MotoAmerica: Final Round Of Releases From PittRace

MotoAmerica: Final Round Of Releases From PittRace

© 2020, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc. From a press release issued By Quarterley Racing On Track Development:

After his podium dry spell in Atlanta, Gloddy digs deep to fight his way back in race one at Pittsburgh in the MotoAmerica Junior Cup Series

Race One of the MotoAmerica Liqui Moly Junior Cup class started off with plenty of action immediately following the start resulting in Ben Gloddy of Quarterley Racing On Track Development being thrown from his motorcycle by another rider’s bike. After the red flag, the Quarterley Racing On Track Development Team only had 5 minutes to repair the bike so Gloddy could grid up for restart. After the restart there was an intense multi-bike battle for third place. As they approached the straightaway for the final time in race one, Gloddy was able to dig deep and to pull off miraculous third place finish by .013 second at the line.

The MotoAmerica Junior Cup Class continues to impress with bar banging action and extremely close racing at the finish line. Gloddy closed out round four at Pittsburgh International Race Complex in fourth place for the championship season points.

Ben Gloddy:

“First, I want to say thank you to everyone that checked in on me after the crash in race one, it really meant a lot to me” Gloddy stated. “Other than being sore and bruised, I do not have any serious injuries. I can’t thank Quarterley Racing enough for all of their hard work, the fact that they were able to get my bike race ready in less than 5 minutes really shows just how committed they are to making sure I can do my best each weekend.”

In race two, Gloddy was able to get a decent start and was fourth going into turn two. The battle for fourth heated up quickly with the riders swapping positions multiple times. With about two and a half laps to go there was a reg flag incident that ended the race early. When the red flag came out, Gloddy was in fourth place, but the final results go back to the last time the riders crossed the finish line, resulting in a fifth place finish for Gloddy in race two.

“I was disappointed in my results for race two, but will be back for round five at The Ridge. I stayed at Pitt for the Penguin Racing School track day on Monday and my team and I were able to find some more adjustments in my setup that I think will really help me going forward.”

Following a double win at Road Atlanta, Corey and the RideHVMC Racing team supported by Hudson Valley Motorcycles were able to secure two more Stock 1000cc podium finishes at Pittsburgh International Race Complex this past weekend.

Corey started the weekend showing great potential after leading Friday’s qualifying practice session one. After testing a variety of gearing changes Corey struggled to up his pace in qualifying practice session two. Ultimately he would find himself starting from the third grid position for both Superstock 1000cc races just 0.3 tenths of a second behind pole position.

At the beginning of race one Corey was shuffled down into sixth position after suffering a lackluster start. Grappling to get the power of his Graves Motorsports built ZX-10R to the ground, Corey clawed his way back to third place but was unable to contend with the other two podium finishers.

Sunday’s Stock 1000cc race began with a great launch from the starting line. After spending the first half of the race in a battle for third position with JP43 Training teammate Alex Dumas, a marginal gap had opened up to the two leaders. With three laps to go the #23 machine quickly closed the difference securing a new class lap record of 1:42.911 along the way.

Corey made his way passed the leader approaching the white flag but a costly mistake entering the last turn would sacrifice his chances of victory. The result of arguably one of the most exciting races of the weekend saw Corey finish in second position just 0.196 shy of a win.

Even after securing two podium finishes, Corey and the RideHVMC team unfortunatley now trail in the championship battle by 3 points. 6 races remain on the Stock 1000cc calendar.

When asked about the weekend Corey added “I really felt like we had a lot of momentum coming into Pittsburgh but we struggled a little bit to find the speed we needed to battle for wins until Sunday’s race. I definitely can take a bit of the blame for that as I just didn’t feel 100% comfortable throughout the weekend and was slower to get up to the pace needed. My team worked very hard to improve our setup over the course of the weekend and I appreciate all of their effort. Onward!”

RideHVMC Racing treks cross country to Washington State in two weeks time for round five of the MotoAmerica Honos Superbike and Stock 1000 championships. You can stay up to date with Corey and the team on social media via: @corey23alexander or @ridehvmc. If you’re interested in partnering with the RideHVMC Racing team please email [email protected] for more information.
