Bostrom Out For Race 2 at Road Atlanta

Braselton (Georgia) - September 5, 2004: Parts Unlimited Ducati Austin's Eric Bostrom will not race on Sunday at Road Atlanta. After visiting a doctor Saturday night, it was decided that Eric will sit out Sunday's AMA Superbike race.

"Unfortunately, Eric has a broken rib and a little damage to the hardware in his shoulder," said Racing Manager Tom Bodenbach, referring to the surgery required to repair Eric's shoulder after a 2003 crash in the Laguna Seca World Superbike race. "Eric should be ready to race at Virginia, though."

Bostrom, winner at this season's Pikes Peak round of the series and the polesitter for the Daytona 200, had hoped for a positive weekend at the home race for the team. The Ducati Austin shop is located near Road Atlanta.

Virginia International Raceway hosts the final races of the AMA Superbike season on September 17-19. Ducati Corse's factory World Supersport rider Lorenzo Lanzi will join Bostrom for the last round of the U.S. series.
