I'm not really a name dropper but all of these people below and even beyond it have helped me so much in my career to where I am now in the World Championship. Never forget the struggles, the people that have helped you, and where you came from. You can't just do it on your own in life, well some people can but if you have the right people that have worked right by your side and not quit like you haven't you will accomplish a lot. So thank you : Barry, Skip from Orient Express, Bigman Mark Kelly, Bobby Weiss, William Myers his dad, his whole family, Rich Hanson, Dennis Espinosa, My dad, my gf Danielle and all my friends back home.

Celtic HVMC Suzuki Racing Finishes 2014 AMA Pro Racing Season With 3rd + 4th Place Overall

Celtic Hudson Valley Motorcycles Suzuki Racing had a strong 2014 season in AMA Pro Racing SuperSport, with #19 Wyatt Farris taking third place in the overall standings, and teammate #5 Corey Alexander taking fourth position. The final race weekend at New Jersey Motorsports Park saw Farris finish fourth on Saturday, and third on Sunday, with Alexander taking twenty-third on Saturday and sixth on Sunday.

Saturday's race at NJMP was cut short due to rain which created slippery conditions and several crashes in the forty-eight rider field. The start of the race was relatively dry with damp patches around the track, but by lap eight the rain was falling and at least four riders went down as the track conditions quickly changed. Wyatt Farris had a good start on his #19 Celtic/HVMC Suzuki GSX-R 600 and was in the pack of riders chasing down the leaders most of the race. Unfortunately Farris would succumb to the changing track conditions and went down on lap eight. Corey Alexander had a good start on his #5 Celtic/HVMC Suzuki GSX-R 600, but drifted back to twenty-third position where he would finish the race after the flag waved. Alexander never felt comfortable on the bike in the damp conditions, and the shortened weekend format did not work to his benefit.

The weather for Sunday was almost perfect for racing, with all the rain and wet conditions from the previous day just a memory. Again, Farris had a good start and Alexander was close behind as the lead group pulled away from the field. Farris and Alexander would do battle for most of the race with De Keyrel and Miller Jr. in a four rider battle for third place. Farris enjoyed a race long battle with De Keyrel from flag to flag, but was able to stay in front at the checkered flag - taking third place in the championship and the final spot on the podium as well. Alexander rode well and was much more at ease, but could not find a way past Miller Jr. or De Keyrel before the checkered flag dropped and would finish sixth on Sunday, securing fourth overall in the season championship.

The 2014 season was a demonstration of consistency by Wyatt Farris, with only two finishes outside the top five, and four podium finishes as well. Wyatt Farris was pleased to finish the season in third position, and stated that "Saturday was a very interesting race with the conditions. I don't have much experience ridding in wet weather, so I was happy to bring it home in fourth. Going into Sunday and knowing it was going to be dry, I felt we had a really good chance to be at the front. Unfortunately, my team and I made the wrong tire choice and I didn't have the pace that the two leaders did. Even though I really wanted to try and fight for my first win, being on the box in third and ending the season third in the championship isn't so bad. I really have to give it up to the whole Celtic/HVMC Suzuki Racing team! Barry, Richie, Will, Dustin, Chris, Mark, Tim, Spike, Skip, Pete and the rest of the boys back at Gemini worked their butts off for Corey and me all year long. Along with them, I want to thank all of our team sponsors that supported us this year, it's a honor to work with such great companies. Last but certainly not least, I want to thank my personal sponsors and supporters, this year would not have been possible without the support from the following: Jon Block Group Sports, Cortech Leathers, Shoei Helmets, Above Category, CT Racing, Defy All Odds, Osmo Nutrition, Jason Pridmore, and my family and friends." You can keep up with Wyatt Farris via Instagram or Twitter @wyattfarris19 or join him on Facebook at www.facebook.com/wyattfarrisracing .

For Corey Alexander, the 2014 season started with three straight wins and four pole positions, and then became much more challenging for the young rider. Certainly having learned a great deal, Alexander said "I'd be lying if I thought this is how the year would've ended after how it started. I'm definitely disappointed to not be bringing home another championship for my team and crew. I'm even more disappointed in myself after this weekends results. For a few different reasons I lost a bit of confidence, and as well the big gap between races and the two day schedule really threw me off. We have one of the best hardest working group of guys in the paddock, and they deserved more than I was able to give them. Unfortunately that's racing and we can only move forward. I have to give a huge thanks to the whole Celtic Hudson Valley Motorcycles Suzuki Racing team, my crew, and all of our sponsors. We were lucky enough to be out there racing, being on the best equipment as well, it's a blessing. I'm anxious to see what next year holds, hopefully only positive things from here forward. Thanks Mark, Tim, Barry, Uncle Richie, Skip, Chris, Jason, Jon, and Pat for making this year possible! Many thanks to all of the team sponsors for their support, and my personal sponsors who helped make this season possible, including MJRS Freeman, Spidi Leathers, XPD Boots, Arai Helmets, Boxed Water Is Better, Defy All Odds Apparel, Oakley, Crossfit OSA, and Lapizta Watches."

Celtic HVMC Suzuki's Alexander & Farris Excited To Finish 2014 Season On High Note

This weekend marks the final stop for the 2014 AMA Pro Racing season, with the Celtic Hudson Valley Motorcycles Suzuki team visiting their home track at New Jersey Motorsports Park. Every season more and more local family, friends, and fans make the trip to the track, and this weekend the Celtic HVMC Suzuki team are planning to put on another good show. Wyatt Farris is in third position in the SuperSport championship going into this final round with 144 points, with Corey Alexander just behind in fourth position with 141 points. The long break since the last round at Mid-Ohio has given the team and both riders plenty of time to prepare, and everyone has been working hard to be focused and ready.

