Johnstown, Ohio (August 30, 2011) After an engine failure at Mid Ohio shortened his weekend of racing, Ryan Kerr and the Ryan Kerr Racing team are ready to get back on the track at New Jersey Motorsports Park. “My second season competing in the AMA Pro SuperSport East Series has certainly been surrounded with ups and downs but I am hopeful that with a strong finish in New Jersey that I can meet my goal of being an overall top 5 finisher for the season.”
Coming out of Mid Ohio with a second row qualifying start has given Kerr the confidence to be a front runner off the grid of NJMP's Thunderbolt circuit. “Qualifying has been a challenge for me, Kerr explains, but I feel that I now have what it takes to be a leading qualifier in New Jersey. I plan on starting up front and finishing up front at the event on September 2 – 4.”
The Ryan Kerr Racing team and his team of sponsors have been devoted to providing top of the line equipment throughout the past season. “My team has done an exceptional job of having my bikes race ready at every event and I truly appreciate their hard work and support. We have had some unfortunate setbacks this season with unexpected mechanical challenges but we continue to rally and I plan on finishing the season strong.”
Competing in the last race of the season for the AMA Pro SuperSport East Series presents ample opportunity to move up the point’s ladder. Ryan Kerr and the Ryan Kerr Racing Team plan on utilizing lessons learned this year and applying them on the track at Thunderbolt Raceway. Kerr states, “Thunderbolt was good to me last year and is one of my favorite tracks. I look forward to being a top contender at the upcoming event. Finally, I want to send out my thoughts to all of those on the East Coast impacted by Hurricane Irene. Racing seems secondary when you witness the destruction and impact of so many lives from such a powerful storm.”
