Second GEICO Superbike Shootout Looks Promising For Zemke, Ulrich

After a solid weekend in Fontana, Calif., GEICO Motorcycle Honda SportBike rider Jake Zemke has already put race one of the GEICO Motorcycle Superbike Shootout series behind him to focus on round two, to be held May 3-4 during the Arai Pacific Nationals at Sonoma Raceway.

"I'm definitely looking forward to going to Sonoma," Zemke said. "It's always a great race there. Sonoma Raceway is a true road course and is one of the most physically demanding tracks we will see throughout this year. Plus, you have to love the Northern California crowd that comes out to support what we do. Along with the great crowd, American Federation of Motorcycles has a really strong club scene in Sonoma, so there will be a lot of racers there this weekend.

"We're going to continue to look forward and try to improve the GEICO Honda so we can finally get up on the podium. Our goal right now is to get up to the front of the field and put a little pressure on these other boys."

After round one in Fontana, GEICO Motorcycle Honda American SuperBike rider Chris Ulrich knows that the rest of the GEICO Motorcycle Superbike Shootout series can only get better from here.

"We got through the first weekend in Fontana and I think it's only going to improve," Ulrich said. "Thankfully, this round we have an extra track day on Wednesday. That extra day is really going to help us have more time to dial in the motorcycle before we have to line up on Saturday to practice and qualify.

"Sonoma is just one of those tracks that has been really nice to me but also been really mean to me in my career. It's a very nice track, and I was bummed when it wasn't on the schedule last year. All in all, I look forward to going back there this weekend."

Racing in Sonoma begins May 3 with a full day of practice and qualifying for both pro classes starting at 1:35 p.m. PT. Road racing continues on May 4 with practice at 9 a.m., followed by the Dynojet Pro SportBike race at 10:50 a.m. and the RaceFuelZ Pro SuperBike race at 3:15 p.m.
