Yamaha’s Garrett Gerloff leads teammate JD Beach

Garrett Gerloff followed up his his pole-earning performance of Friday at Circuit of the Americas to win the opening round of the 2016 MotoAmerica Supersport Series, the Texan taking victory in his home race by 1.004 seconds over his teammate JD Beach, the defending MotoAmerica Supersport series champion.

The Y.E.S. Graves pairing were locked together for the entire race, but Beach could never find a way around his teammate.

Third place went to M4 Sportbike Suzuki’s Valentin Debise, the Frenchman impressing in his MotoAmerica debut. Debise barely beat Wheels in Motion/ Motorsports’ Joe Roberts to the line. Team H35’s Benny Solis rounded out the top five on his Honda CBR600RR.

“I’ve been putting a lot of work in during the off-season and I don’t want to be working my butt off for nothing, so I definitely wanted to win,” Gerloff said. “It definitely made it special that it was at my home track and I have the Texas flag on the back of my helmet cause this is where I’m from and grew up. It’s definitely really special.”
