MILLVILLE, N.J. (Sept. 10) -- GEICO Suzuki rider Chris Ulrich is ready to close out the inaugural MotoAmerica season on a strong note at this weekend's MotoAmerica Championship of New Jersey at New Jersey Motorsports Park.

The nine-event season comes to a close this weekend, and Ulrich wants to continue a late-season surge that has seen him finish in the top five in three of the last four Superbike races.

"We just want to continue to build on that last finish we had at Indy," Ulrich said. "I'm looking forward to finish the season strong."

Ulrich was fifth in the second Superbike race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last month and is seventh in the points standings headed to NJMP. After testing the Suzuki this week, he hopes to keep the momentum rolling.

"We had a test Wednesday," Ulrich said. "We got out on the 'Lightning' course, which is a different one from the 'Thunderbolt' course we'll race on. We got a half-day in, working on electronics and chassis stuff. We learned a few things, which is good so we can move forward."
