(September 7, 2012) - For Celtic Racing, the upcoming race weekend at New Jersey Motorsports Park is as close as the team gets to a home event. Adding to the excitement and enthusiasm, both Rispoli and Alexander expect tremendous local support from friends and family who will make the trip for the AMA Pro Road Racing weekend. James Rispoli is currently leading the AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport West Championship with 279 points - a massive 60 point lead over his closest rival. Rispoli has spent the month since the last race and win at Laguna Seca training harder than ever to prepare for New Jersey. Corey Alexander arrives at New Jersey with his priorities for the AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport East Championship title in plain view. Alexander showed his talents at Laguna Seca with a strong fifth place finish, and has used the summer break to train and ride as much as possible. The two races this weekend pay points towards Alexander's East Championship, and with good results he can push ahead of several rivals.

James Rispoli will ride his #1 Celtic Orient Express Suzuki GSX-R 600 with renewed determination and focus this weekend. Rispoli stated excitedly that "I'm here to win, and I've had nothing else on my mind since Laguna. My Celtic Orient Express crew has been working hard to get the bike ready, and I've pushed my training to a new level. We are ready to finish the year strong, nothing else matters. Many thanks to all the fans who have been behind me all season, and especially to my personal sponsors: AGV Helmets, Dainese Leathers, Monster Energy, and Techmounts for all their support!"

The #5 National Guard Fairhills Group Suzuki GSX-R 600 that Corey Alexander will ride has been carefully prepared ahead of this weekend's races at New Jersey Motorsports Park, and Alexander himself has worked hard to be physically and mentally ready. Alexander stated "I'm really excited for my "home round" here at NJMP. I've always done well here, and hope to improve further on past results this weekend in front of my family and friends." Corey would like to thank all his personal sponsors for their support, including Arai Helmets, Fairhills Group, Hudson Valley Motorcycles, Spidi Leathers, and XPD Boots.

Both Celtic Racing Suzuki GSX-R 600's showcase the best in road racing technology. Product support for both machines comes from: Michael Jordan Motorsports, American Suzuki, Armor Bodies, Chicken Hawk Racing, DesignStar3, Dynojet, FMF Racing, Full Spectrum Power, Hudson Valley Racing, Galfer Brakes, GB Racing, K-Tech Suspension, Maxima Oils, Motion Pro, Pit Bull, Riviera Country Club, Saddlemen, Star Motorcycle School, Vortex Racing, and Zero Gravity.

More recent Celtic Racing efforts have focused on AMA Pro Road Racing in the AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike and AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport classes with Ducati, Honda, Suzuki, and Yamaha four stroke motorcycles.
