The unbeatable GSX-R1000 is on course to take it all again, with many talented racers piloting the rocket ship bike on the track. Jake Zemke of the National Guard Jordan Suzuki team took first place in both races. His machine worked flawlessly throughout both 44-mile, 15-lap races.
Tommy Hayden steered his Rockstar Makita Suzuki GSX-R1000 to second place in both races. On Friday, he and Zemke were only .009 seconds separated as they crossed the finish line.
Aaron Yates of Jordan Suzuki won the pole position after nabbing the quickest qualifying lap in the day leading up to the double header. Yates ended up fourth overall at the end of the Daytona event.
