BABUSKA RACING AND FRANKIE BABUSKA REBOUND IN RACE 2 ACTION DURING THE AMA PRO ROAD RACING WEEKEND AT NJMP.
After failing to finish Race 1 held on Saturday of the Kawasaki Devils Showdown at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville NJ, held in horrible conditions due to inclement weather, Frankie Babuska as well as the weather came back on Sunday with much better results. Frankie qualified in 13th position Saturday morning before the rain started but crashed out going into turn 1 halfway through Race 1.
Frankie again lined up on the outside of Row 5 for Race 2 on Sunday, held in near perfect conditions, and battled for most of the race just outside of the top 10, finally bringing the bike home in 12th place. For the 2014 AMA Pro Racing SuperBike season, despite missing 2 rounds, Frankie was able to finish the year 13th in the points championship.
Frankie Babuska – Babuska Racing #16
“This weekend had started out pretty well until mid-day on Saturday when it started to rain. The race had been declared a “wet race” and as it started I had worked my way up to ninth before crashing out unfortunately. Sunday went much better with a dry track and ended up 12th for the AMA Pro Racing season & series finale. Jumping up to SuperBike there was a steep learning curve that I had to overcome and I found myself improving every time I went out there. Overall I am pretty happy with how this year in AMA Pro Racing ended and I’m looking forward to what next year brings. This year wouldn’t have been possible with out my sponsors and most importantly my Dad and the rest of my family who have stood by me from the beginning of my racing adventures. I have to thank my crew as well – Mark Junge, Frank Babuska, Chris Starke, Chad Hasskew & Tim Bemisderfer”
Mark Junge – MCJ Motorsports / Babuska Racing Crew Chief
“Frankie really showed progress this year after switching to the SuperBike class on the Suzuki GSX-R 1000 after the Daytona 200 as he got more and more comfortable with the larger and faster bike. Getting into the top 10 three times this year in the AMA Pro Racing SuperBike class was great and we are going to continue getting Frankie seat time by running several endurance races and the Daytona Race of Champions so that he gets experience on the banking in preparation for next season.”
Frankie Babuska would like to thank his sponsors for the 2014 season: Babuska Racing, MCJ Motorsports, Vesrah, Dunlop, Maxima Racing Oils, Arai Helmets, Vortex, Chicken Hawk Tire Warmers, Hot Bodies, Zero Gravity, Evil Powder Coating, and Hindle Exhaust Systems.
