JD takes another podium in Pittsburgh Race 2
JD Beach recorded his 13th podium result of the season, with another third-place finish in Sunday’s MotoAmerica Supersport Race 2 at Pittsburgh International Race Complex to match his third place from Saturday, which put both Monster Energy/Yamalube/Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha riders on the podium twice at Pittsburgh.
JD commented, “After we switched to using a different rear tire earlier this season (per Dunlop mandate for the entire Supersport class), it’s been more difficult for me on the bike, and we’ve been struggling with the change. It seemed like the harder I tried, the more difficult it would become. So, after yesterday’s race, we worked with Chris, our suspension engineer, to see where we can improve. We found something that gave me better pace in this race, and hopefully, it will help us get better results in the last two rounds of the season.”
