AMA Flat Track: Moroney's 1-800-FASTHOG Team Reviews PJ Jacobsen's AMA Flat Track Rookie of the Year Season

A couple of the team techs for PJ Jacobsen's #99B Moroney's 1-800-FASTHOG/Weiss Racing/Shoei/AStars-sponsored XR750 work on one of his machines while another looks on during a break in the on-track action at the Lima Half Mile in June of 2010. PJ went on to win semi 2 later in the day's events ahead of Chad Cose and Mick Kirkness to put it into the main event of round seven of the AMA Pro Flat Track K&N Filters presented by Motorcycle Grand National Championship 2010 season, and finishing the main in the 13th spot. PJ had earlier in the year qualified for his first Expert Twins event in the May running of the Springfield Mile, where he finished in 6th place for his first Grand National main.
PJ and the team went on to qualify for the Lucas Oil Indy Mile (7th place) and the season ending event at the Yavapai Downs Mike (9th place) and went on to win the AMA Pro Flat Track Rookie of the Year Award in the process. PJ also raced for Celtic Racing in the AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike Class and placed 11th in the final year-end standings for the team while campaigning a Suzuki GSX-R600.
Let's hope we see much more of PJ and the Moroney's 1-800-FASTHOG team back in the series running strong again in the 2011 season. Great season guys, and congrats!
PJ Jacobsen had a great year in the four events he was able to campaign in his rookie year of AMA Flat Track Grand National Championship Series racing in 2010, finishing three of those four events in the top 10 and picking up the coveted AMA Pro Flat Track Rookie of the Year Award along the way. Racing for one of the long-time competitors in the series on Pat Moroney's
1-800-FASTHOG-sponsored Harley-Davidson XR750s, the team again put together fast and reliable machines for the new lid on the block in AMA Flat Track racing. And perform he did!

While splitting time in the AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike Class on the road racing side of the calendar, PJ showed he has what it takes to get and keep it at the front while hitting some of the toughest tracks on the schedule. At Springfield, Indy and Prescott Valley, PJ and the team put it in the top ten of each main event and at the rough-and-tumble Lima Half Mile in late June, PJ won his semi and came home 13th in the main event. He finished the year in 18th place in the overall standings with 44 points for his rookie campaign, this again after only four events.

Here's hoping we see much more of PJ next year in the AMA Pro Flat Track K&N Filters presented by Motorcycle Grand National Championship Series.
