2020 New Jersey MotoAmerica Results

Press Release | September 13, 2020

Sunday

Superbike Race Two

Monster Energy Attack Performance Yamaha’s Cameron Beaubier leaves New Jersey Motorsports Park and heads to Barber Motorsports Park this week with a massive 84-point lead in the 2020 MotoAmerica Superbike Championship after, ahem, what was another walk-in-the-park victory for the four-time series champion.

While it’s too early to hand him the number-one plate with three rounds and eight races remaining the series, it’s about time to fire up the engraver.

2020 New Jersey MotoAmerica Results Beaubier wins race two
Easy as you like for Cameron Beaubier, or at least that’s how it looked.

Sunday’s win at NJMP came in a shortened race after a red flag was thrown on the second lap when Bradley Ward crashed his FLY Racing ADR Motorsports Kawasaki, putting debris on the racetrack. As he did on the first start, Beaubier grabbed the holeshot and never looked back, opening up a lead and maintaining it to the finish. At the completion of the 14 laps, Beaubier was 2.884 seconds ahead of his pursuers.

“Truthfully, I thought I was going to have a little advantage on these guys going into the second part of that race after the red flag because I was on that harder option tire,” Beaubier said. “I knew the softer tire heat cycles, and the grip definitely drops a little bit. I was riding as hard as I could from them. I was barely, barely inching away and sometimes I really wasn’t. I’m super happy that we had a good weekend here in New Jersey. It was an incredible weekend. We had perfect weather both days. It was great to ride in front of all these fans. We just need to keep going. We can’t get comfortable because both these guys keep making steps. We need to keep searching too. I’m just having so much fun riding right now and everything’s going good. I’m looking forward to getting on my bike at Barber. We had a good test there at the beginning of the season. Should be good.”

Gagne (32) and Scholtz kept Beaubier honest during race two.

Two of those pursuing Beaubier raced to the bitter end with his teammate Jake Gagne drafting past Westby Racing’s Mathew Scholtz at the finish line by .014 of a second with the two fighting it out for the duration. In addition to the battle on track, that pairing is also fighting it out for second in the title chase. Gagne now leads Scholtz by just six points.

“Yeah, it’s a great way to finish it, obviously,” Gagne said of his weekend that featured two crashes. “It’s probably been one of the toughest weekends in a long time. Usually one crash in a weekend is enough, and that’s more than we need. But two days in a row and crashing out the first lap of the race yesterday is just always a bummer. But I learned from it. It was a good race. We were all a little bummed to see that red flag there in that first start. I think we all wanted to go – except maybe Cam, I think we all wanted to go the full distance there. But I got off to a good start. Ran around the first kind of half of the 14-lap race. I knew Mat (Scholtz) was right on me. I knew it was Mat. Then Mat came by me on the front straightaway and passed me into one. I got an opportunity to kind of check some stuff out. Like he said, there were some sections I had him a little bit, some sections he was faster than me. So, we were kind of teeter-tottering. Going into the last lap, I wanted to try to get him into one. I felt pretty good in one. I know he was really strong in there, but I figured if I maybe could get inside of him, but he closed the door. Didn’t let that happen. For me, I knew it was going to be really tough to try to make a pass anywhere. I knew Mat knows this track and it’s tough on Superbikes. You really got to push it in there. Once I didn’t make that pass in one, I was thinking about that last turn. I knew if I stayed on him, I felt like the last turn was one of my strong sections. I could kind of just get in his draft if I timed it perfectly. Luckily that’s what I did. I just timed that thing perfectly by a hair there. Hats off to Mat. It was fun battling. It was fun to bring a race down to the last lap. It feels like it’s kind of been a little while since that happened. Hats off to Cam. Hats off to Yamaha. It’s good to have a couple Yamahas back up here. We’ll be back at Barber in a couple days. Looking forward to it.”

