Two-time WERA national champion Ben Thompson has ended his working relationship with the Factory Aprilia Millennium Technologies Team.
Effectively immediately, and with mutual consent, Thompson has been released from his contractual obligations with the KWS Motorsports run Aprilia Team and will no longer participate in the ’09 AMA Daytona Sportbike series for the team, starting with the Mid-Ohio round.
DiSalvo earned his second straight AMA Pro Daytona SportBike presented by AMSOIL Superpole and four different manufacturers were once again represented inside the top-four starting spots for the fourth time in as many race weekends in 2009.
After posting the quickest time in basic qualifying, DiSalvo was the last of 10 riders to take to the track for single-lap Superpole qualifying. He proceeded to turn a lap at 1:28.816 (96.469 mph) on his No. 40 Team M4 Suzuki GSX-R600, which knocked Jamie Hacking off the top of the scoring pylon.
