Ben Bostrom will compete in the 2011 AMA Pro American SuperBike Championship on a Suzuki GSX-R1000 for Michael Jordan Motorsports. This past season, Bostrom, 36, won one race, had eight podium placings and finished fifth overall racing in the same class on a Pat Clark Motorsports-prepared Yamaha YZF-R1.
“Signing Ben Bostrom is another incredible step in our quest for a SuperBike championship,” said Kreig Robinson, VP of corporate relations for Michael Jordan Motorsports. “Ben’s work ethic and level of dedication, as well as the team’s further development of the Suzuki GSX-R1000, bring us closer to a winning combination.”
Bostrom, a native of Redding, California, won the 1998 AMA Superbike title, the 2008 AMA Supersport championship and the 2009 Daytona 200.
Michael Jordan Motorsports will field another machine with National Guard sponsorship. A second rider has not been announced.
