After finishing fifth in points in the 2015 MotoAmerica SuperBike series, Elena Myers Court, the only woman to win a professional motorsports race at Daytona International Speedway, has shifted gears.
When she decided not to race in the upcoming MotoAmerica season, she was looking for opportunities to remain involved with the industry. It quickly became clear that if she wasn’t going to race, Myers Court would be a great asset to the McGraw Powersports sales team.
“Elena is a great spokesperson for our brand, she has credibility in the industry and brings the right experience to our service contract business with our dealerships,” said John Chu, chief executive officer of McGraw Powersports.
She will be responsible for managing the McGraw Powersports dealership network in the Northwest.
“I’m very excited about my new role with McGraw Powersports,” she said. “Working with McGraw last year on my racing program, I really enjoyed being an advocate for the company. I was looking for a career separate from racing, and I’m excited for this new challenge which keeps me very much involved in the motorcycle world.”
Myers Court will be starting in the field in March.
