LEXINGTON, OH (July 16, 2012) – The Michael Jordan Motorsports (MJM) team celebrated its best weekend of racing so far this season at the double-header AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, OH. National Guard Jordan Suzuki’s Roger Hayden raced his Jordan Suzuki GSX-R1000 to second and third place, while MJM teammate Ben Bostrom brought home a solid seventh-place finish on Saturday.
For Hayden, the results marked his personal bests for the season. On Saturday, Hayden got a good start on his Jordan Suzuki GSX-R1000 and, despite a red flag, raced to an impressive third-place finish. On Sunday, Hayden again came out swinging right from the get-go and battled successfully for the second spot on the podium.
“We had a good weekend at Mid-Ohio,” said Hayden. “The first race went pretty good. I worked my way up to third and engaged in a good battle throughout the whole race. In the second race, I was able to go good right out of the gate and about halfway through the race, I moved into second. I had really good speed and ran with the leader the whole race. All in all, it was a good weekend for us and it was great to be back on the podium for both races. I can’t thank my National Guard Jordan Suzuki team enough. Hopefully we can keep the ball rolling at Laguna Seca, which is a track that I like.”
MJM’s Bostrom started the weekend on a high point by getting a decent start in Saturday’s 21-lap race, turning consistent laps and bringing home a solid seventh. On Sunday, Bostrom again got a fair start and worked his way up into fourth by the middle of the race, but finished 15th.
“It was a rough weekend for the number 23 Jordan bike,” said Bostrom. “But it was a great weekend for the National Guard Jordan 54. It was great to see Roger up on the podium and I hope to join him up there at Laguna Seca. And I have to thank the Jordan Motorsports boys, who are doing an awesome job as always.”
In the 2012 AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike Championship points standings, Hayden moved up to fourth place while Bostrom sits in ninth. The Michael Jordan Motorsports team’s next event of the 2012 AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike Championship is at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, CA, the weekend of July 27 - 29, 2012.
