Reading, PA – June 2, 2014 – Penske Shocks would like to congratulate RoadRace Factory Red Bull and rider Jake Gagne for their success in this weekend’s GoPro Daytona SportBike action at Road America.

The weekend started with Gagne setting the pole with a 2:18:647 and a new Daytona Sportbike track record on Friday. In race one on Saturday, he had a 9 second lead, only to see that erased after the race was stopped due to a red flag with nine laps complete. On the restart, Gagne moved back to the front and was able fend off the challenges to win by 1.318. On Sunday, he got off to another good start and led all 12 laps in the race to earn his third AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike victory.

“It was a perfect weekend in Wisconsin. I’m so pumped for the whole RoadRace Factory Red Bull crew and the guys a Penske Racing Shocks to be able to come out of Road America with the pole and both wins,” stated Gagne. “Every session we hit the track we continue to make improvements and get comfortable with the bike and new suspension, and we’re thrilled with how awesome it is to be working with everyone at Penske. I just can’t wait to get to Barber now!”

The weekend was clearly a clean sweep for RoadRace Factory Red Bull Yamaha equipped with all-Penske suspension. Look for them to repeat the results at the next race at Barber Motorsports Park on June 21-22, 2014.
