ROUND14- ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI'S MLADIN & SPIES DOUBLE UP ON MID-OHIO SUPERBIKE PODIUM

Rockstar Makita Suzuki's Hayden gets top-five finish

Round 14 – AMA Superbike Series
Lexington, Ohio
Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course
August 1 - 3, 2008
 
Rockstar Makita Suzuki Factory Racing’s Mat Mladin, Ben Spies and Tommy Hayden replicated their impressive results from Saturday’s AMA Superbike race in Sunday’s final event at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio. Six-time AMA Superbike Champion Mladin won again and in doing so, celebrated his 70th career AMA Superbike victory and his seventh win this year. Defending, two-time AMA Superbike Champion Ben Spies started from pole position and again followed Mladin home in second place, while Rockstar Makita Suzuki teammate Tommy Hayden again brought home fifth. Unlike Saturday’s event, however, Sunday’s was not plagued by red flags. The full 26-lap race saw Spies lead the first lap before being overtaken by Mladin. The two rode flawless races to finish on the podium. Hayden, likewise, rode a consistent race and brought home a strong result.
