Celtic Racing To Field Alexander And Farris In 2014 AMA SuperSport

Orient Express and K-Tech Suspension will continue to provide technicians and valued trackside support for both riders, as they compete in the SuperSport class with Corey Alexander riding the #5 Suzuki GSX-R 600 that he used to win the 2013 AMA SuperSport East championship while finishing second overall.

We have a great team, loaded with potential – which should translate into race results!” stated Alexander.
