Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha Rider Beaubier Breaks Track Record, Earns 1st Career Daytona SportBike Provisional Pole At Road America; Teammate Hayden On Second Row

2012-06-01 18:00
Coming back from a couple of injuries earlier this season, Cameron Beaubier put his #6 Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha YZF-R6 on the provisional pole today in AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike qualifying at Road America.

Not only was it the first-ever Daytona SportBike provisional pole for Cameron, but his best lap time of 2:19.638 was the fastest anyone has ever circulated Road America’s historic 4.05-mile, 14-turn road course in DSB competition.

Cameron’s Y.E.S./Graves/Yamaha teammate Tommy Hayden, who is filling in for injured teammate Garrett Gerloff, qualified his #8 R6 in eighth place and is provisionally on row 2 going into final qualifying.

That final qualifying session for Daytona SportBike is scheduled for tomorrow at 8:50 AM CST, and DSB Race 1 will go green later tomorrow at 2:00 PM CST.
