Elkhart Lake, WI (May 31, 2014) – For three-time AMA Pro SuperBike Champion Josh Hayes, his Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha teammate Cameron Beaubier is quickly proving to be his toughest competitor and, in Saturday’s AMA Pro SuperBike race at Road America, class rookie Cameron got the best of his legendary teammate to take his second win on the season. Josh had won the past five SuperBike races in a row at Road America.
After the race, Cameron said, “Josh was riding awesome, and he made it really tough for me to get around him. After getting past him, I made a couple of mistakes, and he was able to re-take the lead. It took all I had to catch back up to him, and I was running out of laps to pass him. I was fortunate to get a good drive on that last lap and get the win.”
Josh commented, “It was a really fun race, and I had a great time riding. It started right off with a battle from the start. When Cameron came by at one point, I was a little wide, and I had to really concentrate to catch back up to him. When Cam made a little mistake, I had a chance to pass him, and I took it. I knew the race wasn’t over, however. He got back by me on the final lap, and that was the race.”
Sunday’s AMA Pro SuperBike race 2 will start at 3:00 PM CST, and with Cameron and Josh in the race, you won’t want to miss it!
