CZAIA & GALLAHER MAKE HISTORY AS THEIR TEAMHURTBYACCIDENT.COM TAKES THE WIN IN THE AMA PRO RACING SUNTRUST MOTO-GT SERIES

Braselton, Ga... Well-known Florida personal injury and accident attorneys, Czaia and Gallagher, P.A., made history today as their TeamHurtByAccident.com took the victory in the first AMA Pro Racing SunTrust MOTO-GT Series event at Road Atlanta.

Grabbing the Checkered by a margin of victory of 14.267 seconds, team riders Armando Ferrer and Rodolfo Ramirez fought an excellent battle for the entire two-hour event.

Powering off the startline from the pole position, they immediately took the lead and ran in first for most of the race.

"After suffering a broken radiator at Daytona (Round One of the Series), everyone on the team was more than determined to take the win," explains Ramirez. "Our pit stops were great, our Czaia & Gallagher Suzuki GSX-R600 ran perfectly. We got hit with a stop and go penalty for a pace car infraction which caused us to lose the lead. But it wasn't long before we were back out in front. Then there was a Red Flag for oil on the track and that threw our strategy right out the window. However we have a really good crew and they worked it out so we could get the job done."

Recalculating fuel mileage, the crew kept the team out as long as possible to widen the gap. Pulling in the pits for a splash and go and a rider change from Ferrer to Ramirez.

"We lost a couple of spots," said Ferrer, "but we knew the leader had not pitted and calculated that he would run short of fuel before the end of the race. And, that is precisely what happed."

"We are really pleased with the results," said team owner C.J. Czaia. "And I am extremely proud of our entire team. Our win today moved us into 4th place in the point standings, just 15 points out of the lead and we now have a good shot at winning the championship. This is the first time that the MOTO-GT Series has raced at Atlanta and that makes winning doubly special."

In addition to their win in GT-1, TeamHurtByAccident.com also took a 5th place finish in GT-2 with pilots John Linder and Robert Fisher.
