Josh Hayes Wins 2011 AMA Superbike Championship in Spectacular Fashion
If you missed this race then you missed the finale to THE most exciting championship race in AMA superbike history. The title came down to Hayes or Blake Young who were separated by a hand full of points. On every lap the championship outlook was different with the shuffle of riders in the top five. All Josh had to do to secure the title was finish 3rd. At times he saw himself back in 5th with title rival Young in the lead. Hayes made some crazy moves and almost went down a couple times but worked his way up to finish 2nd. Blake won the race and the battle but lost the war. Even though Blake won twice as many races as Josh it was all due to the bonus points for pole position and laps led that ultimately swung the championship in Hayes’ favor. I congratulate Josh for his second successive AMA Superbike championship, giving Censport Graphics its first major championship! Thanks Josh, and here’s to another great year in 2012.
