The National Guard and Michael Jordan Motor Sports will field an American Superbike entry piloted by 2008 Formula Xtreme Champion and the 2006 Daytona 200 Winner Jake Zemke in the 2010 AMA Pro Racing National Guard Superbike Championship series.
"We’re extremely proud to welcome Jake Zemke to our organization," said Kreig Robinson, Michael Jordan Motor Sports Vice President of Corporate Relations. "It’s not often that champions become available. We have always admired Jake. He’s a fan favorite and always professional."
