Johnstown, Ohio (June 26, 2013) -  Ryan Kerr and the Ryan Kerr Racing Team were anxious to get back on the track at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama this past weekend. Kerr is on his way to becoming a well known name in the AMA Pro Superbike series.

Ryan Kerr and the Ryan Kerr racing team struggled with bike adjustments during Friday’s practice and qualifying sessions but were hopeful that improvements made would result in a strong qualifying position during the second qualifier on Saturday morning. Kerr stated, “The bike felt much better on Saturday and I was improving my lap times during qualifying and was moving up on the starting grid when I encountered trouble in turn 1 which resulted in a crash. I was transported to the care center and fortunately was cleared to race. Through hard work and perseverance, my crew chief and his assistant were able to get my equipment back together and ready for the race.” Kerr started in the 20th position and worked his way up to the 17th spot before the effects of the earlier morning incident began to make it difficult for him to continue. Kerr’s race ended early and he made the decision to not compete in the Sunday event and allow himself time to heal and prepare for the upcoming race in July at his hometown track, Mid Ohio Sports Car course.

The devotion of Ryan Kerr and the entire Ryan Kerr racing team makes them very deserving of great finishes. Kerr is one of the few privateers competing in the Superbike series. Kerr explains, “It truly has taken commitment and sacrifice from my family and friends to keep me racing at this level. My goal is to continue to improve at every event and to learn from the best! It is devastating that I was unable to finish the Barber event but I will take the next few weeks to recover and be ready to compete and see my home town fans at Mid Ohio in a few weeks.”
