag racing program in history? These two New Jersey based businesses have been the title sponsor of the highly competitive BAMF program for the last three years. Platinum General Services (PGS) is a commercial construction company overseen by Ralphie Navarro and Kopac Fleet Repair is a commercial trucking repair and maintenance facility overseen by Saul Navarro.

Both Ralphie & Saul are avid motorsports fans, from motorcycle land speed racing and drag racing to off road riding with friends and family. Thrill, speed, power, are just a few of the things that flows through the Navarro brother’s bloodline. When Ralphie first heard about the newly created BAMF competition, one which was to determine the nation’s best sportsman motorcycle racer he was immediately intrigued. So much so that he decided to have PGS sponsor the second & third years of competition with a very generous contribution to the winner’s purse.

This year, it was Kopac Fleet Repair stepping up to the plate with a title sponsor worthy donation to the winner’s fund. With many racers having their own large tow vehicles (and some even larger trucking related businesses) it was a great fit for Kopac Fleet Repair and another amazing contribution to the sport that we all love dearly, motorcycle drag racing.

Ralpie and Saul Navarro

Ralphie Navarro had this to say, “I love the sport of motorcycle drag racing and I thoroughly enjoy watching the pro classes, like Top Fuel, Pro Stock, & Pro Street. Those racers and classes get a lot of spotlight and for good reason, they spend the big bucks and race the fastest and quickest machines. But, the sportsman racers also spend their hard-earned money without as much spotlight. That’s why I’ve been so supportive of this program, even if our businesses are not directly tied to the sport. This program spotlights the racers and gives them a great year-end bonus. I’m hoping more motorcycle oriented businesses step up and boost the program every year.”

As racers, these sponsors know the expense to compete for championships.

The BAMF competition has without a doubt brought out an unseen level of competition since its inception and has certainly encouraged racers to get out and race more. For the last two years, the man to beat has been Dustin Lee. Well, for the third year in a row, he is still the man to beat half way through the racing season. Platinum General Services is now offering an incentive to anyone who can dethrone the two-time champ with a $1,000 bounty put directly on Dustin Lee. “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed watching the program since its inception and Dustin is one hell of a racer, but I felt like we needed to light a fire with the competition and honestly who doesn’t like the idea of more money,” said Ralphie Navarro.

“If Lee pulls off a triple championship for the third year in a row, the $1,000 bonus will roll into the 2018 BAMF program. Someone will get this cash being posted by Platinum General Services,” said owner Brandi Neithamer. “We are excited for the BAMF program to be in its fourth year and very thankful for all the sponsors that support the program. We’re looking forward to an exciting finish to the season, especially with the added incentive of the bounty.”
