Yamaha SuperBike Duo Hayes & Beaubier Battle for Cortech AwardCortech Performance Edge Award

The $2,000 Cortech Performance Edge Award will go to the AMA Pro SuperBike rider who records the fastest lap in the most races during the 2014 AMA Pro Road Racing season.

Cortech is the presenting sponsor of AMA Pro Racing’s Live Timing and Scoring for both AMA Pro Road Racing and AMA Pro Flat Track. The industry-leading motorcycle gear company has been extremely gracious in allotting the winner of the prestigious Cortech Performance Edge Award a check for $2,000 following the season’s conclusion at New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP) next month.

With just one round and two races remaining this season, SuperBike rookie Cameron Beaubier leads three-time champion and seasoned veteran Josh Hayes by a single lap. Beaubier has recorded the fastest lap in five SuperBike races this season, including Race 1 at Daytona International Speedway, both contests at Road America, Race 1 at Barber Motorsports Park and Race 1 at Mid-Ohio.

As successful as Beaubier has been, Hayes has gone stride-for-stride with him all season. Hayes has recorded four fastest laps thus far, and if he can oust Beaubier in both races at the Kawasaki Devil’s Showdown, scheduled to take place at NJMP in Millville, N.J., next month, then he will have secured the Cortech Performance Edge Award for the fourth straight year, as he’s won the award every season since its inauguration in 2011.

“Cortech is thrilled to help participate in what will be one of the more thrilling finishes in AMA Pro SuperBike,” said Richard Kimes, CMO of Cortech. “Both Josh and Cameron are world-class athletes that know what it takes to perform on the edge, all of us at Cortech wish them both the best of luck at New Jersey.”

Whoever wins, there’s no denying that Beaubier and Hayes have led a Yamaha attack in 2014 that has gone unrivaled. Tune into FansChoice.tv on Sept. 13-14 to catch all of the action and see who will be crowned the next Cortech Performance Edge Award recipient.
