Editorial Note: Kruger won both Formula One races, both A Superstock races, and one A Superbike race during the double-header WERA Sportsman Series event.
5 Races, 5 Wins! The perfect weekend for the Nature Power Kawasaki Superbike Team at Roebling Raceway-AMA/WERA CHAMPIONSHIP
Canadian Dan Kruger won five races this past weekend, May 6-7, at the WERA Championship round held at Roebling Road Raceway, near Savannah, GA.
We came, we conquered, and we left. A couple of close races but Dan had full control over the weekend and a strong race pace as he also took pole position on both days and led all practice sessions.
“I am really pleased how my crew chief and I worked together to set up the race bike, selected the correct compound tires, and did what was needed to sweep the weekend. We had some sketchy weather in one race and thought about pulling off after the warm-up lap but fortunately decided to stay out and race. Looking back, I am pleased with our performance,” Dan commented.
On Saturday, we had a clutch issue and pulled in after the first lap. We also had an engine let go during the Friday practice, so the weekend was not without its challenges. We now have a lot of work ahead of us as we prepare for the doubleheader at Road Atlanta in a few weeks’ time. There will be a lot of points up for grabs and our team will do what we can to take as many of them as possible as we head into this round leading the AMA/WERA National Superbike Championship.
We also start the N2/WERA Endurance Championship that weekend so there will be lots of racing coming up.
