ElkahrtSupersportSat.jpg 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.

Gagne-DSB-Sat-Elkhart14.jpg Jake Gagne had to win Saturday’s Daytona Sportbike race twice. He’d built over a seven-second lead when a crash by Joe Roberts in turn five brought out the red flag. On the three-lap restart Gagne had the attitude that he was “just going to have to put my head down and do it again.” That’s just what he did. In a spectacular final lap, Gagne pulled out a to a 1.318 second win. Garrett Gerloff held on for second in an epic last lap battle with J.D. Beach, Jake Lewis and Dane Westby. (Larry Lawrence photo)
