Here’s what we have so far. Desmo Veloce, located in Phoenix, AZ, is a newly formed performance shop specializing in Ducati performance. It’s owned and operated by longtime AMA Ducati technician Richard Boyd. Richard signed Garrett Willis to ride a Ducati for the 2013 season but last weekend while testing at Chuckwalla, Willis was injured and Desmo Veloce did not have a rider for the Daytona 200. Lucky for Richard, he worked with the 2006 Daytona 200 winner Jake Zemke last year on the Ducshop team and the call was made. Our sources tell us that Zemke who finished 6th last year and 3rd the year before in the 200 has agreed to fill in for Willis and race the Daytona 200. Jake has set pole in the past and you better believe that he’s going to be a contender.
