Blake Davis won the twice-red-flagged and shortened MotoAmerica REV’IT! Twins Cup Race Two Sunday at New Jersey Motorsports Park, in Millville, New Jersey.
Defending Champion Davis, riding his N2 Racing/BobbleHeadMoto Yamaha YZF-R7, and Gus Rodio, riding his Rodio Racing – Powered by Robem Engineering Aprilia RS 660, came into the race with one point separating them atop the Championship point standings. This made Race Two a winner-take-all situation between the two for the title.
After one red flag, the race was restarted on a wet-but-drying track with rain still threatening, and Davis and Rodio began battling each other for first place.
At the end of lap three, Davis was leading Rodio out of the final corner when Rodio highsided. Rodio and his motorcycle then went sliding down the front straightaway, causing a red flag to be thrown and the race to be called complete.
Davis was scored the race winner, which allowed him to win his second straight MotoAmerica Twins Cup Championship. Italian Filippo Rovelli, riding as a wild card entrant on The WagBar MP13 Racing Yamaha, was the runner-up, and Dominic Doyle placed third on his Team Iso Yamaha YZF-R7.
Rodio walked away from his crash.
On the restart, Jackson Blackmon suffered a mechanical issue when he tried to shift to second gear and suddenly lost drive. He put his hand in the air, but he was struck from behind by another rider, suffered a right leg injury, and was transported to a local hospital.
Update: Blackmon returned to the track Sunday evening and reported to Roadracingworld.com that he suffered ligament damage to his right knee but did not break any bones.
