JD on the podium again in Race 1 at NJMP
Fresh N Lean Progressive Yamaha Racing’s JD Beach scored a stellar 2nd place finish in the opening race of the MotoAmerica Superbike season finale at New Jersey Motorsports Park
After qualifying seventh, JD got a great start from the third row of the grid into third. Although he was shuffled to fifth a couple of laps before the halfway point, the dirt track/road racer rode his own race in the tricky conditions, made his way back to third, and ultimately, a runner-up finish. After a long absence from Superbike racing before filling in for the injured Cameron Petersen at the last three rounds, it was another great ride from JD, who scored his second podium finish of the season with the team.

“The race was so mentally intense! When this track is so wet, it makes it super slick. I was just trying to ride my own race and be as smooth as I could. This is only my third superbike weekend this season, and I haven’t had any rain races, so I was hoping for it to be dry, but it was great. I’m really pumped to get on the podium again on the superbike and to do it in the rain – that’s awesome!
