Supersport: STAR School Sponsors Ant Racing

2011 AMA Supersport

ANT Racing Motorsports is please to announce that Jason Pridmore’s STAR School with sponsorship from ARMY National Guard will support the teams efforts in the AMA Pro Racing Supersport class for the 2011 season.

The team will be referred to as ANT Racing/STAR School, and James Rispoli will be the pilot.

Jason Pridmore is the 1997 AMA 750 Supersport Champion, 2002 AMA Formula Extreme Champion, and the 2003 FIM World Endurance Champion.

He is also the only American to ever stand on the podium of a World Supersport race. JP has 21 AMA National wins and countless podiums.

Jason’s STAR School was created to help riders become more proficient and more confident. Whether you’re a street rider who wants to improve your skills to gain confidence and become a safer rider, or a track day junkie and racer looking for answers on how to go faster on the racetrack, the STAR Motorcycle School has a motorcycle training program designed specifically for you.

Jason Pridmore says: "I am so excited to be working and supporting David and James in the Supersport class this season. David Ashi has put together a top notch program for such a young team and in 2010 you could measure the results both on and off the track.

"James on the other hand is a young rider I have been watching for since Mid-Ohio 2009 and I have seen huge strides forward from this young and experience dirttracker. I enjoy working with him because he listens, executes and communicates which makes him very coachable. I think we’re going to have a phenomenal season together."

David Ashi says: "It is such an honor to have someone of JP’s knowledge and experience helping and looking out for our team and rider. JP is extremely well known in the AMA Paddock and around the world as he has proven himself on and off the track. We couldn’t be any happier with his support and the support of the ARMY National Guard program. This is going to be an awesome season for sure."

James Rispoli says: "This is so cool. I look up to JP as he has coached me along to some great success. As a rider he has accomplished the things I want to accomplish. I want to win AMA titles, races and be on the podium as much as I can.

"I want to race overseas at the World level and one day make my way onto the World Superbike grid. This year is going to be another breakout learning year now that our team has the resources in place to think about racing and winning. I can’t be more excited about getting ready to get on the track."
