The following is from Roadrace Factory…
In what is probably the worst kept secret in the paddock over the last few days, we are pleased to announce the addition of Bobby Fong as the second rider for the remainder of the 2018 Season.
We’d like to thank Jayson Uribe for all his hard work during the west coast rounds. He really provided us the opportunity to put a second bike on the grid. His performance provided us with enough confidence that we could field a second machine for the rest of the season. Genuine Broaster Chicken / Honda has decided to continue with Jayson in the form of help with his remaining AFM Races aboard his own Honda CBR1000RR. We wish him well with his future in racing. Jayson is part of our extended family and will continue to coach at our sister organization, American Supercamp.
Bobby Fong brings a tremendous amount of skill and knowledge to our program that we are hoping to capitalize on in order to finish this season as strong as possible. As this is his first time on a Honda, we will be conducting a test between Sonoma and Pittsburgh to help familiarize him with his new ride.
Welcome to the team Bobby! Ride Red!
Bobby Fong – 50
“I’m very happy to be on-board the Genuine Broaster Chicken / Honda / RoadRace Factory team for the remainder of the season. I’ve known for a long time that they have a pretty tight family under their canopy. Everyone seems to get along and I can tell that they all work well with each other. The Honda has seemed to make a lot of progress this season so I’m pretty excited to get on the bike and see what I can do! I’m going to give this opportunity a 110%. This is a new challenge for me as the Honda is completely unknown to me, so that gives me a lot of motivation to learn the bike and finish this season strong. I’d like to thank Danny Walker and everyone at Genuine Broaster Chicken / Honda for providing this opportunity to me. I can’t wait to get going at Pittsburgh!”
