AMA Pro Racing: Road America American Superbikes Day 2 -- Another Nail-biter in Wisconsin

 

Using a strategy that closely mirrored yesterday's race but with a different outcome, Tommy Hayden took today's American Superbike Race 2 at Road America, breaking Graves Yamaha's Josh Hayes streak of victories. Hayes and Hayden jumped out to an lead from the start with National Guard Suzuki's Jake Zemke in third. Hayden shadowed Hayes until midway by about a third of a second, then stepped up the pace at midway to close within .2 seconds at the stripe.

By lap 10 the duo had dipped into the 2:12's. On the next lap Hayden showed Hayes a wheel in the carousel and passed him in the kink. By this time the lead duo was running the fastest times that they had all weekend. Hayden crossed the line in first going into the last  lap but Hayes caught and passed him in the carousel. It was starting to look like deja vu all over again in the land of the cheese and the home of the whey, but Hayden was still glued to Haye's tail and when Hayes drifted into the dirt at the exit of the last corner, Hayden breezed by him up the hill to take the second win of the Owensboro, Kentucky native's career. Zemke circulated around largely on his lonesome for the whole race to take an easy third.
