Mikey Martin makes his way to a podium finish in second start with Weirbach Racing!
The 2011 Pro Singles champ wasted no time getting back in the groove with his old team. This time as a Expert/GNC1 rider. Mikey Martin has re-joined Ted & Dick Weirbach owners of Weirbach Racing. The same team that helped him win his 2011 AMA Pro Singles Championship. If his 3rd place Expert Twins finish at Volusia Speedway in Barberville, Fla and a 6th place on the fast clay 1/2 mile in Savannah, Ga. was an indicator as to how his season will go, plan to see more podium finishes for this team.
Martin who has spent the first 3 seasons as an AMA Expert/GCN1 rider with the Bonneville Performance/ Castol/ Triumph team says he has learned a lot of the past few seasons and is eager to take on the competition.
I have learned a lot of the past 3 seasons. Making that step from Pro Singles to Expert Twins isn¹t always easy, but I feel confident that I can be a contender this season. If we concentrate on consistency and solid finishes, we will be in the hunt this season. Last year, coming off of an injury was difficult. This season I¹m better prepared, I¹m more fit and I¹m focused. I¹m really excited to see what the Weirbach Kawasaki Twin will do on the Springfield Mile.² Weirbach Racing is also supporting Martin in his 450cc efforts. Finishing 5th at the Savannah 1/2 mile race and 4th at Volusia in the Expert Singles, Martin knows his Singles rides will improve. The results were not near as good at the GNC short track in Daytona Beach, Fl. as he failed to make the main event either night.
