After attending the first two rounds on the AMA GoPro Daytona Sportbike schedule, Canadian racer Ben Young and the BYR/Fogi Racing team have made the tough decision to skip the upcoming round at Infineon Raceway in California.
“It was a very difficult decision to not make the trip to Infineon Raceway,” admitted Team Manager Scott Young. “With the rounds being held so close together, available budget, work obligations and the distances involved for us we had to reluctantly opt out of this round. We need to spend our budget wisely to get the best results with what we have for the remainder of the season”.
Although Young sits toward the back of the pack in Daytona Sportbike point standings, the 18-year-old from Thornbury, ON has shown the potential to be a frontrunner. Technical glitches and bad luck have stymied what has been a promising start to the Scottish-Canadian’s 2012 campaign.
Young and Co. will be back in action at the end of the month when the AMA Pro Road Racing tour heads to Miller Motorsports Park in Utah on May 26-28.
