Steve Rapp to compete in MotoGP

INDIANAPOLIS -- Steve Rapp will compete in the MotoGP class at the Red Bull Indianapolis GP.

Rapp will race on a wild-card entry fielded by Attack Performance. The Hawthorne, Calif., rider will join fellow United States riders Nicky Hayden, Ben Spies and Colin Edwards -- all full-time MotoGP competitors -- in Indy.

This will be the second time Rapp has raced at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He competed in the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 Series races last August during the Red Bull Indianapolis GP, finishing second in both races.

Rapp also will ride in the MotoGP class at the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix on July 27-29 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
