MELISSA PARIS DRAWS WILD CARD FOR
WORLD SUPERSPORT AT MILLER MOTORSPORTS PARK


Ready to mix with the best in the world, Melissa Paris is set to make her debut in the FIM Supersport Championship at Miller Motorsports Park, May 29-31.

The first female to ever be invited to compete in the FIM World Superbike Championship, Paris will join an incredible roster of riders from all over the world in this action-packed, highly competitive event.
Introduced as a support class to the World Superbike Championship in 1990, World Supersport became a "world series" in 1997. The full title Supersport World Championship was introduced in 1999 and today it is one of the most popular classes in racing.

"Being invited to compete in this event is an incredible honor," says Paris, who will pilot a Markbilt Yamaha R-6. "This will mark the first time World Supersport has run in America and being part of the festivities is awesome. Miller Motorsports Park is a state-of-the-art racing facility and I think we have an excellent chance of finishing well."

In her first year of professional racing Paris is competing in selected AMA events, the USGPRU 250GP and as many other races as budget permits. Already this season, she has earned accolades for scoring the best finish by a woman in Daytona 200 history, beating over 50 competitors in the first Daytona 200 and she currently sits in second place in the USGPRU 250GP with just two races completed.

"Miller Motorsports Park is my favorite track," continues Paris, who hails from San Diego, Calif. "I absolutely love competing there and it certainly suits my style of riding. I took a win in the USGPRU 250GP at the end of last year and also scored a Podium finish in the 125cc class."
