National Guard/Celtic Racing Seeking Continued Success This Coming Weekend At Miller Motorsports Park

Celtic Racing's Corey Alexander and James Rispoli have both enjoyed success at Miller Motorsports Park over the past two seasons. In 2011 Alexander dominated the rain soaked event, taking his first AMA Pro SuperSport race win, followed by a strong sixth in 2012 with Rispoli close behind in eighth place. The Miller Motorsports Park facility is a wide, 3.06 mile long circuit that has great flow and rhythm for the riders. For the first time at Miller, all classes will have two races - making it a doubleheader weekend. Both Daytona SportBike races from Miller will be broadcast live on CBS Sports Network - please check your local listings for air times.

Corey Alexander is leading the AMA SuperSport East championship, and the podium finish at Laguna will help in the overall season standings. Alexander's #5 National Guard Celtic Racing Suzuki GSX-R 600 is ready to do battle at the front, at a track that he enjoys and knows well. Alexander said "I'm excited to be returning to the track where I got my first win! Miller is an amazing place and after the great strides we've made as far as set up goes, I'm confident we can be up front yet again battling for the win! I'm really proud to be representing the National Guard, and I really appreciate all the support and encouragement from our fans and my personal sponsors too!"

James Rispoli will be back on his #43 National Guard Celtic Racing Suzuki GSX-R 600 this weekend, and has been preparing for the Daytona Sport Bike races at Miller since returning to Florida after Laguna Seca. Rispoli stated "I have been home training and enjoying the week off. It's time for us to regroup and get our minds back to being on pace running with the front guys. I have always loved this track and can't wait to get FP1 under way. Thanks to all my fans and personal sponsors for all the support, it was great to see everyone at Laguna - hope you can make it to Miller!"

The National Guard is the oldest military branch. Today, Citizen-Soldiers hold civilian jobs or attend college while training part time, staying ready to defend America in the event of an emergency. The National Guard serves both state and federal governments. During local emergencies, Guard units assist residents endangered by storms, floods, fires and other disasters. Guard companies deployed overseas may see combat, but are often found building schools and hospitals, training local peacekeepers or teaching local farmers more efficient techniques and better uses of their land.
