Video! Superbike/Superstock 1000 Race 1 VIR Highlights

VIRginia International Raceway provided a majestic setting for round three of the MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship. Four-time AMA Superbike Champion Josh Hayes was on pole for both Superbike races, run on Sunday afternoon in gorgeous conditions as bookends to Supersport race two and Superstock 600 race two.

Hayes’ Monster Energy Graves Yamaha teammate, Cameron Beaubier, was gridded second for the double header, with Yoshimura Suzuki’s Roger Hayden completing the front row. RoadRace Factory/Orion Yamaha rider Jake Gagne was the fastest qualifier for the Superstock 1000 class, run in conjunction with Superbike but scored separately.

Hayes started the weekend well down in championship points to Beaubier, but the veteran roared back and left VIR in second overall in the standings. Watch highlights from race two here. Next stop for the series is round four, May 29-31, at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. Tickets for the three-day event are available here.
