Huntley Nash took his first AMA Pro Road Racing victory today in the final AMA Pro SuperSport race of the Suzuki SuperBike Doubleheader Weekend at Elkhart Lake’s Road America.

Nash, riding his LTD Racing Yamaha, took a hard fought win in the second SuperSport race of the weekend, finishing 0.200 of a second over Saturday’s race one winner, J.D. Beach on his Rockwall Yamaha.

Nash led six of 10 laps on his way to his first professional victory in the ultra competitive AMA Pro SuperSport Young Gun class.

Rebounding from his last lap crash in yesterday’s race, Nash battled with Beach and his LTD Yamaha teammate Tomas Puerta for the entire 10 lap race.

Puerta led one lap officially but due to the nature of the scenic 4.05-mile Road America course, all of the frontrunners held the lead at one point or another.

Puerta took a well deserved third as he and Nash tried to slipstream together in an effort to pull out some margin of distance from the rest of the SuperSport field.

Beach and his pole-position starting Rockwall Yamaha teammate Cameron Beaubier looked set to take the fight to the LTD Yamaha duo but Beaubier dropped back at the start and although at times he was right in the thick of things, he fell back to sixth at the flag.

Another group of riders that put on a great show behind the lead group were Miles Thornton riding his Yamaha, local Top Gun entry David Gaviria on his Kawasaki and James Rispoli who finished fifth on the track but was later penalized due to a technical infraction found during post race inspection and had to forfeit his prize money.

Thorton, Rispoli, Beaubier and Gaviria swapped positions throughout the race and at many points around the track.

In the early stages of the race, Infineon SuperSport race winner Elena Myers also mixed up with this group on her Lucas Oil Roadracingworld.com RMR Suzuki but her day came to an unfortunate end at the difficult Canada Corner.

The first three riders broke away with Beach and Nash exchanging the lead again and again. Nash made his final move as he dove past Beach into the lead at Canada Corner on the last lap and held him off through the last two turns and up the long hill to the finish line.

Nash has had a number of podium finishes this year and has been showing excellent speed and poise as he makes his run at the SuperSport Young Gun title. This was a well deserved and popular win for him.

Beach extends his East Division points lead to 139. Beaubier and Puerta are next up with 117 points and Nash is just one point back with 116.
