JD takes the win in race one at Barber Motorsports Park
Monster Energy/Yamalube/Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha rider JD Beach took the win in race 1 at Barber Motorsports Park on Saturday, whilst teammate Garrett Gerloff clinched the championship with third place.
Right from the race start, JD was in full command at the front, and he rode a flawless race all the way to the checkers.
After his race win, JD said, “It’s never easy to win a race against these guys. When I saw Garrett fly by me, I didn’t think there was any way that he was going to make that corner. But, I still thought he’d be coming up through the pack, so I just kept my focus on running fast laps. (My crewchief) Mike Canfield and (my mechanic) Woo (Dave Presler) solved a couple of issues that we’ve been having, and it really paid off today.”
