Autolite RIM Racing has mixed results in New Jersey

Millville, N.J. (September 7, 2010) - Following a very successful round 8 at VIR, Autolite RIM Racing had a difficult weekend during Round 9 of the AMA Pro Daytona SportBike presented by AMSOIL held at New Jersey Motorsports Park. Both races involved crashes, but Mike Morgan soldiered on in race one and finished a solid 21st after rejoining the race. Race two positioned Morgan in a five bike battle for 12th, and the race came to an end in a high speed 100 mph crash in the last turn, but with the 19th lap completed, Morgan still finished 19th.

Mike Morgan:
"We had some issues this weekend and it just didn't come together for us this time, but we'll go back to the shop and get everything organized for the next round. The Autolite RIM Racing crew had to work a little more this weekend and I have to thank them for their hard work. Race one was going well and a low speed crash took me out of another top 15 finish. The Vortex components did a great job protecting the bike and I was able to continue. If we would have gotten a red flag during the race I would have been right back in the hunt. The second race was going great and the pace was fast but comfortable. That crash was a real surprise and definitely one of the fastest I have had. The Shark helmet, Pilot leather, TCX boots, and Held gloves did an amazing job and all I walked away with was some bumps. We have great sponsors and everything will be 100% by the last round at Barber in a couple of weeks. I look forward to a top 10 before the year is out and I will be giving it my all."
