***Spoiler*** AMA Superstock

YamahaR1




Graves Motorsports Yamaha’s Jamie Hacking clinched his second championship of the year, winning the Repsol Lubricants Superstock Championship with a flag to flag performance at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia.

Hacking, who won the Pro Honda Oils Supersport Championship at the previous round at Virginia International Raceway, becomes only the second rider to clinch both classes in the same year.It was done previously by Suzuki’s Doug Polen in 1988 when the Superstock machines were 750cc’s.

Hacking has been by far the most consistent in the class, finishing first or second in all ten rounds.

The title is Yamaha’s third in the class. Aaron Gobert, now with Erion Honda, won the title in 2004. Tom Kipp was the Superstock champion in 1995.

Hacking came to Atlanta with a mathematical chance of winning the title. To clinch it, he had to finish six points in front of Yoshimura Suzuki’s Aaron Yates. That was never an issue.

From second on the grid, Hacking bolted into the lead and set the pace. Teammate Eric Bostrom came with him, as did Erion Honda’s Josh Hayes, while Yates was outside the top five.

The two Yamahas were able to pull away until late in the race when first Hayes then Jason DiSalvo closed up.

Despite the late surges from third, the order at the front wouldn’t change. Hacking took his sixth win of the season, this one by .225 seconds over Bostrom.

Yamaha’s DiSalvo was third, a second back, with 2.4 seconds on Hayes.

Jordan Suzuki’s Steve Rapp was fifth, narrowly holding off late charging teammate Jake Holden.

Then came Yates, 16.990 seconds behind the winner.

With the final round at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course still to run, Hacking has an insurmountable lead, 314 to 282 over Yates. DiSalvo is third at 252.
