Celtic Hudson Valley Motorcycles Suzuki Racing’s Corey Alexander and Wyatt Farris are excited to rejoin the championship battle this weekend at the legendary Mid Ohio Sports Car Course. The 2.4 mile Mid Ohio circuit is known as one of the most challenging and demanding for riders, which rewards riders with technical skill and well timed aggression. Last year’s AMA Pro SuperSport events saw Alexander bring home a fourth place finish in race two, with a seventh place in race one after starting from sixth position on the grid. Farris had a similarly successful weekend at Mid Ohio in 2013, with a ninth place start yielding a strong sixth place finish in race one and an eleventh in race two. Both Celtic/HVMC Suzuki riders are determined to improve on their previous results and return to the top of the podium where they started the 2014 season.
Corey Alexander arrives at Mid Ohio tied for first place in the points with rival Hayden Gillim. Alexander stated “The last few weeks off have been really good for me. I’ve done a lot of riding and I feel my shoulder is basically back to 100% strength. Mid Ohio is a very fun track for me, and I feel we have the potential to do well this weekend, building on what we learned as a team during last years races. I’m very anxious for the weekend to begin, because the results of this weekend will be very influential in the championship battle. I’m confident in the team and what we are capable of when everything is working well. I have to give a big thanks to the whole team and all of my sponsors including MJRS Freeman, Spidi Leathers, XPD Boots, Arai Helmets, Boxed Water Is Better, Defy All Odds Apparel, Oakley, Crossfit OSA, and Lapizta Watches.” Please follow Corey Alexander on twitter and Instagram via @corey5alexander , keep track of him on Facebook at www.facebook.com/corey5alexander , and check out his webpage – www.corey23.com – as well.
Wyatt Farris is firmly in fourth place in the point standings as the 2014 season enters the second half at Mid Ohio. “I’m really looking forward to getting back on my Celtic/ HVMC Suzuki GSXR 600 on Saturday and starting the weekend! I had a good weekend at Mid Ohio last year, and I know that is going to pay dividends for us this weekend. Both the team and I are looking to put a solid weekend together and bring home the results our sponsors deserve!” Wyatt’s personal sponsors include: Jon Block Group, Cortech, Shoei, Defy All Odds Apparel, Above Category, and CT Racing.
