Yates and May preview Barber after 4 weeks off
Coming off a four week break since the last round of the AMA Superbike Championship, the Michael Jordan Motorsports team will take the track this weekend at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, AL. Both the Jordan Suzuki and National Guard Jordan Suzuki squads are eager to showcase the new 2009 Suzuki GSX-R 1000 bikes tested earlier in April and are ready to get back to work after the month-long pause.
Jordan Suzuki #23
Aaron Yates left Road Atlanta last month with solid performances, culminating in a top five finish in Race 2. Having spent three days recently testing the new 2009 GSX-R 1000, Yates and the entire Jordan Suzuki team are excited about getting back on the grid.
Aaron Yates Speaks…
"I can’t wait to get back racing again." "The test a few weeks ago at Carolina Motorsports Park went well and I’m loving the 2009 GSX-R. The bike works very well in all areas and I feel good about racing it this weekend at Barber."
National Guard Jordan Suzuki #54
Geoff May’s debut Superbike season has been a revelation with the Gainesville, GA rider putting his #54 Suzuki on the podium in three of the last four races. May and the National Guard Jordan Suzuki team look to continue that trend at Round 4 of the AMA Pro Racing Championship when they take the new 2009 GSX-R out into competition for the first time this year.
Geoff May Speaks…
"We had a good weekend in the last round at Road Atlanta, but now it’s time to move on and keep focused on the upcoming races," said May. "I’m really looking forward to racing the 2009 Suzuki this weekend since our test at Carolina was really encouraging and the 2009 seemed to work better than the 2008 in all regards. I’m feeling confident and expect more good results at Barber."
