TRACY, California -- Tony "the Tiger" Meiring is pleased to announce the launch of his first dedicated line of merchandise. The factory Kawasaki Supersport rider has partnered with Wateree Sports Group in an effort to provide specially designed "Tiger" gear for fans.

Jeff Reeves, vice president of Wateree Sports Group, commented on his company's latest partnership. "This is a great opportunity for Wateree Sports Group to work with one of the youngest stars in this sport. Tony has proven his ability on the track. We can now offer his new fans a great new product line to help build his exposure both on and off the track. We are excited to have Tony as part of our AMA Pro Racing merchandising program."

Starting with Eric Bostrom several months ago, Wateree has since signed several top U.S. road racing stars to merchandising deals. And although this season was Tony's first as a factory rider, the Horizon Award winner has impressed many and proven that he is one of AMA Pro Racing's brightest future stars. The 18 year-old is certainly excited about this new opportunity. "I can't wait to work with these guys. They've come out with some really good products and designs, and I've seen what they've done for Eric and for Eric's fans. So I'm looking forward to having products that my fans can support me with too."

Fans will be able to purchase the gear at AMA road racing events, and will soon be able to purchase the gear online at and also on Tony's website ( following the site's official launch this fall.
