Danny Eslick narrowly missed out on the 2010 Daytona Sportbike Championship, but Eslick and his GEICO Powersports RMR Suzuki team will be back for another shot at the title in 2011.Eslick has just resigned with the RMR team, and will be riding a Suzuki GSX-R600 during the 2011 season in the Daytona Sportbike class.
“I’m excited to be working with my same team and crew again next year,” said Eslick. “Richie (Morris) has been great and I really want to ride the new 2011 GSX-R600, too. It sounds and looks like a great bike and certainly has a lot of potential.”
Eslick joined the GEICO Powersports team in 2009, and won the DSB title in his debut year with the team. Eslick finished second in 2010, but was one of the most consistent riders on the track. Eslick won three races this year, and never finished below 7th.
“We’ve had a super run so far and hopefully we’ll be able to continue our momentum and do well again next year. This season we had a fantastic year defending the championship but came up just short against some great riders and teams. It was a blast with a lot of good battles on the track, but we’re looking to get the job done and win back the number one plate again.
“My career really took off when I joined the team and that was a big part of my decision to stay. It’s been a big step forward for me and we’ll continue to work together and build on the experience we’ve gained. One thing I know is that when I show up at the track, my guys have taken care of everything and that it’s up to me to go for it.”
