Beach is Back at it With VIR Victory
NEWS August 14, 2010
The opening AMA Pro Road Racing race at the 2.25-mile Virginia International Raceway in Alton, Va., in the opening day of competition for the Suzuki White Lightning AMA Pro Nationals presented by Foremost Insurance, was AMA Pro SuperSport. J.D. Beach took his Rockwall Engineering Yamaha to a dominant win over Joey Pascarella on his DNA Energy Drink Yamaha and Huntley Nash on his LTD Racing Yamaha.
Beach took his sixth win of the season by over 13 seconds and extended his AMA SuperSport Young Gun East Division points lead over his sidelined teammate Cameron Beaubier and today's fourth place finisher, Tomas Puerta, Huntley Nash's LTD Racing Yamaha teammate. While Beach was able to again ride off into the distance, Pascarella had to battle his way through Puerta and then had a long battle with Nash to claim second place.
"My bike is my baby, I take good care of that thing," said Beach. "We got that thing set up real good, it's a great bike, the team's great. All I have to do is get on it, twist the throttle and go."
