Michael Jordan Motorsports AMA Superbike Qualifying | Road Atlanta
National Guard Jordan Suzuki on the Front Row at Road Atlanta.
Michael Jordan Motorsports rider and Georgia native Geoff May continues to excel at Superpole, putting his #54 National Guard Jordan Suzuki on the front row for the second straight AMA Pro Racing American Superbike round today at Road Atlanta. Improving upon his Position 4 (P4) at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana CA, May piloted his Suzuki GSX-R 1000 around the 2.56 mile Road Atlanta circuit in 1:26.943 to place himself in P3 on the grid. May, a resident of nearby Gainesville, is pleased to have earned a front row spot yet again, just .041 behind P2, and will start both Saturday and Sunday’s races from his highest career Superbike qualifying position.
Teammate and fellow Georgian Aaron Yates of the Jordan Suzuki squad had an eventful day and finds himself on Row 2 for the American Superbike contest. The Milledgeville native had a big moment during his Superpole lap, but kept it upright and brought his #23 GSX-R home with a 1:28.145.

"I’m pretty pumped to put my National Guard Jordan Suzuki on the front row for the second race, especially here at my home track," said May. "I had to roll off the throttle pretty good during the first half of my hot lap, but I kept my head down and here we are back on the front row. I have quite a few friends and family here and I’m confident we can put it on the box again."

"We had a lowside at the end of basic qualifying. Then in Superpole, my bike spun up real good in the back section and I had to reel it back in," said Yates. "I’m confident in my Jordan Suzuki GSX-R 1000 however, and we’re going to be ready to run up front in the races tomorrow."
