victories and accolades. "We are running in all three of the MOTO-ST
classes," explains Czaia, who has been racing for the past twenty-five
years. "I have competed in a lot of different racing arenas and, to
date, the SunTrust MOTO-ST is the best series around. In short, it is
team racing at its finest. It is both professional and exciting and
everyone on our team is extremely pleased to be on board."

and her travels with her brother to his races, didn't leave her enough
time to devote to the sport.

or the "Blond on Wheels" as she is sometimes referred to, became
interested in racing motorcycles. And from her very first race, her
talent was obvious. "I love team racing," she smiles, "It is definitely
fun and when you win it is really special. I took the CCS Ultra
Lightweight Superbike title at Homestead in 2004 and am looking forward to my
teammate and I taking this win on April 14."

the GST team composed of Czaia, John Linder and Chris Boy. "Racing is
my form of relaxation," explains Czaia. "It gives me some great time
away from all the pressures of business. The other great thing about
