Team Kawasaki’s Tommy Hayden rode to his second championship in a row this weekend in the Supersport class. Tommy’s fifth-place result on Sunday was more than strong enough to secure his second consecutive Supersport crown thanks to the 30-point lead he brought into the race.
Roger Hayden won the Supersport race for the second weekend in a row and also won his his first ever Superstock race at Road Atlanta. When commenting on the weekend Roger said, “I got my first pole, my first Superstock win, and won the Supersport race.” “It was definitely the best weekend of my career. It’s nothing to jump up and down about but I’m happy. I won’t kick the dog when I get home tonight, that’s for sure.” Roger finished second overall in Supersport points behind his brother Tommy and fourth overall in Superstock.
Zemke leads DuHamel into the last lap until he crashes.
Jake Zemke came in to the Formula Xtreme finale with a five point lead over his nearest competitor Miguel DuHamel, so he needed a win in the final race to secure the championship. The two were going back and forth for the lead for all 15 laps. Zemke lead into the final lap of the race, but while holding off the charging DuHamel, Zemke crashed and ended his hopes of the championship. Zemke finished second overall in the Formula Xtreme points race.
Congrats to the Hayden brothers and Jake Zemke for killing it this year!
