K-Tech Suspension equipped racers scored multiple victories and podium finishes in all major classes this weekend in AMA Pro Road Racing, BSB British Superbike, and World SuperSport.
In the AMA Pro Road Racing SuperSport class, 2011 champion and #1 plate holder James Rispoli kicked the weekend off with a second place qualifying effort on Friday at New Jersey Motorsports Park on his Celtic Orient Express Suzuki GSX-R 600, with teammate Corey Alexander close behind in third position aboard his National Guard Fairhills Group Suzuki GSX-R 600. Recent K-Tech convert Miles Thornton qualified fourth, making three out of four riders on the front row equipped with K-Tech Suspension. Rispoli would take his machine to the front of the field for the race win on Saturday, and a second place result on Sunday with Alexander finishing fourth. Both riders use K-Tech 20DDS front fork cartridges and 35DDS rear shocks for maximum grip, precision control, and enhanced confidence.
In the AMA Pro Road Racing XR1200 class, Shane Narbonne took his first AMA Pro Road Racing win in an exciting race, ahead of Michael Barnes and K-Tech equipped Tyler O'Hara who finished third. Both Narbonne and O'Hara's machines feature K-Tech IDS front fork cartridges and MT35 dual rear shocks, a combination that has proved successful all season. Overall, six of the top ten finishers in the XR1200 class used K-Tech products, and occupied two of three podium positions at the end of the race.
Jordan Suzuki rider Ben Bostrom qualified in fourth position for the AMA Pro Road Racing Superbike races, and was able to bring home a second place finish on Saturday on his #23 Jordan Suzuki GSX-R 1000. Bostrom finished fifth in Sunday's race, in a close battle for fourth. Teammate Roger Hayden piloted the #54 National Guard Jordan Suzuki to a third place finish on Sunday, and had qualified third. Both Jordan Suzuki riders use K-Tech 20DDS cartridges and 35DDS shocks.