Soon after Scholtz took over second in the final laps, both he and Gagne were baulked by lapped traffic but Scholtz may have gotten the worst of it which allowed Gagne to claw his way back for his last-lap attack.

Wyman heads the Stock 1000/Superbike Cup riders in Cameron Petersen and Corey Alexander.

“There were certain sections of the track that I was struggling with and where Jake (Gagne) was faster,” Scholtz said. “On the final lap I kind of got stuck behind Sam (Verderico). Jake definitely beat me. Hats off to him. But in the back of my mind I always kind of have that, if I didn’t catch Sam at that point. But it is what it is. I’m just very thankful to be up here on the podium after crashing in morning warmup. Well done to Cam (Beaubier). He’s absolutely flying. I’m kind of happy that we weren’t so far back behind Cam. Just really looking forward to Barber next week. It’s definitely the strongest track for me. I know Cam and Jake both go well there too, so let’s do some more battles.”

Bobby Fong was next, the M4 ECSTAR Suzuki rider finishing some four seconds ahead of his teammate Toni Elias, the Spaniard failing to match the pace that earned him his first podium of the season on Sunday.

KATO Fastening/StoneCastle/KWR Ducati’s Kyle Wyman was sixth after finishing fourth on Saturday, the New Yorker getting the better of Altus Motorsports’ Cameron Petersen on Sunday. FLY Racing’s David Anthony rode his Suzuki GSX-R1000 to ninth with Travis Wyman Racing’s Travis Wyman rounding out the top 10 on his BMW.

After six rounds, Beaubier leads Gagne by 84 points, 275-191, with Scholtz third on 185 points. Fong is fourth with 138, 22 clear of Elias and 26 ahead of Wyman.

Supersport Race Two

The race of the day was in MotoAmerica’s Supersport class, and the three leaders in the season championship put on an absolute show for the fans. Early in the 20-lap event, Sean Dylan Kelly, Brandon Paasch, and Richie Escalante let it be known that they were in it to win, and the trio raced closely and passed each other often. Kelly, aboard his M4 ECSTAR Suzuki made a breathtaking pass up the inside of Escalante, in a spot where it didn’t seem like a pass was possible. And then, it was Paasch’s turn. Riding his Celtic HSBK Racing Yamaha, the local rider made almost the same pass on Escalante and in the very same turn. The only difference was that the opening was even more narrow, and Paasch left tire rubber on Escalante’s leathers on the way through.

It was photo finish stuff, but Kelly (40) just got there first.

At the checkers, Kelly took the win, Paasch finished second, and Escalante race his HONOS Kawasaki across the stripe to complete the podium.

“I’m really happy we’re here in the P1 spot, especially after yesterday,” Kelly said. “We had a tough day. Some issues and couldn’t even stay with the group with these two guys. It’s tough to have days like that where you just have to settle for third, which is obviously not bad, but knowing that you can fight up in the top group, it’s something tough. But the most important thing is my team worked really hard. We came in today and clearly showed that we can bounce back. They worked really hard last night on the bike. Not only that, but we also worked on some things. I did my homework, watched the races to see where they were clearly faster than me. Showed that we came back stronger than yesterday and really happy about that. The race was really, really fun. Both Richie and Brandon were right there the whole time. We had close passes, but I think all really, really good. It was good. Like Richie said, everyone had different lines and doing different stuff. So, it was definitely pretty fun. Just really happy to get these 25 points. I know that we just need to keep on working. Every racetrack is a different story. So, we’re just going to keep on going. We still have a few weekends to go and we’re going to keep on fighting.”

Twins Cup Race Two

By the way Rocco Landers has been dominating two different race classes this season – Liqui Moly Junior Cup and Twins Cup – you might think that Sunday’s Twins Cup race two was processional. And, if you’re talking about Landers only, you’d be right since he put in another dominant performance aboard his SportbikeTrackGear.com Roadracingworld.com Suzuki to win by nearly five seconds.

Landers cleared off for another win.

