MID-OHIO PROVES TO BE A BANNER WEEKEND FOR THE CROZIER ROBERSON MOTORSPORTS/DNA ENERGY DRINK TEAM

Lexington, Ohio...(July 18, 2010) the Honda Super Cycle Weekend vPresented by Dunlop Tire at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course proved to be a banner weekend for the Crozier Roberson Motorsports/DNA Energy Drink Team.

Taking two top ten finishes in the AMA Pro SuperSport class, DNA Energy Drink pilot Joey Pascarella grabbed the 2010 SuperSport West title for DNA Energy Drink.

"We came into this event with a large lead in the point's battle coming," explains Pascarella. "We knew if we finished ahead of Elena Myers, we could take the title and that was our goal. Everything went according to plan and I couldn't be more pumped.

Crozier Roberson Motorsports is a really good team and DNA Energy Drink is a great sponsor. It is really awesome to bring both of them this Championship. Now that we have the title locked up, we can go for the win at Laguna Seca and I'm definitely looking forward to that."

For Bobby Fong, Mid-Ohio also proved to be an outstanding weekend as he took back-to-back podium finishes for the team in both AMA Pro Daytona SportBike races.

"We finally got the monkey off our back and showed what we can do," said an obviously elated Fong, who earned a second on Saturday and a third on Sunday. "Those are my best finishes in this series to date. The team gave me an incredible Ducati. It ran flawlessly all weekend. They really out did themselves. I want to congratulate Joey for winning the SuperSport West crown."

Adding additional words of praise was teammate Michael Beck who unfortunately didn't have as good a weekend as Fong and Pascarella.

"This was just one of those 'that's racing' weekends," said Beck. "I got a good start today and was already moving up through the field when we had a mechanical that put us out of the race. But, we will be ready for Monterey and that should be a good one for us."

"Getting two podium finishes and a championship, all is one weekend, is unbelievable," smiles co-team owner Robbie Roberson. We had hoped to do well this time out, but I didn't dream the weekend would be this spectacular. It is amazing."

"I am so proud of everyone on this team, said team manager and co-owner Mark Crozier. "They did an outstanding job. All the long hours and their determination definitely paid off. Things are good and I know there is more to come. Both Robbie and I want to thank all our sponsors who made winning the title possible, especially DNA Energy Drink. They are a pleasure to work with and we are looking forward to carrying their banner on to the podium time and time again."
