Evans Powersports Summer Intern Program

Posted on

We brought Damon Rummel on for the summer to help with market research after AmPro Yamaha rider Josh Toth had recommended him as a reliable fellow. His racing history and current pursuit of a law degree made him unique among the applicants.

It’s been good getting to know Damon and helping him get geared up for his work with us this summer. Part of his training included changing his new CRF250 over to Powersports Coolant in the parking lot behind the corporate headquarters. Opportunities shift however, and later he found a better deal on a new KTM. The bike he took to the track was al stock and didn’t even have Evans Coolant in it! It’s OK, that was just one of over ten bikes that we swapped fluids in over the race weekend. Emilia from the corporate office helped out on the conversions because it’s important to us that everyone in the company gets out to the races. There’s no market research better than mixing with the racers and enthusiasts and getting your hands dirty.

Damon went out in the 250A race and showed us how it’s done with a great 4th place finish! If you know the GNCC, you know that 250A is super competitive and 3 hours is a looong time. That’s actually an incredible finish for someone who hasn’t been out training much! Way to go Damon! Of course, like everyone else, he was back at work the next day, just with a little less use of his hands.
