AMA Pro Daytona SportBike Racer Pascarella: "I Know I Have What It Takes To Win"

Joey Pascarella and Riders Discount Triumph Are Ready For Daytona

It’s been a long winter for Joey Pascarella and the Riders Discount Triumph team - both of whom are ready to get back to racing in the 2013 AMA Pro Racing season. Thankfully that will be happening sooner rather than later, as they will be taking to the high banks of the Daytona International Speedway during the coming weekend for the Daytona 200.

Pascarella, the defending Daytona 200 race winner, returns to Daytona after a productive offseason that included a new track record in Las Vegas last month, and is looking to carry this success into the AMA season. He’ll be doing so aboard his #52 Triumph Daytona 675R, which made its way down from the Riders Discount headquarters in Holland, Michigan, with a pit-stop at the Barber Motorsports Park for testing.

“I am feeling really good about everything going into Daytona,” said Pascarella. “I know I have what it takes to win after doing it last year, and with the Riders Discount Triumph team behind me, I know we have a good chance of a repeat performance. I can't wait to get back on the banking with my Triumph 675R and to get the 2013 season under way. I want to thank the team and all the sponsors for giving me the opportunity to do what I love to do - go racing.”

“Joey’s an incredibly talented rider and we’re lucky to have him on board for the Daytona 200, and the rest of the 2013 season,” said Brian Gibson, Riders Discount Triumph team owner. “I know he has what it takes to win and I can’t wait to see what he can do on the Triumph. We definitely have a solid team, and to say that we’re looking forward to Daytona would be an understatement!”

Team Manager, Bree Poland added, “We are beyond excited to get to Daytona and see our Riders Discount Triumph out on the high banks of Daytona. Joey has been training hard all season and we were able to get a test in before heading south. The team is super excited to have last year's Daytona 200 winner riding for us and we are hoping for another win. We can't thank our sponsors enough for helping us this season!”
