Corey Alexander Wins Supersport, Broken Collarbone and All
Photography by Larry Lawrence
Corey Alexander broke his collarbone only a few weeks ago in a training accident, but he had surgery to fix the bone and it worked well. At Road America Alexander did exactly what he did in Daytona’s Supersport races and that’s pull out an early lead on his Celtic/HVMC Suzuki and hold it to the flag.
Alexander took over the lead from fast-starting Hayden Gillim early on the first lap and then steadily stretched out his lead to a 4.236 second margin of victory over Oklahoman Dustin Dominguez on the Houston Superbikes Yamaha. Gillim finished off the podium finishers.
This marked the third consecutive win for Alexander at Road America.
“My crew gave me a great bike today,” Alexander said. “I think the other guys will make some changes and it’ll be a lot closer tomorrow, but hopefully I can put it on top again.”
The battle of the race was between Wyatt Farris and Kaleb De Keyrel. The two fought over the position nearly the entire way and in the end Farris took the spot.
The victory extends Alexander’s lead in the series to 22 points over Farris.