The battle for the rest of the podium was definitely the must-see part of the race with Hayden Schultz Racing Yamaha’s Hayden Schultz and Robem Engineering/Plastic Surgery Racing Suzuki’s Dominic Doyle dicing all the way to the checkered flag. At the stripe, it was Schultz over Doyle in a near-photo-finish, the pair separated by just .095 of a second. Meanwhile, 1-833-CJKNOWS Accident & Injury Law Yamaha rider Kaleb De Keyrel was even closer to Doyle, and he just missed out on a podium finish by .055 of a second.

“On the start, I thought I had a good initial launch, but I had trouble getting it from first to second, so he got by me there,” Landers said. “So, my goal was first or second into turn one and try to keep the lead at least in turn three. When I looked back, I saw, coming out of turn five I think, I saw Kaleb (De Keyrel) was there. I was like, ‘Oh, it’s going to be me and Kaleb the entire race fighting.’ And then I looked back the next lap and there was more space. So, I was like, ‘I’ll try to get a few good laps and put in some tire management.’ Then, on lap six or so, I started to see some raindrops. So, I was like, ‘Take it easy” because I had six seconds or so. I was like, ‘There’s no sense in throwing away a win trying to get some good laps.’ So, I’m happy.”

Junior Cup Race Two

In Sunday’s Liqui Moly Junior Cup race two, Landers completed a perfect weekend by taking the checkers first in his fourth race. And the Norton Motorsports/Ninja400R/Dr. Farr/Wonder CBD Kawasaki rider did it with authority, crossing the finish line by nearly nine seconds over Joseph LiMandri Jr., the Bauce Racing/CyberSafe Solutions/JL62 Racing Kawasaki rider a very happy, first-time podium finisher in second place at his home track. Third place went to Quarterley Racing/On Track Development Kawasaki’s Ben Gloddy, who equaled his third-place finish in Saturday’s race one with his second podium in a row.

“I’m stoked,” Landers declared after his win. “It’s a great weekend. This is my new favorite track. After the first lap, I was trying to get a couple good laps. I figured it would be me and Sam (Lochoff) the whole race, and then lap two, I looked back, and he wasn’t there. I had a moment going through turn six, I believe, mid-race. I just tried to settle down in the mid-30 lap times. I’m stoked. Awesome weekend.”

Saturday

Superbike

Dating back to last year, Cameron Beaubier has won 13 of the last 14 MotoAmerica Superbike races. On a sunny Saturday in New Jersey, Beaubier won his 10th of the 2020 season to extend his championship lead to a yawning 79 points over his Monster Energy Attack Performance Yamaha teammate Jake Gagne.

The win was also the 48th of the four-time MotoAmerica Superbike Champion’s AMA Superbike career and is closing in on his former teammate Josh Hayes (61 Superbike victories) for second on the all-time win list. The victory, however, didn’t come without a bit of pre-race stress.

2020 New Jersey MotoAmerica Results Beaubier wins race one
‘Twas another walk in the park for Cameron Beaubier (1) in New Jersey.

“Truthfully, we were sitting on the grid and I wanted to go with the softer option tire, and Dunlop and my team were like, ‘I think you’d be better off on the 097,’ “ Beaubier said. “I just didn’t think that I’d be able to open up a little gap like I’ve been able to do at the beginning of this season. So, I just didn’t know if I’d quite have the time on the harder tire, but I’m really happy I went with it. So, thanks to those guys for throwing it on. I don’t know what to say. I just feel so good on this thing. Like I’ve said all year, it’s just so enjoyable going to all these tracks that we’ve been going to year after year with this new package that we have. To finally be able to get in the 19s (one-minute, 19-second laps)… I know we’ve done 20s around here for years. To finally be able to break into that 19 mark and get that lap record this morning felt really, really good. Just want to keep this thing going.”

As has been the norm so far in 2020, Beaubier’s win was dominant with the Californian taking victory by 9.599 seconds over Westby Racing’s Mathew Scholtz, who took full advantage of Gagne’s first-lap crash to close in on the Californian for second in the championship point standings.

