2012 AMA Superbike Wallpaper
When Round 2 of the 2012 AMA Pro Superbike Championship wrapped up Sunday at Road Atlanta for the Triumph Big Kahuna, the two biggest rivals of the series split the wins.
Following one of the most spectacular efforts in AMA Superbike history, the first race went to Yoshimura Suzuki’s Blake Young.
The big-hearted Young earned every bit of his victory. While battling with Monster Graves Yamaha’s Josh Hayes on lap 14, Young crashed out before the last turn, bringing out a red flag.
Although hurting, Young refused medical attention, and headed to pitlane to restart the race. Young had to start from dead last, but gradually stormed through the field, eventually taking fourth by the end of the first lap.
Young worked his way pass National Guard Suzuki’s Roger Lee Hayden and Monster Graves Yamaha’s Josh Herrin, setting his eyes on the leader, rival Hayes. The two began a battle, and Young beat Hayes to the line by a mere 0.293-seconds. Taking the final podium position was Herrin.
In the second race, not so much drama was present, but the same three riders finished once again podium. But the winner this time around was Hayes.
When the race began, Hayes took the early lead, and by the sixth lap the reigning AMA Superbike Champion posted a 1:24.922 around Road Atlanta, almost a half-second faster than his pole-position time posted on Friday.
Young couldn’t challenge Hayes at this race, though, and Hayes finished 5.214 of a second ahead of Young. Arriving in third 11.627 second later was Herrin.
