MotoAmerica: #RideHVMC Freeman Racing Ducati Secures Two Top Ten Finishes at Laguna Seca

Corey Alexander was able to maintain intense focus at Mazda Raceway

RideHVMC Freeman Racing Ducati traveled to the west coast for the penultimate 2016 MotoAmerica event at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca this past weekend. Corey Alexander rode the #23 Panigale R with added confidence, scoring a ninth place finish in race one, and improving to an eighth place finish in race two in Superstock 1000. The combined Superbike/Superstock field was banging elbows throughout the weekend, in perfect weather conditions. The entire team spent a great deal of time with the Panigale R before and during the race weekend, learning more through long days of practice, qualifying, and racing.

Corey Alexander maintained intense focus before and during the event at Laguna Seca, which combined World Superbike and MotoAmerica events. Keeping the weekend in perspective, Corey stated that “even though the results are not representative of the progress we have made with the Panigale R, I'm still very happy to be inside the top ten in both races, and actually to have had the opportunity to compete with some of the guys we need to be closer to. I'm excited to get home and back to work. Thanks everyone for the continued support!” Corey’s personal sponsors include: American Kargo, Arai Helmets, Boxed Water Is Better, Defy All Odds Apparel, JP43 Training & STAR School, Lapizta Watches, Outdoor Tech, Spidi Leathers, and XPD Boots.

Team principal Richie Alexander stated "We are very happy with Corey's results in light of some of the struggles we have had over the last few races. Laguna Seca was really the first time Corey had a bike under him that worked properly in the dry. With the #RideHVMC Freeman Racing Ducati team getting such a late start to the season, and initial difficulties getting the electronics sorted, it has been tough going. Luckily we have some good people behind us, and we are on the right path. The Panigale R is a great motorcycle and we are looking forward to the last race in New Jersey.” #RideHVMC Freeman Racing Ducati returns home to the east coast for the final round of races at New Jersey Motorsports Park, September 9 through 11.
