Perry Melneciuc releases Team "Project 1 Atlanta" to contest the 2010 AMA Daytona SportBike Championship. Based out of Kennesaw, Georgia the P1A team riders will include Dane Westby of Oklahoma and "The New Jersey Shocker" Clinton Seller of South Africa.

Perry Melnecuic Speaks… 

"I’m very excited about the potential this team has for the 2010 season. We have two very talented riders and an equally talented crew. Along with the added technical support coming from Team Graves Yamaha, I know that we will be capable of competing for a podium, as well as race wins on any given weekend".

Team Sponsors include Project 1 Atlanta, Graves Motorsports, Yamaha, Pilot, Arai, Sidi and Vortex sprockets.
