AMA Pro Racing: Daytona -- American Superbike Race 2 Results

 

Josh Hayes led 14 laps of today's American Superbike race at Daytona International Speedway, unfortunately, the race was 15 laps long. Yoshimura Suzuki's Blake Young, however,  got the measure of the Graves Yamaha rider at the stripe much as he did the previous day.  Hayes led from the start with Young, Tommy Hayden and Martin Cardenas in hot pursuit. Those last three diced for P2-4 through much of the race until Lap 13 when Cardenas dropped  1.5 seconds behind Hayden in 3rd. Coming into the ultimate lap it was Hayes, Young and Hayden separated by a quarter second. Young used the draft off NASCAR 4 to get by Hayes for the win, his second of the new season.

2 Really good races to watch, both went right down to the line. And then the Daytona 200 ending 15 lap sprint was the most exciting race I ever seen at Daytona, you really had to see it. DeSalvo crossed the finish line 6th to start the last lap......and then won! :)

Martin Cardenas is wasting no time getting up to speed! If he can keep this up, how long before he is fighting for podiums or even a possible win? Second superbike race and placing fourth, that is impressive.
