Schwantz To Race At Road America
May 31, 2005

From a Press Release

Schwantz to ride with Team EMGO Taiwan for Caylor at Road America

Elkhart Lake, WI ( 31 May, 05) -- 1993 MotoGP World Champion Kevin Schwantz
will be returning to AMA road-racing at Road America this weekend aboard the
Team EMGO Taiwan, Formula Xtreme, Suzuki GSX-R 600. Schwantz will be subbing
for Chris “Opie” Caylor who will be with his wife Tracy at home awaiting their
now over-due baby.

“I have a responsibility to my sponsors but not only do they completely
understand my situation, it’s actually them that are telling me to stay at
home with my wife and soon to be family,” said Caylor. “There’s only a few
people I would completely trust with my program and Kevin is definitely on the
top of that list. He’s been helping me and Team EMGO Taiwan at every round
with advice and mentoring and he was actually the one that brought up him
riding for me!”

“I look forward to returning to the fiercely competitive racing in AMA,” said
Schwantz from his Kevin Schwantz Suzuki School at Road Atlanta. “Ope’s been an
instructor for the school since the day it opened and I’m glad I can help him
by riding for his team at [Road America]”.

Schwantz’ return to the AMA will be assisted by Caylor’s and Team EMGO
Taiwan’s crew chief: Craig “Huey” Stewart. “Of course, I wish Opie was here
continuing to build his points but I certainly respect his commitment to his
growing family,” said Stewart. “Who could ask for a better sub than a true
icon?”

More information about Kevin Schwantz and the Kevin Schwantz Suzuki School can
be found on the web at www.SchwantzSchool.com.

Did anyone see him in the "parade" at lunch on Sunday? He was right behind the first pace car (and that wonderful "American Chopper" contraption).

He still can ride, though. Didn't get any lap times on him, but he seemed to be holding his own.

Yeah, his front tire washed out on him on a tar strip at Canada Corner on lap 3.
