JD Beach Switches Gears to Superbike Racing After a Busy Week of Flat Track
Fresh off his thrilling American Flat Track victory at the Buffalo Chip TT in Sturgis, South Dakota, JD Beach is looking to keep that winning momentum rolling over to the pavement this weekend at round seven of the MotoAmerica Superbike Championship at Sonoma Raceway, August 10-11.
It wouldn’t be the first time Beach has scored a win in both premier classes on back-to-back weekends. Earlier this Spring, the dirt track/road racer made history when he followed up his maiden AFT Twins win at the Super TT with his first MotoAmerica Superbike win at VIRginia International Raceway.
Last season, he pulled off the double at the 2.52-mile track nestled in Northern California’s wine country on the way to scoring his second MotoAmerica Supersport title. Beach is eager to get rolling this weekend aboard the Attack Performance Estenson Racing Yamaha YZF-R1 and battle for another top result during the frantic pace of the two-day schedule.
JD Beach — MotoAmerica Superbike #95:
“I’m really looking forward to Sonoma. It’s a track that I did really well at last year. I feel we have a good setting with the bike. Also, I think I’m going to be prepared for the weekend because I’ve already been racing this week. I’m ready for the weekend and looking forward to getting back on the pavement.”
