MT. AYR, IA – TiLube, the high-performance motorsports lubricants brand with 17 years of racing history, will support privateer Supercross racers Broc Tickle and Kyle Chisholm through the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross Championship Series. Tickle, the 2011 Western Regional 250 Supercross Champion and Chisholm, the 2006 Canadian 250 Eastern Region Champion and 2011 King of Bercy, are both veterans of the sport who are capable of running at the front of the pack in the highly competitive 450 SX division. The unique arrangement between TiLube and the two popular riders will see each of their independent race efforts joined together under the TiLube awning starting with this weekend’s Anaheim One Supercross, held inside Angels Stadium of Anaheim.
“We teamed up with TiLube to run our own programs out of the same truck, which will allow us to share some of the costs associated with a high-caliber racing effort,” said Chisholm who will field a Team CHIZ/Rockriver Yamaha YZ450F. “In a short amount of time, I’ve been able to put together a competitive machine with great backing, and I am looking forward to what 2020 will bring.”
Tickle, meanwhile, will make a highly anticipated return to competition at the February 15 Tampa Supercross, aboard a BT20/AEO Powersports Husqvarna FC 450. “I’ve stayed sharp throughout my time away from racing and I can’t wait to get back behind the starting gate,” said Tickle. “I honestly feel stronger than ever, as I am completely healthy and anxious to compete. Kyle and I have been great friends for many years and this is going to be a fun season.”
