BRADENTON, Fla. - Looking to move back up to the front of the field, Czaia & Gallagher's TeamHurtByAccident.com are ready for Round 5 of the AMA Pro Racing SunTrust MOTO-GT Series at Heartland Park Topeka, July 31-August 1.
"We had problems at the last two rounds," says team owner C.J. Czaia. "Hopefully this time out will break our string of bad luck. In short, we are hoping that the third time is the charm."
With five races complete, there have been five different winners so far this season and no one has a lock on the championship. It is very much still any team's game.
"The points are really close between the top five teams in GT-1," continues Czaia. We are sitting in fifth, just seven points out of the lead. There are four rounds left and there is no doubt that with a little luck we can take over the lead."
Last year only Rodolfo Ramirez and Justin Filice ran at Heartland Park Topeka and took second place despite suffering tire problems.
"I really like this track", says Filice, with obvious enthusiasm. "It's definitely a high speed track and that's the sort of place I seem to excel at. We did really well last year despite our problems and I know we can do better this time out."
"We are going to take our fastest riders and put them on our No. 69 Suzuki GSX-R600. We are going to decide after practice who this will be. While all of our riders are fast some excel at certain tracks and we want to find out who that will be this time out. They have made some track changes since last year so everyone will be pretty much on the same page. In addition, we will also be running our Ducati PS1000LE in GT-2.
Competing in the SunTrust MOTO-GT Series since its inception in the fall of 2006, Czaia & Gallagher are well versed in what it takes to win in this type of team competition.
"This type of racing is truly all about the entire team," sums up Czaia. "We have reorganized some of our crew and everyone is totally together. We want this championship and we are determined to win. This weekend should be a good race for us."
