AMA Supersport: Mid-Ohio Sunday Final

AMA Supersport News

In a repeat of Saturday’s dominant performance, J.D. Beach and his Rockwall Performance Yamaha teammate Cameron Beaubier once again ran away from the field in today’s AMA Pro SuperSport race at the Honda Super Cycle Weekend Presented by Dunlop Tire at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

This time, Beach had to battle back from fourth place as the field swept into the first turn but once he took the lead on lap four, he was never headed again and swept to a 12.942 second victory over Beaubier and LTD Racing Yamaha rider Huntley Nash.

Nash and Beaubier were the only other riders to lead any laps in the 17 lap race. Nash had a great start and held the point until Beaubier passed him on the second lap. Beaubier only led two laps himself as Beach re-established himself in what was, for the Mid-Ohio weekend, his rightful position at the front. Beach showed real domination in the ultra-close SuperSport field.

The Mid-Ohio SuperSport event was a combined East and West Divisional Young Gun event and with his sixth place finish today, Joey Pascarella clinched the West Division Young Gun Championship with 172 points. Pascarella has won three races on his way to the Divisional title, one win at the season opener at Daytona and two at Auto Club Speedway.

Pascarella and his DNA Energy Drink Yamaha now head to the last West Division race next week in California with the title in hand.

Joey Pascarella says “I love Laguna Seca. Now I can race for the win without worrying about points.”

Beaubier was once again the only rider with anything for Beach but as the race went on he consolidated his position and took another second place, the second one-two finish in a row for the Rockwall Performance team this weekend, their third this year.

Nash and his LTD Racing teammate, Tomas Puerta, battled with yesterday’s third place finisher, Dustin Dominguez and like yesterday, Dominguez showed great speed and racecraft as he battled with the duo.

Unlike yesterday, Nash was able to get by Dominguez for third place and then Puerta moved Dominguez down one more spot to fifth on the last lap. Pascarella took sixth, followed by James Rispoli on his ANT-Racing.com Suzuki and Elena Myers on her Lucas Oil Roadracingworld.com Suzuki who again battled with Rispoli, Travis Wyman on his Yamaha and also Pascarella. Wyman took ninth and Miles Thornton rounded out the top ten on his Yamaha.
