First and second place go to racers with SBS brakes in the Yamaha bLU cRU R3 Cup at the WERA GNF at Barber Motorsports Park. Both Jackson Blackmon, who placed first, and Ashton Yates, second, ran the SBS 931RS brake pads and dominated the race by pulling a gap of over 6-seconds down to third place. In addition, Geoff May won both the Open Superstock Expert and WERA Superbike classes being the only rider to dip into the 1:26 lap times. Returning racer Gary Virgin seemingly won everything he entered this season and wrapped up 16 championships at the GNF.

Chris Jensen, SBS North American Market Manager states: “The inaugural grass-roots racing cup is a winner take all thrill event and we couldn’t be happier for our riders and the results. Congratulations to Jackson and Ashton! SBS also dominated with six out of the top ten racers in Open Superstock Expert and WERA Superbike on our pads.
