VESRAH SUZUKI RIDERS FINISH 5TH AND 7TH IN DAYTONA SPORTBIKE RACE 2 AT THE WEST COAST MOTO JAM AT INFINEON RACEWAY IN SONOMA CA.

Vesrah Suzuki finished up a difficult weekend with rider Cory West rebounding from a crash during morning warm up to finish 5th in Daytona Sportbike Race 2 at Infineon Raceway and Chris Fillmore continued with his string of strong top 10 finishes with 7th place. Cory now sits in 5th place in the season points and Chris is in 8th. The team is now looking forward to the next round at Road America in Elkhart Lake WI, which is the team's home race with the race shop located a little over an hour from the track.

Mark Junge - Team Owner Vesrah Suzuki
"I have to thank my team for the effort put forth this weekend - facing difficulties finding set-ups that would work at this track was trying but they never gave up and made great progress. The team put their heads together and never stopped trying to work out a successful plan of attack."

Cory West - Vesrah Suzuki #57
"So we had a lot of new settings to try this morning to try and help get me closer to the front but I did not make the most of the session. I had a big highside in turn 1 on my 2nd lap out and it rang my bell pretty good. I did manage to get back out on my spare bike and it felt way better than Saturday's race bike."
"The race was pretty wild but I was definitely closer to the front than yesterday. I ran as high as 4th and was close to a podium at the end but did not have the tires under me to be in contention. I'm happy that we improved our set-up and got ourselves back in the top 5. This was a very humbling weekend but we worked hard and never gave up and came out with good points. I have to thank Tony and Bruce for fixing my A bike after this morning's crash and for working so hard to get us where we needed to be in the results. Thanks again to the whole Vesrah crew and we'll see you at Road America."

Chris Fillmore - Vesrah Suzuki #55
"Without ideal conditions in the morning, the different set-up variations we tried were not working out so I ended up racing with the same set-up as yesterday. During the race I ran off on the first lap in the chicane and had worked my way back up to 14th when the red flag was shown. We restarted with 16 laps to go and I had the front group in sight but was not comfortable with my set-up and ran wide in turn 9. I was able to salvage a 7th place finish and I'm looking forward to Road America."
