Keeran Racing and Baker Racing to Support Andrew Luker in 2019
Posted on behalf of Keeran Racing
CONCORD, CA. (January 11, 2019) - Keeran Racing and Baker Racing sponsored by Chris Baker Hay Sales will provide American Flat Track rider Andrew Luker with the opportunity to compete full time in both the AFT Singles and AFT Production Twins classes in 2019 on Kawasaki machines.
Keeran Racing has been supporting the racing efforts of Luker since 2017. Keeran Racing and Baker Racing have partnered to create a consistently-branded Kawasaki race program. Baker Racing’s commitment to providing competitive equipment in all classes provides potential for Luker to enter the AFT Twins class in the future.
“My wife Jeanie and I are excited to see what Andrew can do for Baker Racing,” said Chris Baker, owner of Baker Racing. “I love racing but can’t commit the time that is needed to run my own team - partnering with Keeran Racing fills that gap.”
“Chris is a racer just like I am, so he gets it,” said Kevin Keeran, Co-Owner of Keeran Racing. “He understands what the needs of the team are. We all have the same goal, go out and win races. This will be my third season as Andrew’s mechanic, we have experience working together on Kawasaki Twins so we are familiar with what works for Andrew’s riding style. Having Baker Racing join Keeran Racing in 2019 definitely gives Andrew a great shot at a championship!”
“Chris Baker works with Alan Rodenborn at Racing Unlimited when it comes to his twins. I feel confident I can get the job done in the AFT Production Twins class on these machines,” said Luker. “As for my 450 program, I am more confident now than I was in 2018. With a new bike built by a proven engine builder all that’s left is for me to do my job. I’m very excited for 2019 and thankful for all the people that contribute to my program.”