“Like you were saying, it’s the halfway point of the season so I’m looking forward to the championship for me, personally,” Scholtz said. “I kind of knew that we had to start gaining points on Jake (Gagne), so once he crashed, I thought, ‘now we can pick up some serious points there.’ Not saying that I could have kept up with Cam (Beaubier) because he’s riding awesome, but I was definitely thinking second place wouldn’t slow me down as far as the championship goes. So, I kind of just chilled to there and brought it home. Really happy with how the bike is going. Just had to catch up to Jake because we were pretty far back at one point. So, I was really happy there. Tonight, we’ve got a couple things that we wanted to try yesterday but due to the conditions we weren’t able to, so hopefully we’ll try them for the warmup tomorrow and try to close the gap on Cameron.”

Your SBK race one podium. It was Elias’ (right) first trip to the dais this year.

Third place went to a revitalized Toni Elias, the M4 ECSTAR Suzuki rider ending a podium-less drought that dated back 11 races.

“Not very, very happy but I feel it’s the first step,” Elias said. “This is positive. We are working hard. We did a little step this weekend. I felt the traction was coming back. There’re different things around this. We just opened the door and we found the group, so this group has to work now. It’s the first step and I’m happy.”

KWR Ducati’s Kyle Wyman bounced back from a disastrous round in the Pacific Northwest two weeks ago to finish fourth on his Ducati Panigale V4 R. Wyman was challenged early on by Bobby Fong but was able to pull clear of the M4 ECSTAR Suzuki rider to beat him to the flag by almost seven seconds.

Sixth place went to Ride HVMC Racing’s Corey Alexander, the New Yorker matching his previous best HONOS Superbike class result after barely holding off Altus Racing’s Cameron Petersen in the final laps. Petersen ended up seventh.

FLY Racing ADR Motorsports’ David Anthony and his teammate Bradley Ward finished eighth and ninth with Scheibe Racing BMW’s Josh Herrin rounding out the top 10.

After 10 HONOS Superbike races, Beaubier has 250 points – 79 more than Gagne and 81 ahead of Scholtz. Fong holds down fourth in the standings, 20 points ahead of his teammate Elias.

Supersport

The start and opening laps of Saturday’s Supersport race were an early indicator that the three main protagonists, Richie Escalante, Sean Dylan Kelly and Brandon Paasch, would engage in another classic middleweight battle. Kelly started from the pole aboard his M4 ECSTAR Suzuki, and Paasch and Escalante were in hot pursuit. Escalante rode his HONOS Kawasaki around Paasch and Kelly, and then, Kelly started going backwards, falling victim to a technical issue with his bike. That left Celtic HSBK Racing Yamaha’s Paasch close behind Escalante and looking for an opportunity to take the lead.

Despite some early battles, Richie Escalante (54) came out on top once again.

Unfortunately, that opportunity never materialized, and Escalante stretched his advantage to take the checkers by just under 3.5 seconds over second-place finisher Paasch. Kelly, meanwhile, kept himself in a podium position despite the issue with his bike and he crossed the finish line in third.

“I’m really happy to be back on the podium, of course, at the top,” Escalante said. “Today was a very hard race, very long. Twenty laps. In the first lap, everybody is on the same tire, normal is the soft and the medium. So, I raced with the soft tire. Normally, this tire in the first laps is really good, so you need to push and then be in care. So, I said, ‘I need to pass and go.’ Then this tire starts to slide and then the hard tire sometimes finishes stronger. I said, ‘Okay, time to pass and push as much as possible.’ Then every time very close. Brandon close, close, close. Hard race. I’m happy to win today. I need to improve tomorrow, for sure, to stay in the battle to win the race. I’m really happy. Thanks to my team and to all my sponsors. Ready for tomorrow.”

