MILLINGTON, Tenn. -- The U.S. Army today announced the decision to step away from its Pro Stock Motorcycles Don Schumacher Racing sponsorship agreement after the 2007 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series season.

"Given the great pride the program brings our soldiers and everyone associated with the U.S. Army Pro Stock Motorcycles, this was not an easy decision to make," said Col. David Lee, Director of Strategic Communications. "We do, however, remain committed to NHRA and its fans who continue to support our program and soldiers and look forward to continuing our sponsorship of the DSR Top Fuel team.

"We want to thank Angelle Sampey, Antron Brown, Steve Tartaglia and the members of the Pro Stock Motorcycle team, as well as the entire Don Schumacher Racing organization, for their professionalism and their performances on behalf of the U.S. Army. We also want to thank all of the fans who support the U.S. Army Racing program, and wish both Angelle and Antron the best of luck moving forward. We are proud of our teams and the effort put forth by the riders and crew throughout our relationship."
