ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (June 3, 2012) – The Michael Jordan Motorsports (MJM) team continues to make progress and improve their results with almost every round of the 2012 AMA Pro National Guard Superbike series. The recent double-header weekend at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI was no exception. MJM’s Ben Bostrom lifted his game across the board, carding impressive fourth-place finishes in both Saturday and Sunday’s races.
MJM’s Bostrom started the weekend with a promising qualifying session, in which he landed a front-row spot on the grid. Unfortunately, heavy storms swept through and delayed and abbreviated Saturday’s AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike race. Nonetheless, Bostrom gave it his all and raced his Jordan Suzuki GSX-R1000 to a respectable fourth. Sunday dawned sunny, and Bostrom again gave 100 percent in the 13-lap SuperBike race and again brought home fourth. Bostrom’s strong performance this weekend moved him up a hefty four spots in the overall championship points.
“I just can’t thank the Michael Jordan Motorsports crew enough for helping me continue to chip away at the leaders,” said Bostrom. “They made my job awesome at Road America. Racing the Jordan Suzuki GSX-R1000 this weekend was the most fun I’ve had on a bike in years.”
National Guard Jordan Suzuki teammate Roger Hayden had a rough time of it at Road America. In Saturday’s race, he put forth a good effort, but his bike had some electronic issues and he retired early for the day. On Sunday, he was penalized for jumping the start and wound up finishing 13th.
In the 2012 AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike Championship points standings, Hayden sits in fourth place and Bostrom moved up to seventh. The Michael Jordan Motorsports team’s next event of the 2012 AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike Championship is at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, AL the weekend of June 22 - 24, 2012.

ABOUT THE ARMY NATIONAL GUARD:
The National Guard is the oldest military branch. Today, Citizen-Soldiers hold civilian jobs or attend college while training part time, staying ready to defend America in the event of an emergency. The National Guard serves both state and federal governments. During local emergencies, Guard units assist residents endangered by storms, floods, fires and other disasters.
