Michael Jordan Motorsports has confirmed that it has re-signed rider Roger Lee Hayden to represent the team again. Hayden will be back on the Suzuki GSX-R1000 for the 2012 AMA Pro Racing National Guard Superbike Championship. The bike will also again be sponsored by the Army National Guard.
Hayden had a respectable showing in the AMA Superbike Championship last year, with two podium finishes. The rider finished sixth overall and will be looking to give it another go this year.
“I’m really excited to be returning to Michael Jordan Motorsports and representing the Army National Guard again,” said Hayden in the team press release. “The team and I really came on strong near the end of the season and I hope that we can keep that momentum going into next year. I feel like I have one of the best crews in the paddock so it’s great to keep the same unit together.”
Roger Lee is part of one of the most famous families in all of motorsports, as he and both of his brothers race superbikes professionally. Tommy Hayden competes in AMA Superbike alongside Roger, while his older brother Nicky races in MotoGP.
