Cypress, Calif. (July 13, 2014) – Sunday’s AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca saw a total of seven Yamaha YZF-R6 riders finish in the top ten. MotoSport.com/Meen Yamaha rider Jake Lewis notched his first win of the season in a hard-fought race with Yamaha Extended Service/Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha rider JD Beach.
JD’s teammate Garrett Gerloff was also in a close battle of his own with Yamalube/Westby Racing’s Dane Westby as the two R6 pilots swapped positions a couple of times during the 20-lap race. In the end, Dane took over fifth position on the track, and Garrett Gerloff--coming off a still-healing wrist injury at Barber Motorsports Park just a couple of weeks ago--finished a respectable sixth.
“My Y.E.S./Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha R6 was fantastic today.” JD said. “The crew has been working really hard, and I’m so glad we’re going to Mid-Ohio next week because I’m close to winning, and I just want to get back on my R6 and make that happen as soon as possible!”
As JD said, the next round of the AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike season will take place this coming weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, OH.
