Progressive Fresh N Lean Yamaha rider Jake Gagne, the two-time and defending Champion, will start the MotoAmerica Medallia Superbike races at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta from pole position.

Gagne was fastest in Qualifying One (Q1) on Friday afternoon, and when overnight rain left the 2.5-mile circuit with damp patches during Qualifying Two (Q2) on Saturday morning, Gagne’s lap time of 1:23.453 held up to earn him pole position.

Gagne will share the front row with Tytlers Cycle Racing BMW’s Cameron Beaubier (1:24.381) and Gagne’s teammate Cameron Petersen (1:24.542).

Westby Racing Yamaha’s Mathew Scholtz came close to improving his lap time in Q2 but his 1:24.666 from Q1 was good enough for fourth on the grid. Scholtz will line up next to Beaubier’s teammate PJ Jacobsen (1:24.972) and Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati NYC rider Josh Herrin (1:24.999), who improved his best lap time in Q2.

Lining up on row three of the grid will be Vision Wheel M4 ECSTAR Suzuki teammates Richie Escalante (1:25.512) and Toni Elias (1:25.785) along with Corey Alexander (1:25.900) on a third Tytlers Cycle Racing BMW.
