Alexander Narrowly Misses Top Spot In Third Consecutive Podium Finish At NJMP

2019-09-12 08:58
Corey Alexander misses a win by .145 securing his third consecutive podium with a second place finish at New Jersey Motorsports Park.

The RideHVMC Freeman racing Kawasaki team with support from RARacing and JJD Corp earned their third podium finish in a row in just four race starts this past Sunday at the New Jersey round of the MotoAmerica Superstock 1000cc championship. After positioning himself within the top three all weekend with an overall qualifying time of 1:22:994, Corey worked his way up through the field after struggling off the starting line from his third place starting spot.

After being shuffled back to the seventh position, Alexander committed to some aggressive passing maneuvers to work his way up to second with just a handful of laps remaining in the shortened twelve lap sprint race. Tracking down the leader, he was able to clock in the fastest lap time of the race with a 1:23:085. Corey ultimately was unable to manage a pass around the leader on the final lap marginally missing the top step of the podium by .145 with his 2019 Kawaski ZX-10R.

“It’s been a long while since I’ve charged for a win like that in MotoAmerica competition.” Alexander comments “I couldn’t be more excited to have been able to do it in front of all of my friends and family here in NJ. It’s unfortunate that I caught a false neutral off the starting line because I know we had a bike capable to win the race had we been there from the start. Thank you to everyone still supporting me after all this time and those that stepped up this season to help me get back on track. I’m hoping that these three podium finishes will help to make something happen for next season and allow us to come back to compete for the championship. I have to give a special thank you to Jon Freeman and Rich Meilman for making this past weekend happen, it wouldn’t have been possible without them. Thanks to all of our sponsors as well.”

This round marks the end of the Corey’s 2019 campaign with a highlighted off-season focus on returning for the 2020 season to compete full time in the Superstock 1000cc championship.
