Like the factory Fiat Yamaha Team, Monster Yamaha Tech 3 has announced that it will also be unveiling a special US Grand Prix livery later today (Thursday) at Laguna Seca.

Tech 3 is the only MotoGP team with an all-American rider line-up and with both Ben Spies and Colin Edwards calling Texas home, Tech 3 has earned the moniker 'Team Texas'.

The satellite squad's Laguna Seca livery will thus depict the red, white, and blue of the Texas state flag. The special graphic will also appear on each riders' leathers and on T-shirts worn by both riders.

"Both of our riders are really excited about being together on home soil," said team manager Herve Poncharal. "And we hope the US fans will join us in supporting Team Texas."

Edwards will use his famous T-shirt cannon to launch some of the limited edition shirts to the crowd during Saturday evening's concert and rider interview session at 6:00 p.m. on the main stage in the Yamaha marketplace.
