The closing round of the AMA Daytona Sportbike season is now just days away and the Riders Discount Triumph semi is about to roll into the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for the second, and final time this year. The season has had its ups and downs, but both of the team’s riders, Joey Pascarella and Jake Zemke, are more than ready take to the track aboard their 2013 Triumph Daytona 675R’s for their last AMA ride of the year. The team’s previous outing in New Jersey may have had mixed results, with Zemke capturing two top tens and Pascarella running into bad luck in both races, but there was lot of developmental progress made with the bikes. Everyone involved with the team is looking forward to a strong finale as they share the Laguna Seca paddock with the World Superbike Championship this weekend.
“I’m very excited heading into Laguna,” said Joey Pascarella. “Its always nice to not only race close to home, but also to have it be a track that I enjoy as much as this one. The team has been putting a lot of effort into working on the bikes and we’ve made a lot of progress in the weeks leading up to this round. I have a good feeling about this weekend and think it will be a good one on the Riders Discount Triumph.”
“I’m really looking forward to the race this weekend at Laguna Seca,” commented Zemke. “The Riders Discount team made some great improvements to the Triumph last time out, and I know they’ve been working on the bikes non-stop since then. The crew and I are excited to get back out to the track so that we can see how much more we can get out of the bike. I’ve only been with the team for a few races, but I’m looking to finish off the season strong.”
Team manager Bree Poland had this to say, “I can’t believe we have just one round left! The team has really come together and we are starting to see some major progress. We may not have lit the world on fire with our results this year, but had we had a little more time I think we would have. The riders have been great as well. This is my third season working with Joey Pascarella and I believe in his talent. I would love to see him leave Laguna with a good finish. Bringing Jake on the team for the last few rounds was a really good choice as well. He has really helped bring our program to the next level.”
“I want to personally thank Triumph for providing us the opportunity to race their bikes”, she went on to say. “As well as all of our sponsors who have supported us and stood by our side. I’m hoping that we can do everyone proud at Laguna this weekend, and go into the off-season on a positive note.”
