2020-06-03 04:41
Iconic Motorbikes Auctions backed RideHVMC Racing team earned a third place podium in the Stock 1000 Race and a top 10 finish in Superbike Race 2.

Road America marked the start of the MotoAmerica season after a brief hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With Iconic Motorbikes Auctions on board as a title sponsor for the round the team arrived prepared and ready to compete in both the MotoAmerica Stock 1000 and Superbike classes.

After immediately showing the speed and capability of the Graves Motorsports powered Kawasaki ZX-10R, Corey qualified onto the front row of the starting grid with a personal best time of 2:16.9 around the 4 mile road course. This led to an eventful race with a battle for the lead till ¾ race distance at which point the top 4 began to spread apart. Corey and the RideHVMC Racing team were able to secure a third place podium finish against some strong competitors on very fast machinery.

Through a new program dubbed the "Superbike Cup", Corey and a handful of other Stock 1000 competitors have been given the opportunity to participate within the Honos Superbike Class on their Stock 1000 machinery. Superbike race 1 saw Corey with a potential top ten finish but unfortunately had to settle for 12th place as the teams Stock 1000 spec’d race bike began to run out of fuel with two laps to go due to a fuel capacity just shy of being capable of the longer Superbike race distance.

A special allowance by MotoAmerica in Superbike Race 2 allowed Corey and his fellow Stock 1000 spec shod competitors to bypass the warm-up lap. This one lap difference narrowly enabled Alexander to ride to an 8th place finish even as he began to run out of fuel on the last lap.

Corey commented “Obviously our goal is always to win and battle up front with the fastest guys but Road America is a tough track for us with my size being an obvious disadvantage. I am happy we made it through the first weekend safely with a podium finish and some great points in both classes. It’s going to be a long year and we are in it for the championship battle.” The RideHVMC Racing team heads back to Wisconsin for round two at Road America in just a months time, June 26-28th!
