Team Ohio Racing’s / Veterans Empowered Through Motorsports AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 racer, Pete Cline, will appear at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show, this weekend in Chicago, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. Cline and a Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) alumni crew-member, will be participating in The Pit Stop Challenge and signing posters, this Saturday at 12PM, 1PM, and 3PM.
WWP alumni crew member Sgt. Edward L. Stow (2-7 Cav, 1st Cavalry Division, U.S. Army) was on hand for the Cleveland IMS, signing posters with Cline. “My weekend with Pete at the Cleveland bike show was more than (I’d) expected.” Said Stow, who’d crewed for Team Ohio Racing’s AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 entry at the 2012 Mid-Ohio and Indianapolis GP rounds “The public’s response to what Team Ohio Racing are doing with veterans was amazing; just to be involved in all this is truly unbelievable!”
Cline added “Having Eddie on hand to participate, sign posters and talk to the crowd shows his belief in our program. As he stated, the crowd response in Cleveland was great. We are honored to have Eddie and his fellow WWP Alumni involved in our team. All our WWP crew members from 2012 are being given the opportunity to attend and represent the team at select events, including this weekend’s Chicago show, as well as the Indianapolis Dealer show.”
