JD Beach Ready to Switch Gears Back to Superbike This Weekend at in Virginia
Fresh off of his historic American Flat Track Grand National win in Arizona, JD Beach is ready to jump back on his Attack Performance Estenson Racing Yamaha YZF-R1 Superbike this weekend at VIRginia International Raceway, May 4-5.
Now that JD has added an AFT Twins win to his resume, a career first for him and a landmark win for the Yamaha brand (its first twin-cylinder flat track victory since 1981), the goal for Beach is to get his first career win in MotoAmerica’s premier Superbike class.
JD has had a solid start to the season so far with a podium finish in his debut MotoAmerica Superbike race, as well as a pair of top-five finishes. Although there’s still a lot to learn going into the third round of the championship, he looks forward to the challenge. It’s also a track he likes, having taken home the double victory last season in the 600 class on his way to winning the 2018 MotoAmerica Supersport title.
JD Beach — MotoAmerica Superbike #95:
“I’m really looking forward to getting back on the Attack Performance Estenson Racing Superbike this weekend at VIR. It’s a track that I’ve liked in the past. I think it’s going to be interesting to ride the Superbike there, and with it being the new two-day weekend format, I think there’s going to be a lot for us to all learn. I’m really hoping that from doing all these flat track races, which are just one day and packed all together, it will help me some. I can’t wait to go racing.”
