Road America DSB Race 2 Was Another All-Yamaha-R6 Top Five, With Yamaha Extended Service/Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha’s Beaubier In 2nd And Gerloff 5th Elkhart Lake, WI June 2, 2013 – After earning the pole and winning yesterday’s AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike Race 1 at Road America, Cameron Beaubier--rider of the #6 Yamaha Extended Service/Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha YZF-R6--looked to be the odds-on favorite to win today’s DSB Race 2. It was not be, though, as Cameron had an exciting, race-long battle with Jake Gagne--who was also Yamaha R6-mounted--and Jake won the race, while Cameron finished second. The two Yamaha riders took turns at the front throughout the race, which made for a very exciting race for the fans in attendance at Road America, as well as those tuning into CBS Sports Network. Cooler temperatures seemed to affect tire grip, as both riders were battling for traction, in addition to their battle against each other. Yet, despite the adversity, Cameron had a fastest lap of 2:19.367, which was actually quicker than the lap record at Road America. “I had a frustrating race. I almost highsided at one point, and I broke the windscreen on my R6,” Cameron said. “Then, later in the race, I almost ran into the back of Jake (Gagne). It was a little bit of a tough day for me, but I’m leading in the points, so I’m happy about that.” Indeed, Cameron leaves Road America with the points lead in the Daytona SportBike Championship. He currently has a 15-point advantage over Jake Gagne. Currently sitting in 3rd place in DSB season points is Garrett Gerloff, who is Cameron’s teammate and rider of the #8 Y.E.S./Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha R6. Garrett matched his fifth-place finish from yesterday with another fifth in today’s race, and it was another all-Yamaha top five just as it was in yesterday’s Race 1. The Y.E.S./Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha team will be back in action on June 21-23 for Round 3 of the AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike Championship at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, AL.
