Ref: New Ownership of Acadiana Racing LLC
Ryan and Katie Breaux of Rayne, LA have acquired Acadiana Racing LLC from Lucas and Jenny Comeaux. The purchase includes the Louisiana Cross-Country Series, the website www.AcadianaRacing.com, and everything else associated with the company. The upcoming LACC Round 5, Juderman’s Park, will still be run by the Comeaux’s and then the ownership transition will take place over the summer break. Outgoing owners will still be assisting behind the scenes for a period of time after Round 5 to ensure a smooth transition.
“When Jenny and I created this side hobby business several years ago we never imagined it would be this successful.” said Lucas Comeaux, outgoing company president. “I can’t thank everyone enough for helping out so much along the way. My loving wife, our awesome family members, title sponsor MTA, all of the core sponsors, website viewers, land-owners, event participants, volunteer staff, and talented media folks have helped with the success tremendously and we are very grateful. Our two oldest children are currently having a ball in the LACC Beginner PeeWee class and I’m looking forward to being able to race again myself on the new 2012 GasGas XC300. Having run a series like this for a few years gives a new appreciation for being able to show up to an event and just have FUN!”
Jenny Comeaux added, “The Breaux’s have been to every round since day 1 in 2009, are very familiar with the format, and are enthusiastic about taking this on. We are confident that they will continue to provide excellent promotion of the sport in Louisiana for many years to come. Lucas and I would like to give a very special thanks to our family members Bruce, Donna, Reese, and Mandy for all of their generous support.”
Through a main goal of promoting the sport in general, the LACC Series has quickly grown into one of the most exciting and well-attended regional race series in the country. This year in 2012 over sixty thousand dollars is up for grabs in cash and bike manufacturer contingency programs from Transmissions Inc., Honda, KTM, and Husqvarna. The AcadianaRacing.com website featuring daily news updates has landed over 175,000 distinct viewers since it’s creation and is currently averaging around 1,500 pages viewed per day.“We’re anxious and excited to start this new adventure and to keep the LACC Series growing”, Ryan Breaux expressed. “Overall, we plan to keep things very similar but will be changing to the 9am main event start time and will be brainstorming on other small improvements. We’re honored to have this opportunity to promote and give back to the sport that I’ve enjoyed for twenty plus years.
