JD takes double win in Utah race weekend
In an exciting Supersport Race 2, JD Beach clinched his seventh victory of the season to give his Monster Energy/Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha Team a 1-1 sweep at Utah Motorsports Campus.
It didn’t come easy for JD, who continuously battled closely with Valentin Debise before setting a faster pace late in the race. With four laps to go, Beach launched himself into the lead and maintained a small gap through the finish to edge out Debise by half a second for the win.
The victory also earned JD an 82-point lead in the championship standings.

“Today was another amazing race and a hard-fought battle with [Valentin] Debise. Between him and [Hayden] Gillim, they have been making me push my limits this year. My whole crew gave me an awesome bike today and made my job a lot easier. I love this track in Utah but I can’t wait until Sonoma!”
