Honda Rider Jake Zemke Sails To Superbike Win

Toole County, Utah (June 18, 2006) -- The drought for Honda and American Honda rider Jake Zemke officially ended at Miller Motorsports Park today. Zemke put in a strong showing to take The Honda Summit of Speed AMA Superbike Championship presented Parts Unlimited. For Zemke it was his first Superbike win since July of 2004. For Honda it has been since October of 2004.

"Well I was doing what I was trying to do yesterday and that was race hard the final five laps, said Zemke. Today I just put my head down again and it worked. I couldn't be happier for Honda as the title sponsor and myself."

Rounding out the top three were Suzuki riders Mat Mladin and current points leader Ben Spies.

In other action, Yamaha rider Jamie Hacking made a clean sweep in the Repsol Lubricants Superstock and the Pro Honda Oils Supersport Championship presented by Shoei Series.

"This is the first time that I've ever swept both series at the same venue," said Hacking. "I'm really riding very well."

Hacking currently leads the points chase in each series.

Next up at Millermotorsports Park, July 13-15, is the Larry H. Miller Dealerships' Utah Grand Prix featuring the American LeMans Series and the SCCA Speed World Challenge.

Tickets can be purchased on line at www.MillerMotorPark.com or at the Miller Motorsports Park ticket office.
