The Road Trip for Sullivan continues in Pomona

Pomona, CA -- For 19-year old Katie Sullivan the 2010 season has been a trying one for her and the Girls For A Change, Sullivan Drilling, JP's Paint and Body Pro Stock Motorcycle team. This season marked the first time they were able to get out and hit the road attending more races then they had in the past. While they would hope to have been further along in their developments, the learning curve has kept the team humble. "It's definitely been a year of mental struggles and honestly we may have set our expectations too high for our first year full-time racing in the Pro category, so we have retreated back to basic's." Sullivan said. "Every day is a new step in the right direction I feel, so we are looking forward to getting back out there and putting some quality runs on the bike".

The team is working with a new motor combination in the Zebra-Zilla Suzuki, which means all new data, and testing constantly to find the right combination of horsepower, clutch and gearing. "At Vegas we couldn't get the thing down the track and it was disappointing, but we believe with more runs we'll figure it out and with the off-season coming up it will give us more time to test and be ready to step up against the big dogs in 2011."

The team is still seeking a primary partner for the 2011 season and beyond to sustain the race operations needed to compete every week in the highly contested NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle category. "We have a great crew, we do this for the love of the sport and we will be out here either way, I wouldn't want to do anything else, we just need some additional funding and we are talking to some folks, so we'll get there."
