Michael Jordan Motorsports announced today that it has signed Roger Lee Hayden to its 2011 AMA Pro Racing National Guard Superbike Championship team. Hayden will join Ben Bostrom on the MJM Suzuki GSX-R1000, as Aaron Yates has elected to take more time to heal his injured leg, which he broke at Fontana earlier this year.
Hayden comes back to AMA Racing after competing in World Superbike with Kawasaki last season, and taking a one-off MotoGP ride with LCR Honda at Laguna Seca and a Moto2 ride with American Honda at Indianapolis.
At 27 years old, Roger Lee is the youngest of the Hayden brothers, and has 14 career wins since 2004, along with 38 professional podiums. “I’m so excited to be a part of Team Jordan! These guys have a great crew and I’m excited to get on the bike as soon as possible. I’m ready to show what I’m made of… It’s also good to be home, there’s no place like home,” said Hayden while clicking his heels together (not really).
