Jordan Suzuki's Yates Wins Barber

Michael Jordan Motor Sports Suzuki's Aaron Yates celebrated his 15th career AMA Superstock victory by winning Sunday afternoon's 17-lap AMA Superstock race at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama. This is also Yates' third consecutive AMA Superstock win at the scenic Barber facility. Yates was joined on the podium by Roadracingworld.com Suzuki's Chris Ulrich. Ulrich came into the Barber race with a fourth-place finish at the season-opening round at Daytona International Speedway. These results put Yates and Ulrich in first- and second-place overall, respectively, in the AMA Superstock championship points chase.

Aaron Yates: "I really enjoy the Barber race track a lot. You're always doing something going uphill, going downhill, jumping over a curb. You're always turning and the track flows really nicely. The Jordan Suzuki GSX-R1000 handles that excellently."

Chris Ulrich: "For sure, I didn't expect to be on the podium. I got a pretty good start on my Roadracingworld.com Suzuki GSX-R1000 and then some guys crashed in front of me. I was trying to hang on to fourth place and I came over the hill and saw another rider down. At that point, I just tried my best not to crash. To get out of Barber with a podium is fantastic. I cant' thank m y Roadracingworld.com Suzuki team enough. I'm racing against some really fast guys and I'm looking forward to a long, hard season."
