2012 AMA Daytona Sportbike

With the Daytona 200 only a few days away, AMA Pro Racer Melissa Paris has announced she will be competing in the 2012 AMA Pro Racing GoPro Daytona Sportbike Championship.

Along with continued support from Yamaha, Melissa will have a new title sponsorship for the Daytona 200 event from Sea Miracle, a highly concentrated whole food.

Melissa Paris says: “I’ve been using Sea Miracle throughout the off season and have felt its benefits firsthand through a tough training block. I’m really excited to have them along at Daytona and for the opportunity to introduce such a cool product to all my friends.”

For the 2012 season Melissa will be aboard her familiar #13 Yamaha YZF-R6 prepped by Attack Performance. The team has also added renowned tuner and owner of Attack Richard Stanboli as her crew chief.

Melissa Paris says: “Richard’s won races and championships and has worked with some pretty incredible riders, so it’s really exciting to have his help this year. I know he’ll have a lot of ideas to get the most out of me and my R6.”

In addition to continuing her relationship with Yamaha and Attack Performance, Melissa would also like to thank all of her sponsors who will be back with her for the 2012 season, including GYTR, Joe Rocket, Leo Vince, MotionPro, Vesrah, Motodex Performance First, Yamalube, Rockwell Time, GB Racing, Braking, Zero Gravity, Widsix, Drippin Wet, and GoPro.
