Pascarella To 200 with Project 1 Atlanta

Cycle News Staff | March 2, 2012

Project 1 Atlanta, the team that Jake Zemke rode for in last year’s Daytona 200, will return to the battle with Joey Pascaralla in an effort to raise awareness for the March of Dimes March for Babies.

The deal was put together by team owner Perry Melnecuic after he was contacted by former racer and fan Jim Bronson.

“We are extremely flattered to have the opportunity to support the March of Dimes and promote awareness to such a great cause,” said Melneciuc in a team release. “We are equally excited to have Joey Pascarella, a very talented young rider, join our team. I have watched Joey come up the ranks as a Red Bull Rookie, to his AMA Championship in the Supersport West in 2010, as well as his ventures in Europe in 2011. It’s obvious from his results that Joey has the speed and talent to run with the guys at the front.”
