Round 7 – AMA Superbike Series
May 16 - 18, 2008
Rockstar Makita Suzuki Factory Racing continues to hold sway in AMA Superbike racing, as defending AMA Superbike Champion Ben Spies and six-time AMA Superbike Champion Mat Mladin again finished first and second in the second AMA Superbike race of the weekend at Infineon Raceway on Sunday afternoon. Two time AMA Superbike Champion Spies started from pole position and led all 28 laps of the race to take the win. This victory is Spies’ fourth consecutive AMA Superbike win of the season and his 22nd such career victory. Teammate Mladin was right on Spies’ tail for the entire race and brought home second place. With this result, Mladin maintains his lead in the AMA Superbike championship points standings. Rockstar Makita Suzuki teammate Tommy Hayden is recovering from injuries sustained at a recent round of AMA Superbike and did not race this weekend.
