At 16, Ben Spies turned pro motorcycle racer. Spies, or "Elbowz," continued to impress, taking the AMA Superbike Championship in 2006.
He then defended the AMA SBK title for the following two years, not allowing Mat Mladin to regain the thrown.
Suzuki started racing in Japan at several of the big hill climb events in the 1950s. The Asama race in particular is where the Suzuki team had some good showings. The machines were half motorcycle and half bicycle, but showed even then the famous Suzuki brand of innovation. The double sprocket gear system of the early "power free" models, in particular, was quite special for that era.
Peter Doyle, after working with Mat Mladin on his championship run, is now Blake Young’s Suzuki GSX-R1000 crew chief. Pete will bring a wealth of experience to Blake’s effort and this is a big plus for the Wisconsin racer. Blake Young, had a great rookie Superbike season and is poised to challenge Tommy Hayden and others for the 2010 AMA Superbike title, now that 7-time champion Mat Mladin has retired.
Blake Young Speaks…
Mat Mladin celebrated his AMA Superbike swan song with a podium appearance at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, New Jersey, on Sunday afternoon. Seven-time AMA Superbike Champion Mladin announced his retirement from AMA Superbike racing earlier this season and this weekend’s double-header event marked the end of the newly crowned 2009 AMA Superbike Champion’s career. In Saturday’s race, Mladin was in a battle for the lead when he crashed out of the race.
Foremost Insurance Pegram Ducati’s Larry Pegram earned fifth in the first of two AMA Pro Amercian Superbike races this weekend at New Jersey Motorsports Park. The Ducati 1098R-mounted rider once again charged forward from a second row starting position. Pegram, who ran as high as third in the race, showed impressive speed before losing grip late, then having issues with lapped traffic in the final two laps.

AMA Superbike Points Standings
Mat Mladin won his seventh AMA Superbike Championship with two races remaining in the series at Virginia International Raceway (VIR) in Alton, Virginia, on Sunday afternoon. Mladin finished second in Saturday’s race and then clinched the title when he finished ninth in Sunday’s race at the double-header Superbike weekend. Mladin’s career with Suzuki has spanned 13 racing seasons and in that time the Australian’s record-setting ways have been remarkable.
