JD takes back to back victories in Virginia
JD Beach went two-for-two in the Supersport class, riding his Monster Energy/Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha R6 to back-to-back victories in Virginia this weekend.
JD got off to a great start in Race 2 on Sunday, and immediately put a gap between himself and the rest of the field. The two-time MotoAmerica Supersport Champion rode impeccably to finish 28 seconds ahead of Tuned Racing’s Braeden Ortt, who also placed his Yamaha R6 on the podium with a second-place finish.

“My Monster Energy/Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha Team gave me a great bike today. I think, for me, the race was won in the first five laps or so because I was able to get a little bit of a gap on Hayden. Once I got that gap, he was doing the same so I was really having to push and then he went down on lap 12 or so. It sucks to see that because he’s riding so well and for sure it’s made me a better rider because of it. My mission this year is to win as much as I can and I want to go faster than we did last year at all the tracks. I want a Superbike ride bad and I’m just working toward the future to make that happen.”
