[COVERAGE] MotoAmerica New Jersey Round 9

September 14th, 2018 by Elusive Media

MotoAmerica continues at New Jersey Motorsports Park with many championships ready to be clinched, but with heavy rain and winds, mother nature wasn’t going to make it easy! This weekend reminded me of my first time attending MotoGP back in 2008 at Indianapolis, a Tropical storm race day. In this occasion, this was my first time attending MotoAmerica and both days mother nature was relentless in not giving us a dry race, But this did not stop everyone from viewing some top class racing. It’s still amazing me every time witness see a wet race and how fast these rides can go lap after lap on the edge. The next time you see a bad forecast for a race weekend at MotoAmerica, don’t worry, racing will continue and you will be in awe!

Congrats to Cameron Beaubier (Monster Energy/Yamalube/Yamaha Factory Racing) for taking this years 2018 Motul Superbike Championship (His third time), Alex Dumas (Monster Energy/Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha) to clinching his Liqui Moly Junior Cup Championship and Andrew Lee (KTM Orange Brigade/JP43 Training) for securing his Stock 1000 Championship!

A special shout-out to Roger Hayden! He’s retiring after the next round in MotoAmerica and 20 years of racing motorcycles competitively. It was fantastic to see him race over the years along with seeing him racing in some wildcards in the past; MotoGP and Moto2. This also marks an end of an era for the 3 Hayden brothers. I will miss cheering them on from either the TV or attending a race!
