Corey Alexander & RideHVMC Freeman Racing Return To MotoAmerica Podium This Past Weekend2019-06-07 20:10
The RideHVMC Freeman Kawasaki racing team with support from RARacing and JJD Corp is happy to celebrate a return to the podium this past weekend in MotoAmerica's Superstock 1000cc class at Road America. With the help of the team at Gemini Racing as well as Richie Alexander and DJ Uithoven, we finished the bike just the Wednesday night prior to the weekend. After more than a 2 year hiatus from professional road racing Corey was able to show up with no time whatsoever spent on the brand new 2019 Kawasaki ZX-10R and immediately get up to speed.
The number 23 machine started both races from the 11th position after facing some small technical issues in qualifying. Saturdays race resulted in a 6th place finish even while facing some electronic glitches. Sunday's race went much better and Corey was able to work his way into a 3rd place podium finish on the last lap of the 8 lap race. We are very pleased with the capabilities of the Kawasaki and eager to spend some more time developing the bike after only completing less than 60 laps on the machine.
Corey adds, "It's been a long two years being away from the MotoAmerica paddock. In the back of my mind and bottom of my heart it's really where I want to be and so I've worked tirelessly to make this past weekend happen. I'm thankful for my supporters that have stuck behind me and the new ones that helped to reach these results. My new Kawasaki ZX-10R worked extremely well and I felt so comfortable on the bike. With some more time I think we could be a serious contender each and every weekend we are able to show up to the track. Thanks to Pete and Otis for working so hard in the two weeks prior to the race to get the bike built. Hopefully we will make some more rounds!"
