ATLANTIC MOTORSPORT PARK: Jordan Szoke will look to keep his charge towards a 12th MOPAR Canadian Superbike championship going strong as the National superbike series heads for the Rollercoaster known as Atlantic Motorsport Park.

Szoke leads Bodhi Edie by 10 points heading to round five, set for this weekend July 13-16 with a bonus for race fans heading to the track just outside Shubenacadie—the Pro Superbike and Pro sport bike classes will have two feature races during the weekend action.

On July 14, race action kicks off as practices hits the track for all classes, including qualifying for pro classes.

On July 15, there will be practice for all classes in morning, while qualifying for Ninja 300 Series will take place. Qualifying for remaining classes will occur in afternoon. The Ninja 300 Series race; Pro Superbike and Pro Sport Bike races will take the green flag in the afternoon.

The action kicks into high gear on July 16 with practices for all classes in the morning, and the green flag waving on final feature races in the afternoon.

Local pro rookie rider Jacob Shaw-O’Leary of Falmouth is hoping to be back on track at the AMP national series race following a crash that left him injured at Shannonville. He was expecting to miss around a month, depending on the outcome of a follow up visit to a local Plastic Surgeon, once he starts to heal.

Additional support class races will be provided by the local series, the Society of Atlantic Roadracing League. This action will include plenty of local racers who take to AMP during their regional races.

Tickets for the race are available at Pro Cycle, online at procycleonline.ca, and CSBK.ca. They are $40 for a weekend pass.
