ROUND 13- ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI WINS 40TH CONSECUTIVE AMA SUPERBIKE RACE WITH MLADIN AT HELM

Rockstar Makita Suzuki's Spies brings home 2nd & Hayden 5th

 

Round 13 – AMA Superbike Series
Lexington, Ohio
Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course
August 1 - 3, 2008
 
Rockstar Makita Suzuki Factory Racing celebrated its 40th AMA Superbike win in a row at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, on Saturday afternoon as six-time AMA Superbike Champion Mat Mladin took the win. Mladin overcame a get-off and three red flags to take this victory, which marks the Australian’s 69th career AMA Superbike victory and his sixth such win of the season. Defending and two-time AMA Superbike Champion Ben Spies was recovering from a recent appendectomy but still started from pole position and followed his teammate Mladin home in second place. Rockstar Makita Suzuki teammate Tommy Hayden, meanwhile, brought home an impressive fifth-place result. The Mid-Ohio race was originally slated to be a 26-lap event, but the multiple red flags resulted in the race being abbreviated to 19 laps.
