Jordan Suzuki Double-Podiums at Infineon Superstock Race
Aaron Yates & Geoff May bring home second & third

Michael Jordan Motor Sports Suzuki's Aaron Yates and Geoff May doubled up on the AMA Superstock podium at Infineon Raceway on Sunday afternoon by finishing in second and third positions, respectively. The Jordan Suzuki duo was charging hard for first and second positions when the 17-lap race was abbreviated after a red flag was thrown when riders went down. For the Jordan Suzuki team, Sunday's results mean that three-time AMA Superstock Champion Yates has two AMA Superstock victories and two additional podium positions this season. Additionally, the Georgia native maintains the lead in the championship points chase. Jordan Suzuki teammate May also put in an impressive ride on his Jordan Suzuki GSX-R1000, picking up his second AMA Superstock podium of the season. May, also from Georgia, is currently tied for third place overall in the championship.

Aaron Yates:

"The race today was pretty good. I definitely felt like had something for Jake (Holden) because the Jordan Suzuki GSX-R1000 was working good, and getting around the track really quick. I got off to a really great start, so I just tried to put my head down and make a breakaway and see what would happen. I had a good first couple of laps on the Jordan Suzuki GSX-R1000, and then those guys caught up to me. I rode around in second place for a couple of laps and Jake made a few mistakes that helped me out. I thought I could make a move toward the end of the race and I felt like the lappers could help me out. I was hoping for a little luck but the race got cut short and so we got second."

Geoff May:

"We worked real hard on bike setup this weekend, and I felt like we were right there with the race leaders. I was sitting there in third for the whole race, trying to figure out where I could make a move. I don't think any of us had anything on the other one, so it would have come down to the last lap. And I really felt like I had it at the end, I was hoping to put a last-lap pass on Aaron and Jake or maybe capitalize on they're trying to pass each other. But it didn't work out for us at the end with the red flag. We got cut short a lap or two, but thanks to the Jordan Suzuki team and crew for sticking with me and for helping me get up on the podium."
