Hacking takes back what he thinks is his

Jamie Hacking rode to his second podium finish of the weekend and took back the points lead during the second AMA Pro Daytona SportBike race of the weekend at Barber Motorsports Park. Consistent finishes all weekend helped Hacking build a three-point advantage in the points standings. Teammate Roger Hayden pulled in early in the race, finishing 37th. The AMA Pro SuperSport class raced on a wet track with Leandro Mercado finishing just off the podium in fourth.

After an incredible finish during Saturday’s AMA Pro Daytona SportBike race, Hacking was determined to improve on his third place finish. Right away Hacking jumped into the lead and looked to pull a gap. With pressure coming up behind and his rain tires giving way as the track continued to dry, Hacking played it smart and brought his Kawasaki Ninja® ZX-6R home in second.

Jamie Hacking Speaks…

"I’m obviously looking for the win, but I didn’t want to push it too hard and lose valuable points if I crashed," said Hacking. "We moved forward a lot in the championship this weekend and that is our main goal. (Martin) Cardenas rode a great race and I know we were running a pace out there that no one could match."

"Its great to leave here with the points lead," said Hacking. "That is

our main goal and I think it’s important to remember every last point,

especially when things come down to the wire at the end of the season."

Hacking’s speed kept him in front for most of the race and also helped him score another point in the championship standings. In a title chase this close, one point can go a long way.
