The weather wasn't the only thing that was wild in Virginia when the MotoAmerica series showed up at VIRginia International Raceway. There were flying bikes, controversial officiating calls -- including a front-runner benched despite passing a concussion protocol medical evaluation -- on-track battles and top-level motorcycle road racing at its finest. Read about it all in the June 2019 issue of Roadracing World!

Featured in the June 2019 Issue of Roadracing World:

       Cameron Beaubier and JD Beach took the EBC Brakes Superbike wins on a hot, humid Virginia weekend punctuated by violent thunderstorms and highlighted by a return to MotoAmerica by four-time AMA Superbike Champion Josh Hayes. But after a dramatic Superpole qualifying session and two difficult races in challenging conditions, Toni Elias emerged from the weekend with a 24-point lead in the title chase over Beaubier...

   ...It was a weekend of firsts. Just a week after Beach won the American Flat Track Arizona Super TT—his first win in the AFT premier class—he took his first-ever MotoAmerica Superbike win. P.J. Jacobsen, back in the U.S. after a trying time in the Superbike and Supersport World Championships, scored his first MotoAmerica Supersport win. And a Honda rider won for the first time in MotoAmerica competition, with Cameron Jones declared the winner of the second Liqui Moly Junior Cup race after the leader was hit with a time penalty for gridding in the wrong spot...
