Daytona SportBike: Jake Holden on 848

AMA Road Racing

Crozier Roberson Motorsports has announce that they have signed well-known Superbike road racer Jake Holden to pilot their No. 14 DNA Energy Drink Ducati 848 in the AMA Pro Daytona SportBike class beginning at the West Coast Moto Jam, May 14-16 at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif.

"We are really excited about having Jake join our team," says team manager and co-owner Mark Crozier. "His talent speaks for itself and we feel that he will be a great asset to the team. In short, both Robbie (Roberson) and I feel that the combination of Jake and Bobby Fong will give us a very strong team."

Born and raised in Washington, Holden has been racing since he was six years old. Beginning with Dirt Track in the Pacific Northwest, this talented rider made the transition to road racing when he was 15. Finely honing his skills, he moved into AMA racing in 2004 and immediately began to carve a name for himself. Last season, Holden finished 10th overall in AMA Pro American Superbike.

Jake Holden says: "I am really happy to be a member of the Crozier Roberson Motorsports Team," says Holden with obvious enthusiasm. "They run an excellent program and the entire team is really motivated and determined to win which is exactly my goal."

"Having Jake on board will allow me to concentrate on running the team," explains Crozier. Managing the team, working with sponsors and trying to race was like trying to work two full time jobs at the same time. I decided I could bring far more to the program but concentrating on the management aspect of things. Not racing will let me put all my energy into putting DNA Energy Drink and Crozier Roberson Motorsports in Victory Lane. I know every track we race on and I will be able to help both Bobby and Jake get on the podium every time out."

In addition to managing the team, Crozier will handle all the test riding and will compete in selected races during the season.

"I am looking forward to having Jake as a member of our team," says co-owner Robbie Roberson. "His goals, his professionalism and determination fit right in with philosophy and I think he will be a welcome addition."

Crozier Roberson Motorsports is sponsored by: DNA Energy Drink, Quality Brands, Inc., Arai Helmets, Race Tech, Motion Pro, Pit Bull, EBC Brakes, EK, Melillimoto Ducati,, XES, Thrust Company, HEL, Woodcraft, Armour Bodies, Puma, Held Gloves, GP Tech, Active, Zero Gravity and Christopher Bean Coffee.
