Road America
Elkhart Lake, WI

Elkhart Lake, WI - Jason Farrell continued his record-setting pace as he took home a win in the AMA-sanctioned ASRA SuperStock race at Road America. Farrell, riding his Kawasaki ZX-10R, lowered the old SuperStock record by 0.179 second to 2:16.231 on his first flying lap. Just for good measure, Farrell bested Jeff Wood's old record of 2:16.410 on laps two, three, four and five, even equaling his new record again on lap five. Farrell finished 38.262 seconds ahead of runner-up Dave Ebben, also on a Kawasaki ZX-10R. Bermuda's Paul DeCouto finished third and opened a 26-point lead in the 2013 SuperStock Championship over Pennsylvania's Tim Bemisderfer at the halfway point of the season.

In ASRA SportBike Dan Ortega, on his Yamaha YZF-R6, put his track knowledge to use securing the lead by the completion of the first lap and never looking back. Ortega took the win over Carl Soltiz by 7.143 seconds with James Milroy finishing in third position. The win puts Illinois resident Ortega into third position in the championship, 40-points behind SportBike point leader Mark Miller, Jr. from Maryland.

Multi-time ASRA Champion Ray Hofman took another win in the 2013 ASRA ThunderBike series, besting Douglas Fogg by just over 15 seconds after the 24-mile sprint. Hofman's win extended his point lead to 45 over Fogg and 55 over Darrell Emerson with four races left in the championship chase.

In Amateur action, it was Iowa's Craig Davis taking the win in Amateur SuperStock aboard his Buell 1125R and Virginia's Darron Fuller who earned the win in Amateur SportBike on his Ducati 848.

Next up for the AMA-Sanctioned ASRA Sprint Series is New Jersey Motorsports Park on July 20-21 where the series joins up with the USGPRU and CCS Series for two days of two wheel excitement.
