CZAIA & GALLAGHER'S TEAMHURTBYACCIDENT.COM SET TO TAKE ROAD AMERICA BY STORM

Bradenton, Fla...Ready to take Road America by storm, Czaia & Gallagher's TeamHurtByAccident.com is off to Elkhart Lake, Wis., for Round 6 of the AMA Pro Road Racing Series, June 5-7.

Running in both the SuperSport Series and the SunTrust MOTO-GT Series, TeamHurtByAccident.com will showcase the talents of former Venezuelan 600cc champion Armando Ferrer, who will be doing double duty. Running with fellow Venezuelan Rodolfo Ramirez, this top-tanked duo are currently tied for the lead in MOTO-GT-1.

"We plan to change that this weekend," echo both Ferrer and Ramirez, who pilot the team's Number 69 Suzuki GSX-R600. "We want that Number One spot and fully intend to get it this time out. We took the Checkered at Road Atlanta and a second at Barber last month, now we want another first place."

Flying the Czaia & Gallagher colors in MOTO-GT-2 are the father and son team of Filice and Filice aboard the Number 64 Ducati PS1000LE and the team of John Linder and Robert Fisher piloting the Number 59 Ducati PS1000LE.

"Road America last year was my very first road race win," says Justin Filice, who took the class win for Czaia & Gallaher. "My dad was racing for a different team and also took the win for his class so it was pretty awesome. However, taking the victory together would really be spectacular and that's what we are looking to do."

"Racing with my son is the best," adds Jimmy Filice, who now lives with Justin in Daytona Beach, Fla. "Our win at Barber moved the team into third place in GT-2. We are just three points out of second and 23 points out of first. With six rounds left to go in this year's series, there is no doubt that we can move into first place."

Equally as determined to win are John Linder and Robert Fisher."We are ready to turn it up a notch," says Linder, who hails from Tampa, Fla. "We had some mechanical problems earlier this season, but I think we have everything sorted out and we should definitely be good to go."

"I'm ready to go," adds Sarasota resident Robert Fisher. "I have been training a lot over the past month and am set for some action. Road America is one of my favorite tracks and I think we can do well there."

"Everything is in place," sums up team owner C.Jn. Czaia. "I am definitely proud of our entire team and they just keep getting better and better. We're in the championship mode and plan to keep it that way.
