Michael Jordan Motorsports Suzuki’s Jason Pridmore, Steve Rapp and Jake Holden were impressive at the AMA Superbike double-header weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington.

During the two day event there were multiple top-10 finishes. The Jordan-Suzuki Team posted fast laps in Superbike qualifying on Saturday. Pridmore (1:26.160) led the way, taking the sixth spot on the starting grid. Holden (1:27.037) qualified in the 10th spot and Rapp (1:27.327) took 13th position.

Holden had the most consistent showing with two top-10 finishes, 7th on Saturday and 9th on Sunday. “We struggled some with set-up issues in Saturday’s race, but we knew exactly what we needed for Sunday,” said Holden. “I felt confident about both races and that helped me run up front in the Superstock race.”

Rapp finished a strong 6th on Saturday, but was unable to race Sunday. “Saturday’s race was good. The bike was running well and I got a good start,” he said. “On Sunday, I high-sided in the Superstock race but I’m okay.”

Pridmore came home in 6th place on Sunday. “It was awesome to be running with the guys up front,” said Pridmore. “We have made so much progress with the bike and we’re finally where we should be.”

Jordan Suzuki uses K&N Engineering Filters. “K&N Filters keep the dirt out of our engines,” said Ken Abbot of Jordan Suzuki. “Our engines breathe better and we get more horsepower.”

Normally the team is in the top five, but a few guys were hurt over the weekend, said Abbot. “The guys are training again and getting ready for the next race,” he said. “Michael Jordan has always been a motorsports enthusiast. This team started because he wanted to help one rider fulfill a dream.” The Legendary NBA star formed the team in 2004 as a result of his passion for motorcycle racing. His mission is to bring a new level of excellence and style to the motorcycle racing industry. 

The Jordan Suzuki Team will compete in the ninth round of AMA Superbike at Virginia International Raceway in Alton, Virginia on August 18 and 19.
