Blue Buffalo unleashes racing team


Wilton-based Blue Buffalo natural pet foods announced the debut of the BLUE Racing Team last week. In association with Yamaha Motor Corporate and Slater Skins, the team will race in the 2015 AMA Monster Energy Supercross and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship race programs.
Motocross and supercross rider Ryan Zimmer of Raleigh, N.C. will ride the Blue Buffalo bike throughout the 2015 season.
