“"Today's race was definitely fun and I enjoyed it. It feels awesome to get another win for the whole Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki team. I had a lot of friends and family here to support me so that made it extra special. The bike was working better and I felt comfortable the whole race even in the hot temperatures it has been. Now I'm looking forward to tomorrow and going for another win!”

Breeann Poland – Team Manager Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki
“I’m so happy for Jake to be able to pull off a win here at Barber during the first race of this doubleheader weekend. Jake has a lot of family and friends here this weekend and it is awesome to be able to share the podium with them.”

Cory West – Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki #57
“Today was tough with the heat and we gambled pretty big with the setup and it cost us. We'll try something different for the warm up and hopefully we can improve our position for the race. Big thanks to the crew for soldiering on through this heat!”

Joey Pascarella – Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki #52
“Today’s race was really hot and we decided to go with a different tire then we normally ran all weekend and that was a bad decision. I think tomorrow will be better with some more grip and hopefully we can finish further up”
