Beaubier Clinches MotoAmerica Crown
Beach, Dumas, & Lee claim titles as well
Cameron Beaubier claimed his third MotoAmerica Superbike title at New Jersey’s Thunderbolt Raceway this past weekend, after two wet, treacherous days of racing. Beaubier led race 2 from the get-go, sewing up the championship with the Barber round still ahead. Beaubier’s Sunday win also marked his eighth of the season, and his 32nd career, placing him in third on the all-time most wins list in AMA/MotoAmerica Superbike. Roger Hayden took second in Sunday’s race, followed by 2017 champ Toni Elias. Hayden has announced his retirement the end of the season.
JD Beach had clinched the Supersport title Saturday following a near flawless season, and added a Sunday win to his stellar resume. In Junior Cup, Alex Dumas sealed his 2018 championship over the weekend, earning enough points in the title chase to render him unreachable. Andrew Lee capped his Stock 1000 crown on Sunday as well, in soaking wet conditions. The only title still in play is Twins Cup, with Chris Parrish holding a mere two-point lead going into the final Barber round.
The 2018 MotoAmerica season wraps up at the renowned Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama. With the pressure off in several classes, the racing and festivities promise to be very entertaining, as the competitors set out to finish the season in dramatic fashion.
