McQueen Racing Is Born, to Sponsor TLD Honda Racing Team

Chad McQueen, the only son of the legendary racer and actor Steve McQueen, recently partnered with Troy Lee Designs to form McQueen Racing, a company which will develop and license performance motorsport products, custom motorcycle projects, and limited edition performance accessories.

McQueen Racing will announce the first limited edition motorsport and motorcycle projects later this year and will become a sponsor of Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda racing team.

"I am thrilled to work with Troy Lee Designs in the launch of McQueen Racing, and proud to support Troy Lee Designs racing team" said Chad McQueen, CEO of McQueen Racing. "Troy is a phenomenal artist, and completely gets the essence of McQueen Racing - the pursuit of pure performance, with an authentic yet stylish spirit. My dad taught me early on to work only with the best of the best - and Troy is the best artist I know."

"It is an honor to work with Chad on the launch of his company, and likewise to have McQueen Racing contribute to the success of our team," said Troy Lee, owner of Troy Lee Designs. "It's been great to witness Chad and his kids carry on the McQueen legacy of racing. I am looking forward to working with the next generation of the McQueen family, helping to develop products that celebrate their passion for racing."

Chad began racing dirt bikes at age 6 and by age 12, won his class at the World Mini Grand Prix. He went on to compete professionally in motorsports. His recovery after a crash during practice for the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona lead him to focus on developing custom car and motorcycle projects that resulted in the launch of McQueen Racing.
