As he has done for every American Superbike motorcycle race thus far in 2009, Mladin put the No. 7 Rockstar/Makita/Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000 on the pole, this time with a lap at 2:13.218 (109.391 mph). The six-time American Superbike champion has won eight of the season’s nine races to date and goes in search of his ninth Road America victory in Saturday’s first race of the doubleheader.
The biggest weekend of competition since the season-opening Daytona 200 Week by Honda is set for the monstrous Road America road course this weekend where the AMA Pro Suzuki Superbike Doubleheader will be Round 6 of the 2009 AMA Pro Road Racing series.
Every division within AMA Pro Road Racing will be in action Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Road America, but the undisputed headline events will be dual feature races for AMA Pro National Guard American Superbike presented by Parts Unlimited and AMA Pro Daytona SportBike presented by AMSOIL.
Season win number eight put Mat Mladin (No. 7 Rockstar/Makita Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-1000R) back on top of the podium in AMA Pro National Guard American Superbike presented by Parts Unlimited competition as Martin Cardenas (No. 36 Team M4 Suzuki GSX-600R) completed his second consecutive weekend sweep to earn win number five in AMA Pro Daytona SportBike presented by AMSOIL competition in the final round of this weekend’s Kawasaki Superbike Showdown presented by Supercuts doubleheaders at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California.
In perhaps one of the most anticipated Superpole sessions of the season, Mat Mladin (No. 7 Rockstar/Makita Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-1000R) and Jason DiSalvo (No. 40 Team M4 Suzuki GSX-R600) captured pole positions in their respective classes in advance of the Kawasaki Superbike Showdown, presented by Supercuts at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California.
The second of three 2009 AMA Pro Road Racing events in California will take place this weekend, May 15 – 17, at Infineon Raceway in the Napa Valley where the Kawasaki Superbike Showdown presented by Supercuts will feature five AMA Pro road races and more.
The day’s three races were delayed by two hours and each race was shortened five laps from its scheduled distance as a band of severe storms swept through the area and tornado warnings were issued in the early afternoon.
