Millville, NJ. (Sept 19, 2013) – BP Racing’s Brazilian rider Sebastiao Ferreira took an outstanding 7th place finish in each of his races that was both hard fought and well earned in the Geico AMA Pro SuperSport class at New Jersey Motorsports Park. In addition BP Racing’s American SuperSport rider CJ Weaver took home an 11th and an 8th place finish. These finishes earned a 4th and 6th place in the final points for Ferreira and Weaver respectively.

Team Owner Mike Hammett commented “Coming into this round we felt like we had to play it conservative due to not riding at the track last year and being so close in the west points race for top 3.” Team Manager Ken Chewey noted “We started by struggling with gearing and finally after qualifying and race 1 we found a better setup for race 2 which proved worthy in the morning warm up Sunday.”

“The weekend started off great, and I felt really good on the track, like I could have the chance to give everyone a good run. I didn’t qualify where I wanted but battled it out in race 1. In race 2 was running in a strong 6th with Wyatt Farris with Miles Thornton in my sights and I told myself I can catch them, unfortunately grip started to drop off and I couldn’t push as hard as I would have liked. I am very pleased with the bike and the team, and I have been so lucky that team owner Mike Hammett and my crew chief Ken Chewey have been able to give me a chance this season at some of the best results I have ever had.” comments Sebastiao Ferreira.

CJ Weaver states “This weekend started off a little rough. There were some issues with my bike from free practice 1. After taking the bike back to the garage Mike Hammett and Ken Chewey and my Dad figured out the motor was done. Mike Hammett let me borrow Sebastiao’s back-up bike and I was able to go out there and give it my all. I would like to thank BP Racing/Redzone racing for all the support they have given me this season and look forward to working with them in the future. I am pleased with the progress I have made this season and how much I have learned.”
