JD takes second at Sonoma Raceway race one
In Saturday’s MotoAmerica Supersport race at Sonoma Raceway, polesitter Garrett Gerloff continued the same dominance that he has displayed all weekend at Sonoma Raceway, as he won ahead of his Monster Energy/Yamalube/Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha teammate JD Beach, who lined up second on the starting grid and also finished second in the race. Garrett’s win widened his lead in the Championship to nine points over JD in second.
JD said, “Garrett’s been on it from the moment we got here this weekend, and we’ve had to play ‘catch-up’ a little bit. But we improved a lot today, and I was able to finish second, plus, we got a lot of good data for tomorrow’s race. I’m looking forward to racing again tomorrow, and my team and I will be ready.”
Supersport Race 2 from Sonoma Raceway will go green on Sunday at 2:25 PM PST.
