Michael Jordan Motorsports Previews Auto Club Speedway.

After the start of the AMA Pro Racing season at Daytona International Speedway, Michael Jordan Motorsports (MJM) is gearing up for Round Two at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. Leaving behind the crowds of Bike Week and traveling across the country, MJM eagerly awaits this weekend’s doubleheader to improve upon the teams’ opening results.

Jordan Suzuki #23
Aaron Yates got the 2009 season underway for Jordan Suzuki #23 with a hard-fought 7th place finish in the American Superbike class at Daytona. Riding his 2008 spec GSX-R 1000, Yates worked to find the optimal setup for his Suzuki before heading into the race and clicked off consistent laptimes, setting a race-best lap .6 seconds faster than his Superpole time. With this consistency Aaron stayed right on the rear wheels of 5th and 6th place going into the final 2 laps of the contest, but lapped traffic kept him unable to make a move into the Top 5 during that final lap.

"We got out of Daytona with some valuable championship points and a lot of good information for future races," said Yates. "We tried some new things for the race and now it’s off to Fontana, a track I’ve done well at in the past and that my GSX-R gets around pretty well. I’m looking forward to putting my Jordan Suzuki up on the box this weekend."

National Guard Jordan Suzuki #54
Geoff May debuted for his new team, the National Guard Jordan Suzuki, at Daytona International Speedway astride his #54 Suzuki GSX-R 1000 with a solid top-10 finish on the high banks. Racing in the National Guard American Superbike class, May set a best lap of the race, a full second faster than his Superpole time, while battling with his competitors throughout the entire race. Determined to fight to the finish, Geoff brought his 2008-spec machine across the line in 10th position, matching his 2008 Superbike finish.

"It’s good to be back on the bike representing the Army National Guard for 2009," said May. "I’m confident in my National Guard Jordan Suzuki and have been training hard for this weekend’s race."
