Michael Jordan Motorsports riders Aaron Yates and Geoff May each qualified for the front row in Round 2 of the AMA Pro Racing American Superbike Championship at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA. Aaron Yates of the #23 Jordan Suzuki team lowered his Basic Qualifying time during Superpole to 1:24.759, putting his GSXR-1000 in 2nd position on the grid. Rounding out the starting field, in 4th position with a Superpole time of 1:24.885, is Geoff May of the #54 National Guard Jordan Suzuki team.
This is the first time during the 2009 season that both Michael Jordan Motorsports riders will appear together on the front row and puts them in excellent starting position for this weekend’s contests.
Aaron Yates – 2nd 1:24.759 – Jordan Suzuki #23
"It feels good to be starting from 2nd position after the results we had in Daytona," said Yates. "All the guys have been putting in some hard work and we were able to go out there in Superpole and go faster than we had during Basic Qualifying. We have some small changes to make before the race and we’re confident we can run up front."
Geoff May – 4th 1:24.885 – National Guard Jordan Suzuki #54
"First off, a big thanks to my crew," said May. "I’m happy to be on the front row and our guys have been working hard since Daytona to dial in some chassis issues and I can feel the results. I had a small moment during my flying lap and almost highsided onto the front straight but I pulled it together and charged hard to the line to put my National Guard GSX-R on the front row!"
