Richie Morris Racing Signs Eslick to Ride Buell in AMA Daytona SportBike

Richie Morris Racing recently announced the team will field a second Buell 1125R in the AMA Daytona Sportbike class sponsored by Bruce Rossmeyer’s Daytona Racing and Shelly Rossmeyer Motorcycles of Daytona and piloted by young gun Danny Eslick. The team will join the previously announced RMR/GEICO Powersports¬ sponsored 1125R with rider Michael Barnes.

“We’ve been working on this deal since we announced the GEICO team, and it’s great to finally reveal our plans for the second team,” said Richie Morris. “Bruce and I have been partners since 1994 and it is exciting to continue our relationship. It is equally exciting to have a young hard charger like Danny on board.”

Eslick, 22, of Broken Arrow, OK, started his career racing flat track motorcyles before turning to road racing. He finished third in the 2005 AMA Formula Xtreme championship, with a fourth place finish in that year’s Daytona 200. In 2008, he finished tenth in the AMA’s Supersport class with two podium finishes and seven top 10 results and finished 11th in the final Formula Xtreme season standings.

“I am excited to begin a new era in my racing,” said Eslick, who is switching to Buell after several seasons aboard Suzukis. “I have known Michael Barnes for years and we work well together. I can’t wait to learn from him and have some sweet battles up front,” he added. “I would like to thank Richie Morris, Barney, Mom, Grand Ma, and everyone who helped.”

“With the addition of Buell to my new store at Destination Daytona this was a perfect fit,” said Shelly Rossmeyer. “My dad and I are excited about the new series and looking forward to working with Richie Morris and Danny.”
