Roberts sweeps SuperSport class in Birmingham

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (June 23) - Birthday boy Joe Roberts completed the weekend sweep of the SuperSport class during the Triumph SuperBike Weekend on Sunday at Barber Motorsports Park.

Roberts, who celebrated his 16th birthday on Saturday, was strong out of the gate on his California SuperBike School/ Racing Honda and pulled away to finish almost four seconds ahead of second-place Hayden Gillim.

"I thought I might be able to run top five," Roberts said of his weekend expectations. "To come out to be P1 every session and win both races was definitely my birthday wish come true."

Despite building a big lead, the race was still challenging for Roberts.

"I got an OK start, much better than yesterday," Roberts said. "By the time I got to second, Hayden had built a little bit of a gap, so I had to work him down. I got around him around the outside."

The race for second was a tight one as Gillim's Team 95 Yamaha edged out Tomas Puerta and his RoadRace Factory Yamaha by .004-second.

"It was a really crazy race," Gillim said. "I was able to lead a couple of laps thanks to the good start I had. We made a couple of adjustments to the bike to make it a little quicker through the chicane, which paid off.

"I thought I might have a little something for Joe, but I made a little mistake and he went right by me around the outside in the carousel."

Roberts was able to create his gap as the laps ticked away, which set up the duel for second between Gillim and Puerta.

"I knew Tomas was right behind me the whole time," Gillim said. "I was hoping my tires would stay good and I'd be able to make it to the end of the race with Tomas behind me."

Puerta thought he had enough of an opening around Gillim at the end, but like at both Daytona and Road America, Puerta was nipped in a photo finish.

"It was a tough race. We kept up a faster pace than yesterday," Puerta said. "I was behind Hayden the whole race and trying to fix the small mistakes I made the last couple of laps. I thought I got around him for second, but once again somebody beat me at the line."

Up next for the riders in the SuperSport class is the July 12-14 Buckeye SuperBike Weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
