ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI'S HAYDEN BACK ON THE PODIUM AT INFINEON SUPERBIKE RACE 1

Rockstar Makita Suzuki's Mladin brings home fifth place

Round 5 – AMA Superbike Series, Race I
Sonoma, California
Infineon Raceway
May 15-17, 2009
 
Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Tommy Hayden picked up his fifth AMA Superbike podium position of the 2009 season in the first race of the double-header weekend at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California, on Saturday afternoon. The Kentucky native started the 22-lap race from the front row, thanks to a strong superpole showing. He ran up front and brought home second place. Rockstar Makita Suzuki teammate Mat Mladin started the weekend strong by taking his fifth (out of a possible five) pole position of the year. In the race, the six-time AMA Superbike Champion got a great start and was out front but struggled a bit and wound up finishing in fifth position.
 
Finally, Rockstar Makita Suzuki rookie Blake Young opted to sit out this race weekend after injuring his hand at the previous round at Barber Motorsports Park. Young hopes to be back racing at the next event at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
