RCR Performance - Championship Season

AFM Round 7 Race Report
Round 7 of the American Federation of Motorcyclists Roadracing Championships was certainly one to remember for Ricky Corey Racing. After wrapping up the Open Superbike Championship in round 6, we decided to race round 7 of Open Superbike for fun. We were able to get the hole-shot on the start and pull a commanding lead and win the race. The victory wheelie down the main straight and across the finish line was icing on the cake.
AFM 2013 Number 1
The Formula Pacific Championship was ours to lose going into the last round. With a large points lead, all we needed to win was to finish the race, but that was not what we were here for. We showed up to race for the win and have fun doing so. The competition was strong for this round, bringing some big names and fast bikes to the grid. Jake Holden, Shane Turpin, and Chris Siglin just to name a few of our competitors for the final round made this race exceptionally challenging. "I started this race knowing that I needed to get a good start and put my head down to try and pull a gap and that's exactly what I did. I knew I didn't have to win the race to win the championship, but this is what we are here for, we are here to win every time we race. My RCR Performance YZF-R1 was running great and our lap times showed it from Saturday practice. I knew that if I could get a good start and concentrate on running consistent fast laps on my own, that I could pull away. Every lap my pit board read about one more second gap. When I started the last lap I saw a 4.5 second gap and this is when I knew for sure that we had it won and all I had to do was complete the last lap to win the race and the championship, earning me the AFM #1 plate for the second time in a row.''
Thanks to the AFM staff and corner workers for providing a challenging and safe racing weekend.
