MotoAmerica: Corey Alexander to run stunning 9/11 tribute

1 of 3

MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 rider and New York native Corey Alexander will run a stunning tribute to the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks this weekend as the American series finishes their season in New Jersey.

A native of the city, the superstock rider and his family-owned and run team will pay tribute to the city’s fire department, who lost hundreds of rescue workers in the attacks. Sunday’s race falls on the fifteenth anniversary of the tragedy, and the #RideHVMC Freeman Racing Ducati rider says the team felt they had to mark it.


"Every year, our home race at New Jersey Motorsport Park falls near September 11. This year, when we realized the dates aligned and race day fell on the 11th, we felt it was absolutely necessary to do something to really honour the brave men and women of the F.D.N.Y. Being a New Yorker my entire life, I can remember the exact day of the tragedy.

"At that time, I was only seven years old and didn't understand the magnitude of the events unfolding, but I continue to feel the impact they had on our city, state, and country. With the help of team painter Lance, Signs Ink, and Spidi Sport, I'm excited to bring our vision to life. It's a tremendous honour to showcase this special livery, and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do."
