Doug Polen returns to AMA Pro Racing

Four-Time World Champion and AMA Superbike Champion Doug Polen returns to AMA Pro Racing competition this weekend at Road America. Polen will be riding the # 27 4FR Toyota Trucks/ American Superbike entry to help the team develop set up on the bike and evaluate their program overall.

This is a special project that will see Polen take his vast knowledge and rider know-how to the track where the race and riders are, rather than the norm of riders and bikes coming to him at scheduled school and track. It is a direct line of communication and guidance at the track of choice for those riders and team in need, all in real time.

Over the course of the weekend, Doug will be coaching the younger riders on the team as well as filling in for the injured American Superbike rider Scotty Van Hawk. "This is a great opportunity for the team and I was thrilled that we are able to put this together and that Doug was available. We hope to take what we learn from Doug this weekend and build on our recent top-ten finishes. It’s an honor to add him to our roster" said 4FR team principal Scotty Van Hawk.

Doug Polen will use his 1on1 Riders School curriculum to guide the other team riders on and off the track during the weekend. "The 4FR team riders vary greatly in age and experience levels and are a perfect fit for my school program" said Polen. "I’m looking forward to working with them, riding the team’s Superbike and help them sort it all out. It should be a great weekend"
