Trey Canard has inked a two-year deal with American Honda that will see the Oklahoman on the factory Honda CRF450R in the 2015 and 2016 AMA Supercross and 450 Pro Motocross Championships.
“I’m so excited to continue my long relationship with Honda for another two years,” Canard said. “The company, the team and everyone involved is really motivated about racing, and we’re all pushing hard and doing our best. I’ll continue to always give my best effort over these next two years, and we’re shooting for wins and championships. The enthusiasm around Honda right now is a really good thing that I’m excited to be a part of, and I think 2015 is going to be a great year for us.”
After sitting out the entire 2014 AMA Supercross series while recovering from a broken arm, Canard has made a notable comeback this summer in AMA Pro Motocross, regularly finishing on the podium. With three rounds remaining, he currently sits third in the 450cc championship point standings.
“We are very much looking forward to having Trey back with Honda for two more years,” said Ray Conway, Director of Racing at American Honda. “He has been with the company for his entire professional career, and he is a joy to work with. His performance this season, particularly in the Pro Motocross Championship, demonstrates his potential, and we’re expecting even better things from him in 2015 and ’16.”