Wyatt Farris rode his #19 Celtic/HVMC Suzuki GSX-R 600 to a third place and a fifth place finish at Mid-Ohio, gaining valuable points in the championship, and managing to stay in contention for a strong finish to the season. Farris is eager to return to the saddle, and said "I'm looking forward to getting this weekend started here at NJMP. After Ohio I went home and worked on a few things that I have been struggling with, along with going out to track-days and testing with my crew chief (William Morton). The focus this weekend is to fight at the front and try to get my first win or even two! I have to thank the whole Celtic/HVMC crew for working their butts off for me and I plan on repaying them with result. Along with the team and our sponsors, I would like to thank my personal sponsors that have been behind me 110% throughout this year! Jon Block Group Sports, Above Category, Cortech, Shoei, CT Racing, Defy All Odds and Osmo Nutrition."

Corey Alexander had a difficult weekend at Mid-Ohio on his #5 Celtic/HVMC Suzuki GSX-R 600, and knows he needs to put in a strong effort to match his early season results and score valuable points at NJMP. Alexander is optimistic and knows that the energy of the team and fans can often make a difference in the results. Corey thoughtfully stated "I have mixed emotions going into Jersey this weekend. I'm excited to be racing at home in front of the northeast fans and back on the bike after a time off. But I'm also still disappointed in the turn that the season has taken for us. Everyone at Celtic Racing has put in such a big effort just to get this program going, not being able to bring them back a championship is definitely a bummer. With that said, the only thing we can do is go out and try to dominate the weekend in front of the home crowd. Who knows! Crazy things happen in racing so don't count us out completely. Thanks to all my personal sponsors and team sponsors alike!" Corey's personal sponsors include MJRS Freeman, Spidi Leathers, XPD Boots, Arai Helmets, Boxed Water Is Better, Defy All Odds Apparel, Oakley, Crossfit OSA, and Lapizta Watches."

Farris Takes Third & Fifth Place Finishes At Mid Ohio While Teammate Alexander Endures Difficulty

Celtic Hudson Valley Motorcycles Suzuki riders Corey Alexander and Wyatt Farris had very different weekends at the Mid Ohio Sports Car Course. This was the second two day event on the AMA Pro Road Racing schedule, and with the heavy rains and reduced track time, all the teams had very limited practice and tuning. Saturday was basically a wash out, which forced a very busy schedule for Sunday, with both SuperSport events in the afternoon. Since there was no time for an official qualifying session, the first race grid was determined by the points standings, which put Alexander on pole, with Farris starting from fourth. In the Sunday morning warm up session, Alexander was second fastest, with Farris in fifth position for what was essentially the only practice session before the races that afternoon.

In race one, Alexander got a strong start on his #5 Celtic/HVMC Suzuki GSX-R 600 and was making up some time on Gillim and Dominguez who had passed him in the middle of lap one. Unfortunately, Alexander crashed while exiting turn four on lap four, uninjured but putting an end to his race. Farris slipped into sixth at the beginning of the race on his #19 Celtic/HVMC Suzuki GSX-R 600, but with some determination and skill managed to work his way past Blevins and Camacho to take third place by lap seven. Farris continued to do close battle with the two riders near him, and would finish a strong third, his third podium finish of the season.

Race two was later in the afternoon on Sunday, with grid positions for both Alexander and Farris determined by their race one lap times. As they were on the grid waiting for the start, Alexander noticed a problem with his front brakes, and was unable to start the race. Farris got another good start, and was putting in consistently quick laps in fourth position for much of the race chasing the lead pack, until he slipped into fifth when De Keyrel worked his way past on the final lap.

Wyatt Farris was pleased to score some points and visit the podium again at Mid Ohio, stating "I'm happy to get back on the podium with a third, and bring home a fifth for the Celtic/HVMC Suzuki team and our sponsors. Even though they may not be quite the results I'm looking for, or the results we know we can get, any time you're on the podium it's a good day. I'm going to use this seven week break to work on a few things, and head to New Jersey looking to improve our results. A massive thank you to my team, our sponsors and my personal sponsors: Jon Block Group, Cortech, Shoei, Defy All Odds Apparel, Above Category, and CT Racing." You can keep up with Wyatt Farris via Instagram or Twitter @wyattfarris19 or join him on Facebook at www.facebook.com/wyattfarrisracing . Wyatt moves into third position in the points standings, with 144 points, behind Dominguez and Gillim, and just ahead of his teammate Alexander in fourth.

Corey Alexander was very disappointed with how the weekend at Mid Ohio progressed, and said "I guess bad luck comes all at once when it does come. This weekend started off rough just from the weather alone, which cut down the whole weekend to essentially one day. With that said, I felt we had a really good bike and a lot of potential to do really well. Unfortunately the unpredictable track surface caught us out in race one which ultimately caught us out in race two with a brake failure induced by the crash. With such a short schedule it puts a lot of pressure on the whole team to get everything together in a big hurry, and very little time for the riders to get a feel for everything. It's unfortunate for the team, the sponsors, and myself to be plagued with such bad luck especially with such high potential and a strong start to the season. The only thing we can do is move forward and hope to dominate at our home track, New Jersey Motorsports Park in September. Thanks to all of the sponsors and people who made this season possible. It is unfortunate when things don't go as expected as we owe it to all of you to get a good result." Corey's personal sponsors include: MJRS Freeman, Spidi Leathers, XPD Boots, Arai Helmets, Boxed Water Is Better, Defy All Odds Apparel, Oakley, Crossfit OSA, and Lapizta Watches. Please follow Corey Alexander on twitter and Instagram via @corey5alexander , keep track of him on Facebook at www.facebook.com/corey5alexander , and check out his webpage - www.corey23.com - as well. Alexander slips into fourth position in the points, just three points behind his teammate Farris.
