The Daytona Superbike race is traditionally a war of attrition and the team did not put a lot of emphasis on qualifying. Instead the team used the session to develop a race set up. Thompson was still able to qualify in nineteenth position. At the start of the Superbike race Thompson moved up to twelfth and was battling at the tail end of the factory riders. He had a small problem going into the new horseshoe and dropped back to the twentieth spot. Thompson was able to fight his way back to finish at seventeenth.
“The team did really well and the results don’t show it,” said Team Owner Kevin Hunt. “Ben was fast enough all weekend to finish in the top five in Superstock and the top fifteen in Superbike.”
Team Millennium/KWS Suzuki uses Suzuki GSXR1000 bikes in both classes with K&N Engineering air and oil filters. “We’re really happy with K&N products,” said Crew Chief Michael Godin. “K&N is a product that protects our engine and gives us excellent filtration. We’ve been approached by other filter companies but we won’t switch from K&N. We run a high-performance motorsports shop in South Carolina and we sell K&N products. We build big horsepower motors and want only the best for our engines.”
The next race for Team Millennium/KWS Suzuki will be at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama in April.
