2015 Laguna Seca MotoAmerica Supersport Results | JD Takes 8
Yamaha’s JD Beach

JD Beach has proven his dominance once again aboard the Yamalube/Y.E.S./Graves/Yamaha YZF-R6. The 23-year-old Washington native earned his eighth victory of the 2015 MotoAmerica Supersport series Sunday at Laguna Seca Mazda Raceway, which was also his sixth-straight win.

Early in the race, JD Beach battled with pole man Bobby Fong (Triumph) and Wheels in Motion/Motosport.com./Meer Yamaha’s Josh Herrin, but he quickly took the lead, setting the fastest lap of the race on lap six of 21.

Beach remained consistent at the 2.2-mile circuit containing the famed Corkscrew, eventually finishing the race 5.047 seconds ahead of Herrin, and 6.995 seconds ahead of M4 Suzuki/SportbikeTrackGear.com Suzuki’s David Anthony.

“All these guys are going really fast,” JD said. “For me, I’ve always been pretty good at the starts, and that’s been my plan: to get a good start and build from there. We’ve got a lot of racing yet to go, but I’m still going to go at it with the same plan as always, which is to race hard and race fast all the way to the finish line.”

Rounding out the top five were Beach’s teammate Garrett Gerloff, and RoadRace Factory Yamaha’s Tomas Puerta.

With two rounds remaining, including the next race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix (MotoGP) Aug. 7-9, Beach has 265 points, 49 ahead of Josh Herrin – an AMA SuperBike Champion. Gerloff is in third with 199 points.
