Jake Lewis â€“ Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki #85
â€œWhat an awesome weekend for the whole Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki team and I. Race two was definitely exciting but I came up just a little short and finished second. I would have liked to get the double wins but it still was a great feeling on the podium again. It was a good points weekend for me and I now have a healthy points lead in the east. I keep feeling better and better on the bike and I’m looking forward to the rest of the year!â€
Breeann Poland â€“ Team Manager Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki
â€œIâ€™m happy with the teams podium finishes on such a demanding weekend with the incredibly hot temperatures â€“ I have got to give thanks to all of the Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki riders and crew for their efforts this weekend. It is great that Jake now has a lead in the SuperSport East championship that is greater than the points available in a race.â€
Kyle Wyman – #33
â€œIt was a lot of fun up front, dicing and battling back and forth. The last lap set up perfectly. I passed in Museum Corner and then rode as tight a line as I could the rest of the way in. A big thanks to everyone that supports my team – KLR Group, Spyke’s Harley-Davidson, Planet Fitness, Kuryakyn, Vesrah, Arai, Cortech, Sidi, Held, Rider’s Discount, Ohlins USA and Superbike Chassis. Plus my crew — Dad, Uncle Bill (Wyman), Paul Diener and Rick Bretl. I wouldn’t be here without them.”
Cory West â€“ Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki #57
â€œIt was a difficult race and a difficult weekend in general. We’re having a hard time coming up with a solution to my issues but we’ll keep trying to find a fix for it and get back on pace with the pack. Big thanks to the whole crew for working so hard through such a hot weekend and hopefully we’ll be back on point at Mid-Ohio!â€
Joey Pascarella â€“ Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki #52
â€œSundays race was a little better for me as we used the softer tire but once the tire wore out I was having an issue with spinning again. I think once we get some more time on the bike the stronger we will be and I am looking forward on going to Mid-Ohio.â€Maxima News
