JD Beach Scores Emotional Superbike Victory at MotoAmerica Season Finale
Fresh N Lean Progressive Yamaha Racing’s JD Beach scored a dominant victory in Sunday’s final race of the 2023 MotoAmerica Superbike season at the New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, New Jersey. It was a masterclass performance from the full-time American Flat Track racer who answered the call from the team to fill in for the injured Cameron Petersen at the last three rounds of the season.
Riders were met with mixed conditions for today’s Race 2, with some sunshine but standing water still on the track. After the lights went out, JD got another flying start from the third row of the grid into third behind his teammate Gagne. On Lap 4, he made the pass for second and then went to chase down the leader. A couple of laps later, JD closed the gap and was hot on the heels of the competition, taking over the lead shortly after. He then built a comfortable gap up front and remained unchallenged to add a superbike win this year to his two SuperTwins victories with the Estenson Racing team in the American Flat Track series. The win also marked a second-career superbike victory for JD aboard an Attack Yamaha R1.

“Today was a dream come true for me. I was really nervous before the race with the mixed conditions, but once the lights went out, I went to work. The team had the bike working great on this tricky track. I’m over the moon about getting another Superbike win to go with my AFT wins this year. I want to thank Attack and Yamaha for giving me this opportunity to come in and fill in at these last few rounds, and also to the Estenson Racing team for allowing me to do it.
