Why did Vesrah and Benny Solis just part ways?

Just saw the post from Vesrah. Looked like it was rushed out. Anyone know what happened?

Everyone is hush hush (at least last I heard) about what's going on. Rumors were flying after Infineon that they were shutting down operations for a bit.

JOEY PASCARELLA TO FINISH THE 2012 SEASON WITH RIDERS DISCOUNT VESRAH SUZUKI.
by Vesrah Suzuki on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 9:01pm
Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki is pleased to announce that Joey Pascarella will be joining the team beginning with the next round at Miller Motorsports Park. Joey will be competing in the AMA Pro Road Racing Daytona SportBike championship aboard a Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki GSX-R 600 for the remainder of the season.

Brian Gibson – President/CEO | Riders Discount
"It brings me much satisfaction to be retaining the currently 4th in DSB point’s rider Joey Pascarella who has expressed so much excitement to be joining our team. I believe the combination of Joey’s proven abilities and the support offered by the Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki crew will be a solid force for some great results for the rest of the season."

Breeann Poland – Team Manager Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki
“I’m happy to be reunited with Joey who has grown and matured as a rider since the last time he rode for me. Joey has had great results already this season and we are looking forward to continuing with that momentum. I want to thank SGA Racing for releasing Joey and allowing him to ride for us starting at the Big M weekend at Miller Motorsports Park.”

Joey Pascarella – Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki
“First off I am very excited about joining the Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki team for the rest of the season and cannot thank them enough for bringing me on. While it is a new team and bike for me, I am really looking forward to riding the Suzuki GSX-R 600. Also I can’t thank SGA Katra racing enough for helping me out for the past two rounds as it was a great time working with them and I was honored to get them their first AMA Pro Racing Daytona SportBike podium. I am confident going into the Big M weekend and looking for a good result even with having to adapt to the new bike and team.”

I ran into the marketing and owner Riders Discount at Sebkins Saturday Night drinking beer before Sunday's Road America CCS races. Cool guys. I'm sure they want to fill those top four spots.

Mark Junge is building the CRT motor for Suzuki BTW

Last I knew. Vesrah was Nick McFadden, Corey West, Jake Lewis and now Pascarella. Who will fill the spot on Kat's team to take over for open slot though? Stefan. I nominate you.
