2014 Mid-Ohio AMA Pro SuperSport Results

One man dominated the AMA Pro SuperSport races Sunday at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course – Houston Superbikes Yamaha’s Dustin Dominguez.

The Oklahoma native won both races, and now has a a chance of earning the SuperSport title at the New Jersey Motorsports Park season finale in September. Heading into NJMP, Dominguez trails the current points leader Hayden Gillim by three points.

Following are race recaps from Mid-Ohio AMA Pro SuperSport.

AMA Pro SuperSport Race 1 Recap

Houston Superbikes’ Dustin Dominguez won the first AMA Pro SuperSport race at Mid-Ohio. Dominguez ran away from early leader Hayden Gillim of TOBC Racing to take a 3.260-second victory.

“We’re not really worried about points. We’re here to win races and if we do, we’ll win the championship,” said Dominguez, who took second place in the points after the win. “That’s our plan. The race went pretty perfect for me.”

Gillim wasn’t able to win, but assumed the points lead with his strong second place.

Corey Alexander crashed out of third place midway through the 11-lapper on his HVMC Celtic Racing entry. Alexander, who went down in the Keyhole turn, was tied for the lead in the points before the race.

The battle for third saw Alexander’s teammate Wyatt Farris return to the podium. The Californian edged Excel Racing’s Connor Blevins by less than a tenth of a second. Texan J.C. Camacho (House of Paint Designs) took a fine fifth.

AMA Pro SuperSport Race 2 Recap

Dominguez won the second AMA Pro SuperSport race at Mid-Ohio, too. The Oklahoman topped Gillim again, this time by 3.510 seconds after 11 laps. With the win, Dominguez closed to within two points of championship leader Gillim.

“I give Hayden high marks,” said Dominguez. “He pushed me really hard. I’d give him an ‘A’ for effort. … I liked doing the two races in one day. It’s a lot of riding and I love it.”

Gillim took the lead for good with Alexander’s issues in race one. Alexander’s bike was pushed off the grid just before the start of race two as well.

“It’s the first time I have been in the lead in the championship,” Gillim said. “This time I am going to New Jersey with the lead.”

Blevins earned his first AMA Pro SuperSport podium on Sunday. The 19-year old beat top series pilots Kaleb De Keyrel, Wyatt Farris and Jason Aguilar of Tuned Industries for the final spot on the podium.
