AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike Results from Mid-Ohio

Y.E.S. Monster Energy/Graves Yamaha’s Cameron Beaubier extended his magical season on Sunday at Mid-Ohio, winning his sixth of seven races in the 2013 AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike season.

Beaubier had to work for this one, topping JD Beach by just 0.655. Beach’s RoadRace Factory/Red Bull teammate Jake Gagne finished third in the race shortened to 15 laps after a crash on the fan lap caused a lengthy clean up.

Beaubier had to move through the field and gain positions one at a time, having gotten off the line in fifth place. Although Beaubier was able to take the lead from Beach on lap six, Beach did not concede the win. Beach actually closed on Beaubier late by virtue of the race’s fastest lap on the white-flag lap.

Cameron Beaubier (Y.E.S. Monster Energy/Graves Yamaha YZF-R6 SportBike) says: “At the beginning, I was a little timid going into the left-hander.

“I could hear JD on me the whole race, especially in the last turn. He was there the whole time, and it was tough.” Cameron added that he had tried to pull away, but couldn’t shake Beach.

Beach earned his best-ever Daytona SportBike result in the contest and did a great job of holding Gagne at bay, too.

Gagne had a tough time with National Guard Celtic Racing’s James Rispoli, who ultimately finished fifth. As has been the case in other races this year, Rispoli was very strong in the opening laps but managed to earn his best Daytona SportBike finish yet even though Garrett Gerloff (Yamaha Extended Service/Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha) edged him out of fourth place by 0.2).

Meen Motorsports’ Jake Lewis earned sixth, ahead of GEICO Motorcycle Road Racing’s Dane Westby, Jason DiSalvo (Latus Motors Racing), and Bobby Fong (D&D Cycles/Castrol/Triumph.)

The AMA Daytona SportBike series heads directly to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for a single-race weekend during the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix.
