“I can’t wait to get back aboard my Harley XR1200 on the high banks of Daytona,” said rider and team co-owner Paul James. “It’s my 20th consecutive season of road racing, and I feel fortunate to participate in the AMA Pro Racing series in a class so close and competitive. And I’m excited to share the experience with our sponsors, supporters and especially with the wounded veterans.”
