June 20, 2011 - Shelby Twp., MI - Witchkraft Racing's Jeff Wrobel completed a hard-fought and challenging weekend at the Barber SuperBike Classic held at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama this past weekend. Fighting the initial damp and extremely hot conditions throughout the three-day event, Jeff finished 11th in Saturday's Supersport race and suffered a DNF in Sunday's 17-lap event after his machine overheated, appearing to drop water on the front tire causing a low side crash ending his weekend. While the team always strives to be at the front, weekends like these show how strong the AMA Pro competition is and that running at the front is no easy task. Jeff currently sits 12th in the AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport East point standings.
While Eddie Kraft remains out of action with complications to his wrist injury from 2010, Witchkraft Racing's Crew Chief Joe Kraft flew down to assist the team, including SportbikeTrackGear.com's Brian Van and Jake Arch throughout the course of the weekend.
The next AMA Pro Road Racing Championship event is at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, July 8-10 - where Jeff and the crew will look to rebound and continue the learning progression in competing at the AMA Pro level.
