MICHAEL JORDAN MOTORSPORTS RENEWS PARTNERSHIP WITH NATIONAL GUARD, ADDS ESLICK TO TEAM
EAST TROY, WI (December 17, 2012) - Michael Jordan Motorsports (MJM) announced its renewed partnership with the Army National Guard for the 2013 AMA Pro National Guard Superbike Championship season. This season marks the team's fifth year of collaboration with the nation's oldest branch of the military, and their common goal is to continue to provide a platform for recruiting and to train National Guard soldiers to ride street motorcycles safely.
The race-winning MJM team is also celebrating the addition of a new rider to its lineup, Danny Eslick, who will ride the #23 Jordan Suzuki GSX-R1000. A former Daytona Sportbike Champion, Eslick finished eighth overall in last year's AMA Pro Superbike series and brought home three podium finishes. Eslick's best result of the season was a solid second-place at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida.
Eslick joins National Guard Jordan Suzuki's returning rider Roger Lee Hayden, who will again race the #54 Jordan Suzuki GSX-R1000. Last year, Hayden picked up his first-ever AMA Pro Superbike victory and finished third overall in the series. Hayden's win came at Homestead-Miami Speedway, where he also captured his first career AMA Pro Superbike pole position. Overall, 2012 saw Hayden visit the podium seven times.
"It's all about the goal of winning a championship," said Kreig Robinson, MJM Vice President of Corporate Relations. "Each year we work tirelessly to improve upon the last. Through intense off-season development and testing, we try to come up with the formula that will put us on top every race. We are looking forward to a good 2013 AMA Pro National Guard Superbike season."
The MJM team's next event in the 2013 AMA Pro National Guard Superbike Championship will be the season-opening round at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, FL, in March 2013.
