Altus Motorsports, who has won both the Stock 1000 Championship and Superbike Cup aboard Suzuki GSX-R1000 motorcycles for the past two consecutive years, are determined to make it three in row as they have signed Brandon Paasch to the team for the 2022 MotoAmerica season. The announcement was made by George Nassaney, owner of Altus Motorsports.
In 2020, it was Cam Petersen. In 2021, it was Jake Lewis. And now, Brandon Paasch will race an Altus Motorsports/FLY Racing WPS Suzuki GSX-R1000R for the threepeat. After a year of racing in British Supersport, Paasch is making his return to the U.S. and to the MotoAmerica Series. The New Jersey-born rider won the MotoAmerica KTM RC Cup in 2016, and in 2020, he finished the season ranked third in MotoAmerica Supersport with podium finishes at almost every round. Last year, he won the Daytona 200 and then spent the season racing in the British Superbike Series.
“It’s going to be an amazing year,” Paasch said. “I am stoked to have this opportunity. It will be great to have a good team and a good group of people around me. Altus has the experience and has proven they can win. For them to believe in me gives me a big confidence boost. We have one goal: win.”
George Nassaney commented, “We enter this season with the intention of winning Stock 1000 and the Superbike Cup again. Cam and Jake were amazing the past two years, and we were proud to be a part of their progression. For this year, we are thrilled to have Brandon on the bike. We’ve watched him for years and seen what he can do. There will be a learning curve moving to the bigger bike, but we are going to get out and do as much testing as we can to be as prepared as possible when the season starts.”
