TEAM ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI CELEBRATES AMA SUPERBIKE VICTORIES & PODIUMS AT DAYTONA

Blake Young sweeps both AMA Superbike races & Tommy Hayden double-podiums at season-opening round

Blake Young celebrates the victory on the podium

Team Rockstar Makita Suzuki celebrated a tremendous AMA Superbike opening-round weekend at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida, with Blake Young winning both races and teammate Tommy Hayden joining him on the podium in both events. The Rockstar Makita Suzuki riders raced their Makita tools tuned Suzuki GSX-R1000s flawlessly, with Young celebrating the double victories in style and Hayden bringing home impressive second- and third-place finishes.

 
The weekend’s first AMA Superbike race saw Young in a multi-rider battle for almost all 15 laps on the famed Daytona racecourse. When the dust had settled, however, Young took the win over his teammate by just .026 of a second. In the second race, Young was biding his time until the final lap when he stormed the front-runner and took the lead along with his second victory of the weekend.
 
“Today was great,” enthused Young. “The only thing we could have done better was to lead more laps and get that pole position. Coming out of here with two wins, I’m ecstatic. I haven’t had the best of luck at Daytona. Last year we had a fifth and a seventh, so this year is definitely a positive.  But it’s a long season, and Daytona is just one of the races. We just need to chalk this one up and work hard in the seven weeks we have off. I’m happy for my guys, they worked really, really hard for me in the off-season to get me and my Suzuki on top of the box both days.”
 
Meanwhile, Rockstar Makita Suzuki teammate Hayden was right there with his head down for both races. Although Hayden was leading on the last lap of the first race, the checkered flag saw him finish in second place. In the second race, Hayden again was right there with his teammate and battled competitors as well as the famous Daytona draft before settling into third position.
 
“Today’s race was about what I expected,” said Hayden. “Blake and Josh (Hayes) were riding really well, so it was a tough race for me and my Suzuki. I was third today, and I thought it was an all right position. I was second yesterday, and Blake won from third yesterday, you know, so I figured I’d try it from that way. But I didn’t get a very good run on the straight. That’s the way this place goes. Yesterday, I got too good of a run, today not good enough.”
 

The 2011 Rockstar Makita Suzuki team’s next event of the 2011 AMA American Superbike Championship series is at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California, on May 13 – 15, 2011.
