"This weekend is going to be a bit different after Barber and Infineon," said Yates. "Those tracks are both on the tighter end of the spectrum and now we are heading into the fast Road America track. I should be good. It’s an old school raceway and it will give us a chance to show how quick our Jordan Suzuki GSX-R 1000 is."

Road America is a really fast track and it’s our home round. I can’t wait to get my National Guard Jordan Suzuki opened up on Friday."
