SONOMA, Calif. (May 6, 2012) – With both of his Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha teammates out of action due to injury, Tommy Hayden carried the flag for his team in Sunday’s AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike Race 2 at Infineon Raceway. Tommy rode another solid race on his #8 Yamaha YZF-R6® and finished second, improving on his fifth-place result in yesterday’s Race 1 and making it three podium finishes in five tries in DSB competition.
“I caught a break on a red flag and got off the line better on the re-start,” Tommy said. “My crew made some changes on my R6 overnight, and I was fast in the morning warm-up, so I knew I had a good setup for the race. I’m really happy that I was able to improve on my result from yesterday.”
Based on today’s results, Tommy has moved up another position in the ever-important DSB Championship standings, and he’s now in second place for the season title.
The Y.E.S./Graves/Yamaha team will travel to Tooele, UT, in three weeks for the next AMA Pro Racing round at Miller Motorsports Park on Memorial Day Weekend, May 26-28.
