Moore Wins Daytona Superstock Race

Copyright 2002, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc.

Jimmy Moore won the Daytona Superstock race Friday afternoon, finally winning after finishing second two times (1999 and 2000). Moore's Corona EBSCO Suzuki was smoking heavily on the last two laps of the race and third-place Michael Barnes reported afterwards that his bike was coated with Moore's oil.

Moore said his foot was slipping off the footpeg and he slid several times but managed to draft teammate Jordan Szoke to the finish line.

Moore and Szoke were on Dunlops while Barnes was on Pirellis. Barnes reported that he missed a shift in the run from the chicane to the finish line on the last lap.

Larry Pegram, Barnes' Hooters Suzuki teammate, finished fourth ahead of Scott Greenwood, Tommy Hayden on a ZX-6R, Brian Livengood, Brian Parriott, Lee Acree, Vincent Haskovec and Chris Ulrich, who was 31st on the first lap after running off in the chicane.

Rich Conicelli was 12th, followed by John Ashmead, Dave Estok and Craig Connell.
