Michael Jordan Motorsports rolls into northern California for Round 5 of the AMA American Superbike Championship at Infineon Raceway this weekend. The #23 Jordan Suzuki and #54 National Guard Jordan Suzuki teams will take to the Sonoma, California track on Friday May 15 to start the three day Superbike Showdown, with feature races happening on both Saturday and Sunday. This will be the teams’ second race on the new 2009-spec GSX-R 1000s, with both teams leaving Round 4 at Barber Motorsports Park with strong finishes on the new motorcycle and with the goal of more good results to come.
Jordan Suzuki #23
Aaron Yates’ second place finish in Race 2 at Barber Motorsports Park last round was his best finish to date and the highest finish for Michael Jordan Motorsports this season. Looking to build from that strong result, the #23 team comes into Round 5 with a much better understanding of the new 2009 GSX-R 1000 and proven results behind it. Yates is currently in seventh place in the Championship standings with 98 points.
Aaron Yates Speaks…
"I’m looking forward to racing this weekend," said Yates. "It was really good to get up on the podium last weekend at Barber and the whole crew is eager to keep the momentum going. Infineon is a classic track and I’m ready to get back at it."
National Guard Jordan Suzuki #54
Geoff May and the #54 National Guard Jordan Suzuki team sit firmly in third place in the American Superbike Championship, after scoring a top five finish in Race 2 at Barber Motorsports Park. With one race on the new 2009 GSX-R behind them, the #54 team hopes to build off that and comes into Infineon Raceway ready to put the 1000cc Suzuki back on the podium. May has 122 Championship points.
Geoff May Speaks…
"My crew has put in some hard work figuring out the new Suzuki and we’re pumped for Infineon," said May. "We came out of the races at Barber with valuable data and put ourselves back into the top three for the Championship hunt and are ready to put the #54 back up on the box."
