Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha: Hayes & Beaubier

Leading the 2015 MotoAmerica SuperBike points standings is four-time and defending AMA Superbike Champion Josh Hayes, who will be looking to bolster his narrow four-point lead by winning Sunday’s twin Superbike feature races–for his eighth and ninth victories of the season–aboard his #1 Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha R1.

Meanwhile, the “Mississippi Madman’s” teammate Cameron Beaubier will try to even the score by notching his sixth and seventh Superbike victories this year. So far, the bLU cRU duo have won every single MotoAmerica Superbike race this season, and they hope to keep their unbeaten string going in front of the World Superbike crowd this weekend.

MotoAmerica Superbike Superpole (Qualifying) begins at Laguna Seca on Saturday, July 18, at 11:25 AM PST. Superbike Race 1 will go green on Sunday, July 19, at 9:40 AM PST, and Superbike Race 2 is set for later on Sunday at 4:45 PM PST.

Yamalube/Y.E.S./Graves/Yamaha: Beach & Gerloff

At Miller Motorsports Park a couple of weekends ago, Supersport points leader JD Beach enjoyed his second double-win outing of the MotoAmerica season. The wins were his sixth and seventh this year, as well as his fourth and fifth consecutive victories. Aboard the #95 Yamalube/Y.E.S./Graves/Yamaha YZF-R6, the Kentuckian will be looking to keep his winning streak going this weekend at Laguna Seca.

Currently third in the 2015 MotoAmerica Supersport points standings, and just 10 points out of second place, is JD’s teammate Garrett Gerloff. The Texan has one win this season aboard his #31 Yamalube/Y.E.S./Graves/Yamaha R6, and he’s hungry for more victories. There’s no better time or place to get those elusive wins than at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, with the world watching.
