***Spoiler*** AMA Superstock Results

Graves Motorsports Yamaha swept the Repsol Lubricants Superstock podium, with Eric Bostrom holding off a charging Jamie Hacking, while Jason DiSalvo was a distant third.

It was Bostrom's first Superstock victory, Yamaha’s first ever Superstock podium sweep, and the first time this season that Yoshimura Suzuki’s Aaron Yates didn’t finish on the podium. Yates finished fourth, minutes after finishing second in the Superbike race.

The win gives Hacking a 32 point championship lead, 314 to 282 over Yates, with DiSalvo third at 252, with two races remaining.

Bostrom led every lap across the stripe, but with little comfort in the second half. He’d built a lead of over two seconds on Hacking, who took second from Yates before the midpoint of the 17 lap race.

Hacking whittled away at the lead until he was in a position to make a pass, which he did, on the track, but not at the line, around lap 14.

The pressure continued, but Bostrom never wavered and took his first Superstock win of the year. He also won Saturday’s Formula Xtreme race.

“I’ve been trying to chase Jamie down and he’s beaten me at every race,” Bostrom said. “It was nice to get one on him here.”

“I guess we’re in championship mode,” Hacking said. “I’m still hungry for the wins. I want those wins.”

Said DiSalvo, “This race I’m happy with. I’ll take third place. It was an awesome race,” Erion Honda’s Josh Hayes came fifth after spending most of the race on the tail end of the top four.

Jordan Suzuki’s Steve Rapp finished sixth, picking up a spot when teammate Jason Pridmore crashed late in the race.
