JD makes it a double at Sonoma Raceway
JD Beach once again pulled out all the stops at Sonoma Raceway on Sunday to maintain the lead in Supersport Race 2 from start to finish. He powered his Monster Energy/Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha R6 to the front right off the start and he never looked back as he held off a hard-charging Valentin Debise for 19 laps of high-speed racing.
JD’s double victory at Sonoma gives the points leader a six-race winning streak after 11 races completed this season.
JD Beach – #95 YZF-R6
“That was a hard race, almost every lap I came around and saw ‘plus zero’ on the board. I could hear both of them [Valentin Debise and Hayden Gillim] right on me. We started getting a bit of a gap to Hayden but Valentin was right there. My R6 was working great, we definitely did our homework last night and I feel like my pace was good, especially considering this was one of my worst tracks last year.”
