Over the last several years, Suzuki has been utilizing the state of the art technology derived from MotoGP racing in the development of new motorcycles. The benefits now expand well beyond engine and chassis refinements to the development of a new high-performance motorcycle oil line: ECSTAR Suzuki Genuine Oil.



Hayden Gillim grabbed pole position during MotoAmerica Steel Commander Stock 1000 Qualifying Two (Q2) Saturday morning at Circuit of The Americas, in Austin, Texas. On board his Disrupt Racing Suzuki GSX-R1000R, Gillim covered the 3.4-mile course in 2:12.061 to top the field of 37 riders.

Travis Wyman had been the fastest rider in the extreme heat of Friday afternoon, but he ended up second best with a 2:12.311 in the slightly cooler conditions of Saturday morning.

Diego Perez claimed the third and final spot on the front row with a time of 2:12.882 on his PDR Motorsports Kawasaki ZX-10R.

Ezra Beaubier, the current Championship point leader, will start from eighth on the grid on his Orange Cat Racing BMW M 1000 RR.
