A new name topped Friday’s Superpole qualifying session for the Honda Super Cycle Weekend presented by Dunlop Tires at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, as Josh Hayes put the No. 4 Yamaha Motor Corp. USA Yamaha R1 on pole position for the weekend’s AMA Pro National Guard American Superbike presented by Parts Unlimited doubleheader. AMA Pro Daytona SportBike presented by AMSOIL qualifying and Superpole sessions were rained out. Starting positions for the twin Daytona SportBike races will be set by tomorrow morning’s final qualifying session.
In an ongoing effort to maintain a competitive balance among all manufacturers competing in the AMA Pro Daytona SportBike presented by AMSOIL division, AMA Pro Road Racing officials dyno tested the 10 motorcycles that qualified for Friday’s Superpole session at Barber Motorsports Park.
"AMA Pro Racing is dedicated to ensuring that we deliver to our fans great competition on the track between a variety of brands," said AMA Pro Racing President Roger Edmondson. "This was an important step in getting the formula where it needs to be to make good on that commitment."