Twins Cup

Rocco Landers is on a roll. Not only has the Oregonian been successfully defending his Liqui Moly Junior Cup Championship this season, but he is also racing in MotoAmerica’s Twins Cup. After a couple of races to acclimate himself to the new-for-him race class, Landers has also become dominant on the bigger bike, too.

2020 New Jersey MotoAmerica Results Twins Cup Landers
Landers (97) cleared off for another win.

In Saturday’s Twins Cup race one, Landers rode his SportbikeTrackGear.com Roadracingworld.com Suzuki to his third win in a row, fourth victory of the season, and second win of the day (including his victory in Liqui Moly Junior Cup race one). Second place went to Trackworx Motorsports Suzuki’s Teagg Hobbs, the New Hampshirite notching the first MotoAmerica podium of his career. Hayden Schultz Racing Yamaha’s Hayden Schultz crossed the finish line in third.

“My crew chief, Thomas, and Barry Russell with KFG Motorsports, made a change before the race from qualifying, and the thing just felt so good,” said Landers. “It was hooking up from out of the corners. I tried to put in, like, three fast laps and go into tire management mode. I was just trying to keep the gap at about five seconds or so, and I think I did that for most of the race. The last few laps kind of trailed off. I was just trying to put consistent laps in. Keep taking risks, but not slow the heck down.”

Liqui Moly Junior Cup

Defending Liqui Moly Junior Cup Champion Landers started from the pole in Saturday’s race one, and he was never headed in the 13-lap event. Conditions were ideal for the race, and Landers, aboard his Norton Motorsports/Ninja400R/Dr. Farr/Wonder CBD Kawasaki, capitalized on the perfect weather and track surface by breaking the Junior Cup lap record at New Jersey Motorsports Park.

Celtic HSBK Racing Kawasaki rider Sam Lochoff, who slotted into second off the start, tenaciously maintained his position all the way to the checkers flag. Meanwhile, the battle of the race was for the third spot on the podium, and an overjoyed Bed Gloddy put himself and his Quarterley Racing/On Track Development Kawasaki on the box with a perfect draft-pass coming onto the front straight at NJMP.

Landers (1) is owning the Junior Cup in much the same fashion as Beaubier in Superbike.

“Sometimes you show up to the line, and you have this feeling,” said Landers. “You’re just ready to go fast. I felt like that today. It doesn’t happen every race for me. Don’t tell Sam (Lochoff) or Race Control, but I was playing a little Mario Kart out there, throwing some obstacles for him (in reference to him losing a knee slider with Lochoff almost hitting it). Great race. I was having a lot of fun. It was kind of strange because the moment I lost my knee slider, I started going consistently a half-second faster. It was really weird. So, tomorrow, we’ll hopefully have a knee slider and go for some good times.”

Stock 1000

Cam Petersen has said clearly that he wants a full-on Superbike ride, and the way he’s been riding his Altus Motorsports Suzuki this season in the Stock 1000 class, he’s also making a clear statement with the motorcycle he is racing. Petersen won Saturday’s Stock 1000 race by a margin of more than six seconds, and he actually backed it down a little bit towards the end of the race after pushing his advantage to more than eight seconds.

Petersen (45) again showed who’s boss in Stock 1000.

The other two riders who finished on the podium had a good battle throughout the majority of the 15-lap event, and Ride HVMC Racing’s Corey Alexander prevailed in second place over third-placed Michael Gilbert Racing’s Michael Gilbert, both riders aboard Kawasaki ZX-10R machines.

