Sportbike: Millennium & RMR Suzuki Partner

AMA Daytona SportBike

Richie Morris Racing is proud to announce Millennium Technologies will partner with Geico RMR Suzuki during the 2011 season as Danny Eslick and the team attempt to win back the number one plate in AMA Pro Daytona SportBike.

Millennium Technologies provides repair and maintenance services for cylinders and cylinder heads, and manufactures nickel silicon carbide plated cylinders for a variety of engines, including motorcycles, snowmobiles, race cars, karts, dirt bikes, watercraft and aircraft.

Chris Hackl (Millennium Technologies) says: "At Millennium Technologies, we have a lot of cylinder head technology and it’s good to be a part of the team and help out where we can. It’s good to be part of the team. We’re looking forward to Danny hopefully taking back the championship and doing really well this year."

Richie Morris says: "We’re really happy to have Chris Hackl and Millennium Technologies join us on the Suzuki side to our program. Revolution Performance, which is their sister company, has been with us with the Harley side starting last year and now they are a primary partner in this year’s effort. Hopefully, we’ll be able to bring home a championship together with the new Suzuki GSX-R600.

"When I started as a team owner, one of the things that I have tried to achieve is to not just cover the bike with product sponsors. We look for true partners that want to work together and it’s great to have Millennium Technologies on board."

In 2009, the team burst onto the AMA Pro racing scene by earning the Daytona inaugural SportBike championship with Danny Eslick, followed by a strong title defense that saw RMR Geico Suzuki and Eslick fight for the title until the final race before taking second place in the points.

GEICO RMR Suzuki is sponsored by GEICO Powersports, Lucas Oil, Suzuki, Millennium Technologies, Vortex Sprockets, EBC Brakes, and Pilot.
