After the 2011 Shift Street Sales Meeting last week, AMA Daytona Sportbike rider Josh Herrin took some blistering laps around Thunder Hill Raceway Park in California.

Using a Go Pro camera, Herrin was filmed ripping around the track on his Team Graves Yamaha R6. Riding along with him are sales reps from Shift Racing.

Herrin currently trails reigning AMA Daytona Sportbike Champion Danny Eslick by 11 points. Herrin has taken five wins and is only one single point ahead of seven-time race winner M4 Monster Energy Suzuki rider Martin Cardenas.

But with a total of 63 points available this weekend at the AMA Pro Road Racing season finale at the 2.38 14-turn Barber Motorsports Park natural road course in Birmingham, Ala. the matter is far from settled.
