As discussed at the GEICO Powersports press conference in December…RMR announced today the official news of the Bruce Rossmeyer Daytona Race team. The team will field a Buell 1125R in the AMA Daytona Sportbike series. Teaming with the GEICO Powersports RMR Buell …the rider will be Danny Eslick.
“It is nice to finally reveal our plans for the second team” says Richie Morris. “As everyone knows…Bruce and I have been partners since 1994 and it is exciting to continue our relationship. It is equally exciting to have a young hard charger like Danny on board”.
The team will be also be sponsored by Shelly Rossmeyer Motorcycles of Daytona, GEICO Powersports, and Buell Motorcycle Company.
“With the addition of Buell to my new store at Destination Daytona…this was a perfect fit” says Shelly Rossmeyer. “My dad and I are excited about the new series and looking forward to working with RMR, GEICO, and Buell”.
Danny Eslick has been with Suzuki the past few years and was on the podium last season. “I am excited to begin a new era in my racing! I have known Michael Barnes for years and we work well together. I can’t wait to learn from him and have some sweet battles up front” says an excited Eslick. “I would like to thank Richie Morris, Barney, Mom, Grand Ma, and everyone who helped put this deal together”!
“From a marketing standpoint, I am really excited about Danny joining the team” says Breeann Poland. “He has built a name for him self and is amazing to watch. His dirt track style and hunger to be up front fits well with the Rossmeyer image. “Pairing a younger rider with a veteran like Barnes will make both teams a force to reckon with at all AMA events”.
Both the GEICO Powersports / RMR Buell Team and the Bruce Rossmeyer Daytona Racing / RMR Buell Team are planning an extensive marketing campaign throughout the 2009 race season.
