JORDAN SUZUKI & ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI DOUBLE-PODIUM IN MID-OHIO SUPERBIKE RACE

Suzuki's Yates & Mladin bring home 2nd & 3rd on Saturday

Round 8 – AMA Superbike Series, Race 1
Lexington, Ohio
Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course
June 17-19, 2009
Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Mat Mladin picked up another podium finish in Saturday afternoon’s AMA Superbike race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio. The six-time AMA Superbike Champion charged hard through the field on his Rockstar Makita Suzuki GSX-R1000 and brought home a third-place finish. Currently, Mladin still leads the overall championship points in AMA Superbike. Joining Mladin on the podium was Jordan Suzuki’s Aaron Yates. Yates battled for the lead for much of the race before finishing an impressive second place. Meanwhile, Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Tommy Hayden and Blake Young both had a bittersweet race. Hayden got a good start but struggled on the back straight and finished sixth, while Young led the first several laps before finishing up in seventh.

Rockstar Makita Suzuki Factory Racing will race again tomorrow in the second of two Superbike races at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.
