SBK Race Report

Suzuki dominated the opening race of the AMA Pro SuperBike series in Daytona Beach, Fla., as 7 of the top 10 riders in the class raced aboard GSX-R1000s. Suzuki landed in the top two spots with Jordan Suzuki’s Jake Zemke taking top honors, while Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Tommy Hayden took second.

The top five riders, four of whom were on GSX-R1000s, finished the close race within a few tenths of a second. Over the course of the 44-mile race, the rider out front of the pack changed six times and Suzuki led 13 of the 15 total laps.

Racing continues tomorrow in the SuperBike class, and look for the championship-winning Suzuki GSX-R1000 to be at the front of the pack again.
