Michael Jordan Motorsports has signed Danny Eslick to ride its GSX-R1000 in the 2013 AMA Pro National Guard Superbike Championship alongside Roger Lee Hayden.
MJM has also renewed the partnership with the Army National Guard; the team’s fifth year of collaboration with America’s oldest branch of the military, whose common goal is to continue to provide a platform for recruiting and training National Guard soldiers to ride street motorcycles safely.
Eslick finished eighth overall in last year’s AMA Pro Superbike series and brought home three podium finishes, his best result of the season being a second place at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida. He will ride the #23 Jordan Suzuki GSX-R1000 Superbike alongside Hayden’s #54 National Guard Jordan Suzuki.
Last year, Hayden (pictured) picked up his first-ever AMA Pro Superbike victory and finished third overall in the series. His 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.
Said Kreig Robinson, MJM Vice President of Corporate Relations: “It’s all about the goal of winning a championship. 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 at every race. We are looking forward to a good 2013 AMA Pro National Guard Superbike season.”
The MJM team’s first event in the 2013 AMA Pro National Guard Superbike Championship will be the season-opening round at Daytona International Speedway, Daytona Beach, Florida in March.
