Haner's New Ride

From a press release issued by Proforma's Bill Syfan:<BR><BR>HAS/SHOGUN RACING TO MAKE AMA DEBUT AT DAYTONA <BR><BR>In a new alliance between HAS Racing and Shogun Motorsports, the team of HAS/Shogun Racing will make its debut in the 2003 AMA/Chevy Trucks U.S. Superbike Championship at Daytona on March 5th. With two successful tests in the last month at No Problem Raceway and Oak Hill Raceway, the new team has gotten a chance to work together and determine baseline settings that will help make the team more competitive from the start of practice at Daytona. <BR><BR>"The team has really come together in the two tests that we've done," said team owner Lance Small. "Our sponsors have been great about getting us the products that we need, and the crew has worked non-stop to get everything together for Daytona." <BR><BR>Riders John Haner and Heath Small have had a chance to get familiar with their new machines, which in Heath's case was quite a change. "I've been riding V-Twins for the last three years, so it's taken some laps to get used to the Yamaha R6, but I'm getting really comfortable on it now," said Small, who will focus on the AMA 600 Supersport class at Daytona on the #278 Yamaha. <BR><BR>John Haner, who will contest the AMA 750 Superstock class on the #44 Suzuki GSX-R750, has been training hard in preparation for the 2003 season. "I'm in better shape than ever, and my endurance is way up. I'm really looking forward to the Superstock race at Daytona!" <BR><BR>Both Haner and Small will also compete in the Superbike class on Yamaha R1s that meet the new 1000cc engine rules for the class. Be sure to look for the red, white and blue HAS/Shogun Racing transporter in the paddock at Daytona. <BR><BR>For more information on HAS/Shogun Racing, visit and <BR> <BR> <BR>
