**Team Suzuki Press Office - December 15. **

Roger Lee Hayden will represent the Army National Guard and its 358,000 Soldiers aboard the MJM GSX-R1000 Suzuki in the 2012 AMA Pro Racing National Guard Superbike Championship.

"I'm really excited to be returning to Michael Jordan Motorsports and representing the Army National Guard again," said Hayden. "The team and I really came on strong near the end of the season and I hope that we can keep that momentum going into next year. I feel like I have one of the best crews in the paddock so it's great to keep the same unit together. I am especially honoured to represent the men and women of the National Guard this year as they celebrate 375 years of service to our country."

"Roger gave us a first-class effort in 2011 and proved that he deserves the opportunity to ride a Superbike," said Kreig Robinson, MJM Vice President of Corporate Relations. "His 'ready to work' attitude towards development made him an easy choice to return to ride for us and to represent the National Guard in 2012. We always set our sights on championship contention, and we're confident in Roger Lee's commitment to excellence."

Last season, Hayden finished in sixth place in the AMA American Superbike Championship series rider points standings and earned two podium finishes.
