RMR/Rossmeyer Daytona Racing

Team Bio

The RMR/Rossmeyer Daytona Racing Revolution Performance squad encompasses two separately labeled efforts: 2012 Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson series champion, Michael Barnes and Bobby Fong.

Richie Morris has been involved with motorcycle racing since he was 8 years old, starting out on the flat tracks of Western Kentucky. The young racer was a familiar sight at many local and regional dirt and motocross tracks.

In 1981 Richie moved from Kentucky to Daytona Beach, FL. In 1994 he secured the sponsorship of Daytona Harley-Davidson Buell, (World's largest Harley-Davidson dealership) as well as the Ocean Deck. Richie has continued to enjoy this support and sponsorship for over 13 years now, no small feat in the world of racing sponsorships.

After graduating to road racing in 1991, Richie won the Harley-Davidson National Championship in 1992. He later went on to win the Expert Supersport National Championship in 1995. Up until 1999 Richie had mainly concentrated on the Harley / Buell NASB series, but, in 1999, thanks to support from KMC Telecom and the continued support of Daytona Harley-Davidson, and the Ocean Deck, Richie was a top contender in the 1999 AMA Pro Thunder series and in 2000 in the PACE Buell Lightning series finishing 3rd overall in points.

In 2001, after a move to Wisconsin, Richie signed to ride for Hal's Harley-Davidson of New Berlin, WI. From Hal's, Richie received strong support and excellent mechanical work which helped him finish 3rd overall in points in the Clear Channel Formula USA Buell Lightning series in 2001 and 5th overall in points in 2002.

For years Richie has been a well-known rider on the road racing scene. He has enjoyed many wins and success in this difficult profession as well as the friendship, camaraderie and respect of riders, officials, his sponsors and crew.

Over the years, racing has taken a real toll on Richie's body. He has suffered 65 broken bones including his neck and back as well as 15 concussions. After a serious crash in 2001 during the Daytona 200 and another very serious crash in 2004 ending in total knee replacement and months of pain, rehab and multiple surgeries, Richie Morris retired from riding and took on the new challenge of being a team owner.
