Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha Rider Hayes Finishes Second In AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike Race 2 At Daytona; Teammate Herrin Is Fourth

Daytona, FL March 17, 2012 With both of its riders finishing in the top 4, the Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha team performed well in AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike Race 2 at Daytona International Speedway.

Josh Hayes, who earned another valuable point in the championship by leading the most laps, was perfectly positioned on the final lap to use the famous Daytona draft for the win, and Josh crossed the finish line in a photo finish. Blake Young held on to win the race by a scant two one-thousandths of a second. Josh, who is the two-time reigning SuperBike Champion, leaves Daytona in the lead of this year's championship.

Number-2 Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha SuperBike rider Josh Herrin ran an exciting and tactical race where he diced back and forth with Roger Lee Hayden. In only his second race aboard the crossplane-crankshaft Yamaha YZF-R1®, Josh finished in a very respectable 4th place.

Commenting on his race, Josh Hayes said, "Wow, that was exciting, but I just mistimed it on that last lap. My crew gave me a great bike today, but that one was on me. It was a great race for the fans, and I can't wait to get to Road Atlanta. It's going to be a great season."

The Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha team's next race is in almost exactly a month when AMA Pro Racing makes its welcome return to Road Atlanta for the Big Kahuna Atlanta.
