The hottest rider in AMA Pro Road Racing today might very well be Martin Cardenas, riding for M4 Suzuki and taking two wins in the Daytona SportBike class at the Barber Motorsports Park round of the series.
The quiet Colombian, Cardenas, is showing himself as both fast and smart, making the most of his Suzuki GSX-R600, outfitted with the latest Öhlins TTX rear shock and fork kits, the same that are available to all racers.
In spite of tornado threats and torrential downpours, M4 Suzuki’s Martin Cardenas celebrated an impressive race weekend at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama, over the past few days. The Colombian rider swept his first double-header race weekend by winning both Saturday’s and Sunday’s AMA Daytona SportBike races. This double victory means that Cardenas now has three AMA Daytona SportBike victories under his belt. M4 Suzuki teammate Jason DiSalvo also had a strong showing over the weekend.
