R2B2 Motors Signs On as Associate Sponsor for Matt Guidera



SAN ANTONIO, Texas --

Peggy Llewellyn
R2B2 Motors owner Roger Burgess has added NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Peggy Llewellyn to his team for three more races and announced that R2B2 Motors will be an associate sponsor on Matt Guidera's Mohegan Sun motorcycle in his run for the championship.

Llewellyn's good performance at the recent Mac Tools U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis prompted Burgess to extend the relationship through events at Dallas, Las Vegas and Pomona, Calif. She finished fourth in 2007, winning at Dallas, the NHRA race closest to her San Antonio home.

Idled for months, Llewellyn returned at Indianapolis, changed her riding style in three days and qualified 14th in field of 27 motorcycles on the Guidera team motorcycle. She lost to eventual race runner-up Andrew Hines in the opening round.

"Peggy is a good spokesperson for the sport and we are happy she'll be with us again in Dallas," said Burgess. "We also were impressed with Matt's team and how well they worked together. I knew they could use additional support as he begins his run for the championship, so R2B2 Motors stepped up with an associate sponsorship to help Matt in the Countdown to 1."

"I am thrilled to run more races," said Llewellyn. "We learned a lot in Indianapolis that will help my riding. I am looking forward to returning at Dallas, my home track, and trying to repeat my success."

Guidera has two wins this season and is sixth as NHRA begins its Countdown to 1 playoff series in the inaugural Carolinas Nationals at the new zMax Dragway, Sept. 11-14.
