The two part AMA Pro SuperSport race for the National Championship in the Young Gun and Top Gun categories was another absolute classic race in this exciting class.

LTD Racing Yamaha rider Huntley Nash delivered his best ride of the season yet in taking his third SuperSport victory over West Division Young Gun champion Joey Pascarella.

Joey actually led late in the race after another one of his heroic rides but Huntley was able to re-pass Joey’s DNA Energy Drink Yamaha with half a lap to go to take a well deserved win, setting him up for tomorrow’s finale.

Poleposition winner and East Division Young Gun champion J.D. Beach had the most disappointing day. After Nash grabbed the lead at the start, J.D. was back by Huntley before the end of lap one but in a blink of an eye, J.D. was down in the Alabama corner, his Rockwall Engineering Yamaha cart wheeling into the gravel trap.

J.D. was up quickly and tried to continue but his Yamaha was too badly damaged to continue. With Moto Style scoring for the two races, his hopes of the National Championship are gone but J.D. will be back going for the win tomorrow and he can look back on his five wins and East Division championship with tremendous pride.

Another on-form rider had a tough day, New Jersey winner James Rispoli ran in second until he had a fall on lap nine, ending his day for his Suzuki team.

Although Huntley’s LTD Racing Yamaha teammate Tomas Puerta was keeping the leaders honest in third, it was down to Huntley and Joey. Joey looked faster at times but every time he got close, Huntley was able to hold him off.

On lap fifteen Joey made his move and he was able to pull out a small gap but Huntley, on his newly painted pink Yamaha, in recognition of his Cancer Awareness campaign in honor of his late Mother, closed the gap and made the race winning pass with less than half a lap to go.

Tyler O’Hara was the highest finishing Top Gun rider, he finished ninth on his GP Bike Parts Radio Medics Yamaha. Austin DeHaven took fourth ahead of Elena Myers on her Lucas Oil Suzuki with Miles Thornton sixth.

Tomorrow’s SuperSport finale will determine the National Champion in both Young Gun and Top Gun classes and as with today’s thrilling race, it will be another can’t miss race.
