MotoAmerica Supersport Round 6 – Herrin Looking to Extend his Massive Supersport Title Lead as MotoAmerica Heads to Minnesota

2022-08-02 02:26
Josh Herrin (Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati NYC - #2) will face off against America’s best Supersport protagonists this weekend as the series moves to the Great Lakes area of Minnesota.

It will be Herrin’s first time at the 2.5-mile, 13-turn Brainerd racetrack, a place steeped in history as the first venue to host an American round of WorldSBK in 1989, after missing MotoAmerica’s return to the venue in 2021.

The Californian holds an astonishing 81-point advantage in the title chase—over three race wins—from Suzuki’s Tyler Scott, and a good performance here could see Herrin put one hand on the 2022 MotoAmerica Supersport Championship. This would be a first not just for him but also for Ducati North America.

Josh Herrin (Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati NYC - #2): “I’m super excited about this weekend. We tested at Brainerd earlier in the year to make sure we had the gearing all dialed in, so that is one thing less we have to do at this track,” Herrin said. “I’m just hoping to have as much fun this weekend as we’ve had all year. The Ducati V2 is fantastic to race and gives me so much motivation to do my absolute best each time I go out on the circuit. We’re in a good position in the championship, and I’m excited to get out to Minnesota and meet some of the fans, as I know this is a huge event. This is a new racetrack for me after missing last year, and I can’t wait to get after it.”

Round six of the 2022 MotoAmerica Supersport Championship kicks off with the opening practice on Friday, July 29 at 9:40 AM CDT. Race one is scheduled for Saturday, July 30 at 2:10 PM CDT with race two due to take place on Sunday, July 31 at 2:10 PM CDT.
