More, from a press release issued by MOB Racing:

After last year's fuel miscalculation left PJ Jacobsen on the side of the track in Nascar Turn 3 on his pit-in lap and Shane Narbonne never getting a real shot on the track, he went out there this weekend with one thing in mind"¦REDEMPTION!

The team spent all week preparing the MOB Racing/Markbilt-powered Suzuki GSX-R1000 endurance bike for its final weekend of competition this week.

Shane went to Daytona full of confidence and it showed as he dominated the field, bringing MOB Racing its first win of the weekend!

"That bike was key to my success at Daytona 4 long years ago, now to have the SAME bike go back out there with Shane at the helm and dominate the way they did is really special to me"¦Shane's a great guy, I say it over and over because this team could not have accomplished what it has in such a short period of time without him! Now I can't wait to see what he does on the Ducati Panigale!!!!" says team owner Dennis Espinosa.
