Triple Crown RMR announced today that Daytona Anderson will ride a MotoSport.com Yamaha R6 for the upcoming 2013 season. Daytona will campaign the entire season in the AMA SuperSport series.
"I'm so excited to be a part of the MotoSport.com Triple Crown RMR Racing Team for 2013 and start my AMA professional career with a team of this caliber," said Daytona. "I met the Triple Crown team at Laguna Seca this past year and we've kept in touch since then. At the CCS race in Daytona Beach we were pitted right next to Stefano Mesa and his crew. I was impressed with their operation and had high hopes of ending up on a team like that. I'm excited to be a part of the team and I am 100% ready to give it my all! I want to thank MotoSport.com, Triple Crown / RMR Racing, Jon Boucher, and Next Moto Champion for putting this deal together, along with all my family and friends!"
"The first time I met Daytona at Laguna I was impressed," stated Dave Brite. "After that weekend I took a look at his recent results and was even more impressed with what he was able to do on the West Coast against some solid competition. From that point on I started keeping tabs on Daytona Anderson and was hoping that we could find a way to get him on the MotoSport.com team this year for his professional debut. I think he's going to surprise some people."
Southern California has been known as the proving grounds for emerging talent in road racing. With tracks like Auto Club Speedway, Willow Springs, Button Willow, and Chuckwalla all within driving distance, it's the perfect place to live if you're looking for some seat time. Daytona Anderson has grown up on these tracks over the last couple of years and this year he will make the transition to the professional ranks of the SuperSport class in AMA Pro Racing. The 16-year old out of Riverside, California had a stellar season as he took home numerous championships in the WERA West Series against some of the fastest riders in the country. Daytona took home the 600 C SuperBike Championship, 750 B SuperStock Championship and the 750 B SuperBike Championship. If his professional career is anything like his amateur career then it won't be long before everyone knows the name Daytona Anderson.
"His name is Daytona, how can you go wrong," said Richie Morris. "He is a good young rider with a great future. I think he will find a home with us for a while. We are looking forward to a great season."
All Triple Crown RMR media and websites are scheduled to be out Feb 1st. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements.
