KURTIS ROBERTS UPDATE


Torrance, Calif., April 22 ? Erion Racing/Parts Unlimited/PJ1 Superbike
racer, Kurtis Roberts, is on the road to recovery following his crash
during Friday (4/5/02) qualifying at the Fontana, California, round of the
AMA Superbike series.


Roberts, aboard his Honda RC51, was among the fastest riders on the track
when he took a spill, slightly injuring his left knee and sustaining a more
severe injury to the soft tissue in his left thigh.


Following initial treatment and tests, Roberts saw Dr. Arthur Ting, who
performed procedures to remove a hematoma from the Honda rider's left
thigh. Last week, Dr. Ting called on the services of Dr. Sandhan, a
specialist in ultra-sound testing and analysis. Dr. Sandhan issued a very
positive report, saying that no further tissue damage was found.


Roberts is resting comfortably in his Turlock, California, home, and is
expected to return to racing within six to eight weeks. "I'm feeling better
every day, and hope to be back for either the Pikes Peak or Road America
rounds", said Roberts.
