With the start of the 2013 AMA Pro Superbike Championship season quickly approaching, Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing is excited to welcome newest team member Martin Cardenas to its extremely successful ranks. Cardenas joins returning rider Chris Clark in contesting the championship-winning Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000 in the premier AMA Pro Superbike class, starting with round one at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, FL, March 14 - 16.
The upcoming year marks Clark’s sophomore season with Yoshimura Suzuki. In 2012, Clark worked closely with his new team and familiarized himself with the Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000. Looking at the season as a learning curve, Clark picked up nine top-10 finishes and his best results were three seventh-place finishes. Clark missed the last few rounds due to illness, but wound up 12th in the overall championship points.
"I’m really excited to start my second season with Yoshimura Suzuki," said Clark. "Last year was definitely a learning year for me; not only learning a new bike and team, but learning where I need to improve as a rider. I believe I showed some really good speed toward the end of the season, now I just need to translate that into good results. I’d like to thank everybody at Yoshimura and Suzuki for this opportunity, and I can't wait for Daytona and the rest of the season on my 2013 Suzuki GSX-R1000."
Good luck guys, go grab that championship by the scruff of the neck again. Jo
