Yoshimura Podiums In
Chino, Calif. – March 8, 2010 – Yoshimura R&D
of America had a spectacular week during the
69th annual Daytona Beach Bike Week in Florida.
With races ranging from GNCC ATV to AMA American
SuperBike, there was a Yoshimura-prepped machine
on the podium.
This week saw two GNCC events, and Yoshimura
was on the podium in the GNCC ATV class both
races. Chris Borich, the 2009 GNCC ATV champion,
won the first GNCC ATV Pro race of the season at
River Ranch, Fla., and started his 2010 season
off right. His Yoshimura-prepped QuadRacer R450
was in top condition and took the two-hour race
by storm. In the second of the ATV races this
week at the Maxxis General in Georgia, Borich
battled his way to a second-place finish.
In the AMA American SuperBike class, the
Yoshimura-equipped Rockstar Makita Suzuki racers
took to the track to battle it out at 200 miles
per hour. Tommy Hayden took his GSX-R1000 to two
second-place finishes, missing the win in the
second race by only .009 of a second. His two
podium finishes give him a solid spot in the
points standings as the series heads to Fontana,
The Supercross race was exciting, as the
track sat in the infield of the legendary
Daytona track. Three of the top-five spots in
the Supercross 450 class were held by
Yoshimura-backed racers, including Ryan Dungey
who took second in Daytona and remains 20 points
ahead of the other racers in the points
standings. The Honda Red Bull Racing team’s
three riders finished off the top five, with
Trey Canard getting the third spot on the
podium, and his second podium finish in the
three 450-class races he’s competed in. Davi
Millsaps took fourth with his
Yoshimura-outfitted Honda CRF450.
In the Eastern Regional Lites class, the
Yoshimura-prepped Rockstar Makita Suzuki RM-Z250
took second with Austin Stroupe’s performance.
Stroupe also grabbed the holeshot in the race.
Yoshimura has the right formula to keep all
these machines working at optimum performance.
Expect to see more victories and podium finishes
from Yoshimura-backed racers as racing continues
