New Orleans, LA (October 6, 2012) – In his first race after winning his third AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike Championship, Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha rider Josh Hayes continued his winning ways by scoring another decisive race victory, this time in Saturday’s Race One at NOLA Motorsports.
Josh, who was riding in front of a large group of family and friends from his hometown in nearby Gulfport, Mississippi, put pride and power on display as he dominated the 18-lap event aboard his #1 Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha YZF-R1 and took the checkered flag with a lead of more than 10 seconds over the rest of the field. The victory was Josh’s 14th of the season, with one more race to go tomorrow on the 16-turn, 2.75-mile New Orleans road course.
After the win, Josh said, “The first lap, everything went kind of clean, and I hit my marks well, and then I started to get a little gap. I had so many people come out this weekend, and I really wanted to do well for them and all the fans here at NOLA. The Dunlop tires held up well for me on this new surface, and tire wear was really a non-issue, at least for me. Hats off to my crew for giving me a great bike. Fourteen wins so far this season is really a testament to their talents.”
SuperBike Race Two is scheduled to start on Sunday at 3:30 PM Central Time.
