JD takes second podium of the weekend at Road Atlanta
In Sunday’s Supersport race, Monster Energy/Yamalube/Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha teammates JD Beach and Garrett Gerloff faced the same challenge from Valentin Debise as they did in Saturday’s race.
It’s clear that JD, Garrett, and Debise will be dicing with each other at the front of the pack throughout the season, and in this second Road Atlanta matchup of the weekend, Debise prevailed, while Gerloff followed up his Saturday race victory with a second-place finish on Sunday, while JD was again third.
“I want to win the races, and make passes,” JD said. “But, this track hasn’t been one of my strong ones. So, all in all, I’m happy with my results this weekend. I’m looking forward to going to some tracks where I feel like I’m better. We learned some stuff about the bike here at Road Atlanta that I think will help us as the season continues.”
