Spoiler Alert: 2013 AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike results from Barber Motorsports Park listed below

Cameron Beaubier took win number four of the 2013 season for Yamaha Extended Service/Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha at Barber Motorsports Park in Sunday’s AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike race. The points leader won the race by 6.326 seconds, topping RoadRace Factory/Red Bull’s Jake Gagne and JD Beach at the 2.38-mile circuit.

Beaubier had the pace to impress all weekend and, in both races, he made a charge in the final laps to separate himself from Gagne. Beaubier now leads the points by 28 after five races.

“Today, I was a lot more consistent,” said Beaubier, who also made a tire change to the medium Dunlop tire choice for Sunday. “I knew Jake was fast all weekend. I was looking up at the tower to see who was in second. Halfway through, I tried to put down some 1:27s and was able to get a bit of a gap.”

Gagne crashed in the morning warm-up, injuring both feet, but Jake rallied to turn in a valiant effort to push Beaubier until the final laps when his rival pulled away.

“I got off to a good start behind Cameron,” said Gagne. “About halfway through the race, he took off. I was feeling some pain, so I wanted to manage to gap behind me.”

Beach was third, topping a group of challengers aiming for the final spot on the podium. Garrett Gerloff (Y.E.S/Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha) jumped the start and was penalized five seconds for doing so. That meant his third on the track was actually fourth in the final results.

Dane Westby (GEICO Motorcycle Road Racing) was fifth after a protracted battle with upstart James Rispoli on the National Guard/Celtic Racing Suzuki. Westby nudged away at the end.

Alabama’s Jason DiSalvo (Latus Motors Racing Triumph) ran up front early but faded to eighth by the time he completed the 21st lap.

M4 SportBikeTrackGear.com’s Benny Solis charged up to ninth on his Honda.

Former Daytona 200 winner Joey Pascarella earned a top ten on his Riders Discount Racing Triumph.
