Michael Jordan Motorsports Daytona Segment to Air on ESPN E:60 on Tuesday May 4th


Aaron Yates can be seen sitting in the back of the paddock area of Michael Jordan Motorsports at Elkhart Lake in June of 2008. Yates' AMA Superbike and AMA Superstock bikes are being worked on by the team techs between practice sessions.
Hannah Storm from ESPN interviewed team owner Michael Jordan while in Daytona back in March and was on hand for the team's first two AMA Superbike victories by Jake Zemke over the course of the segment being filmed. It will be shown on Tuesday, May 4th at 7:00 P.M. EDT on ESPN.

The segment on Michael Jordan's AMA team that was filmed by ESPN at Daytona back in March will air on the original ESPN channel on their 'E:60' program this Tuesday. Jordan Motorsports' own Jake Zemke won MJ's first premier class races at Daytona and the ESPN crew was on hand to film some of the action and to talk with MJ about his venture into AMA Road Racing which started in 2004.
Team mate Aaron Yates took fourth place in both of those races, and is currently on the sidelines with a broken leg suffered at the next round at Fontana. Yates was originally expected to miss 8-12 weeks which would put him in line to return on/around round 5 at Road America June 4-6. Canadian hot shoe Brett McCormick filled in for Yates on the team's #23 mount and is expected to do so again at the next round at Infineon Raceway May 14-16.
Thanks to the crew at for the link to the story link below that details what to expect from the show. You can catch it on ESPN on Tuesday, May 4th at 7:00 P.M. EDT.