After his victory, Petersen said, “The bikes were moving around a lot, that’s for sure, from lap one. Kind of weird. I don’t know what it is with the temperature and the track or something changed, but I definitely had a weird feeling at the end of the race. I’m lucky enough with American Supercamp and obviously Josh Hayes, my riding coach. We’ve got some Supermoto bikes back in California and that’s all the things do, move around on corner entry and chatter and all kinds of crazy stuff. So, I think having that in my back pocket helped me out a lot with being able to ride a bike that might not always be set up to the way I want it. But, somehow, I feel like I’m able to ride through it. I got to give it up to these guys. Corey (Alexander) was rolling this weekend. I’m not going to lie. I was a little bit worried after this morning’s session. He put down a heater of a lap time and I was like, ‘It’s going to be a battle.’ But then, he obviously had the issues in the race with grip. Once again, my bike was working perfectly. It was a little bit stressful. Josh came and told me after the race that I only had a bit of a gap on the first lap. I had .5 on my board for the first three laps so I think that the team were just making sure that I didn’t settle down too early in the race. Once I saw the gap get up to about eight seconds, I backed it off a little bit and made sure I brought the thing home. Man, I’m happy. Winning is fun. I’m having so much fun riding my bike, so much fun with the team. I can’t thank the whole Altus Motorsports Suzuki Team enough.”

Friday

Iffy conditions ruled the day on a damp Friday at New Jersey Motorsports Park with Monster Energy Attack Performance Yamaha’s Cameron Beaubier tip-toeing through the puddles better than the rest to lead the first day of practice and qualifying in the HONOS Superbike class.

2020 New Jersey MotoAmerica Results Beaubier fastest Friday
In inclement weather, Beaubier went to the top in FP2.

Beaubier lapped at 1:23.802 in qualifying practice two to lead M4 ECSTAR Suzuki’s Bobby Fong by a tick over half a second in perilous conditions with at least two streams running across the track in different spots.

Jake Gagne, on the second Monster Energy Attack Performance Yamaha, ended the day third fastest, but paid a price for his efforts with a crash early in the final session. Although Gagne limped away from the crash, he was none the worse for wear except for the damage to his YZF-R1. Things then got worse for the Californian when he was DQd from the session because his bike was deemed to be out of MotoAmerica technical control after he rode it back to his garage instead of straight to parc ferme.

Westby Racing’s Mathew Scholtz was just .07 seconds behind Gagne and just .3 of a second ahead of M4 ECSTAR Suzuki’s Toni Elias. KWR Ducati’s Kyle Wyman ended the day fifth on his rebuilt Ducati Panigale V4 R after his disastrous weekend in Washington State two weeks ago left him with a lot of repairs.

2020 New Jersey MotoAmerica Results Landers fastest Friday
Rocco Landers topped the Twins Cup and Junior Cup time sheets.

FLY Racing ADR Motorsports’ David Anthony, his teammate Bradley Ward, Scheibe Racing BMW’s Josh Herrin, Superbike Underground’s Jeremy Coffey and Thrashed Bike Racing’s Max Flinders rounded out the top 10 from day one.

All five classes faced similar conditions and there were several crashes and near crashes.

M4 ECSTAR Suzuki’s Sean Dylan Kelly led Supersport Q1 over Celtic HSBK Racing’s Brandon Paasch and N2 Racing’s Xavier Zayat, though Zayat had a crash that ended his day.

Stock 1000 saw Ride HVMC Racing’s Corey Alexander slip in a fast lap right at the end to take the top spot away from Altus Motorsports’ Cameron Petersen.

Rocco Landers rode his Norton Motorsports/Ninja400R/Dr. Farr/Wonder CBD-backed Kawasaki to the fastest lap of the Liqui Moly Junior Cup, a 1:32.723, to best Bauce Racing/CyberSafe Solutions/JL62 Racing’s Joseph LiMandri Jr in Q1 with LiMandri suffering a crash after his best lap. Third fastest was BARTCON Racing’s Dominic Doyle, the South African having the save of the day when he was completely off the side of his Ninja 400, went on to the grass and rode the bike to a stop without tipping over.

Twins Cup Q1 was the final session of the day and was led by Landers and his SportbikeTrackGear.com Roadracingworld.com Suzuki over Hayden Schultz Racing’s Hayden Schultz and Trackworx Motorsports’ Teagg Hobbs.
