MotoAmerica: The Medallia Superbike Championship Heads to Brainerd International Raceway
The Medallia Superbike Championship heads to Brainerd this weekend in Minnesota for the 6 round of the season. 6 classes (Medallia Superbikes, Supersport, Steel Commander Stock 1000, Junior Cup, Mission King of the Baggers & Royal Enfield Build.Train.Race) will battle it out for championship points this weekend. A fight of note is the top spot in Medallia Superbike.
After a triple header weekend at the last round at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. Superbike returns for a double header in Minnesota which could have implications on the championship point standings. Currently Jake Gagne (Fresh N Lean progressive Yamaha) is currently 34 points ahead of rival Cameron Beaubier (Tytlers Cycle Racing). With 50 points up for grabs via two first place finishes there is a possibility we will see some movement in the standings.
As we previously announced, Josh Hayes will be joining Jake Gagne with the Fresh N Lean Progressive Yamaha side as a substitute for the injured Cameron Petersen. Hayes whom normally participates in the Supersport competition will pull double duty this weekend as he makes his second superbike appearance of the year.
