Elkhart Lake, WI May 31, 2013 – This season’s Daytona 200 Rolex and race winner Cameron Beaubier put his #6 Yamaha Extended Service/Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha YZF-R6 on the provisional pole today in AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike qualifying at Road America. Including Cameron, four of the top five provisional-qualifying riders were Yamaha-mounted.

After the session, Cameron said, “I’m happy with my lap time, but I’m hoping I can improve on it tomorrow. It was sprinkling a little bit out there, but not enough to worry about too much. There are a couple of places on the track with heavy braking into the corners, and I think the wind was a factor because it affected my times on a couple of laps when I didn’t hit my markers the way I like. But, overall, I feel good about the session and about earning the provisional pole.”

Cameron’s Y.E.S./Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha teammate Garrett Gerloff qualified his #8 R6 in seventh place and is provisionally on row 2 going into final qualifying.

That final qualifying session for Daytona SportBike is scheduled for tomorrow at 8:50 AM CST, and DSB Race 1 will go green later tomorrow at 1:00 PM CST.
