AMA SuperBike Barber Race 1 Results 2014

Monster Energy Graves Yamaha’s Josh Hayes won AMA Pro SuperBike Race 1 at Barber by a massive margin after a number of top riders crashed out of competition. ADR Motorsports’ David Anthony finished in the runner-up spot, taking his second podium finish of the season, followed by Yoshimura Suzuki’s Chris Clark in third.

Hayes grabbed hold of the lead in the opening turns followed by Clark’s teammates, Roger Hayden and Martin Cardenas in second and third, respectively. Cardenas didn’t even make it through the opening lap though, crashing out hard in the final corners. The race continued with Hayes, Hayden and Hayes’ teammate, Cameron Beaubier, battling in the top 3 spots followed by KTM/HMC’s Chris Fillmore in 4th and Anthony in fifth.

Beaubier began to lose ground on the front runners on Lap 4 and a few rotations later the Yamaha rider suffered an off. GEICO Motorcycle’s Chris Ulrich also crashed in a separate incident, forcing officials to red flag the race.

Hayes and Hayden were quick to regain the front after the restart and the Suzuki ace pressured Hayes for a number of laps in pursuit of the lead. The 2 remained steady in position until Lap 16 of 21 when Hayden suffered a big crash in the same corner that claimed Cardenas, leaving Hayes all alone in the lead to the finish.

Soon after Hayden’s off, Fillmore was forced off into the gravel with a mechanical issue. Foremost Insurance’s Larry Pegram finished in 4th followed by Team AMSOIL Hero’s Cory West in fifth and Vicious Cycle Racing’s Sean Dwyer in sixth.

Hayes moves into the points lead ahead of Anthony, who jump to second. Hayden is down to third with Clark trailing in 4th and Beaubier in fifth.
