Summit Point National Win-
DSPHonda Racing’s young 17-year-old Damian Jigalov continues to impress his quick progress on a 1000cc motorcycle with a race win in A Superstock at Summit Point Raceway in the WERA NATIONAL Race. Jigalov is 2nd in the points Championship going into the final round at Barber Motorsports Park on October 22-24th weekend.
“It feels great to win in a competitive class with fast riders,” said Jigalov. “I was able to get a good start from 2nd row and settle into 4th spot after the first lap. I felt good and was able to be aggressive making passes and settle into P2 on the second lap, closing in on the leader. The Moore Mafia-tuned Honda CBR1000RR SP2 felt great and the Pirelli tires gave me great grip and feel. On lap 3, braking hard into turn 1, I was close to the leader and we both were braking hard and late. The leader had an unfortunate low side crash putting me into the lead. I was able to maintain the lead to the finish unchallenged”.
Jigalov’s goal for next season is to enter the MotoAmerica race series, feeling fast and ready to be competitive in the premier series.
Jigalov would like to thank DSPHonda.com as the title sponsor for making the 2021 season possible, Moore Mafia for tuning the bike and the support, Podium Motorsports/Pirelli for the great tires, Shoei helmets and OneX suits for keeping me safe, along with supporting sponsors, Pop Shadow Decals and Twistys Cycle.
