,. .... . ., ~ ~ - Chalk up another one fo;··K~~asaki. Now try and remember when anyone put together a string of Superbike victories like this. When Eddie Lawson hammered the rest of the pack at Laguna Seca, he collected his fourth first-place trophy of the season. Combine this with teammate Wayne Rainey's win at Loudon and that makes five in a row for us this season. Including the Bell Superbike Triple Crown Series. No wonder we're celebrating. Besides flat out-riding 39 other racers, Eddie showed a Laguna crowd the kind of high-performance engine wizardry that's bouncing around in tuner Rob Muzzy's head. A.I1d he proved once again that when you start out with a machine like the KZIOOO, you end up with a Superbike that's proving itself unbeatable. Even Rainey, who slid off the track, put on a great show. He dusted himself off, jumped back in over a lap down, and by the finish, he'd blasted back up to tenth. A lot of the competition would . have been happy just to be around at the end, much less finish in the points. Eddie and Wayne are still first and second in the standings, way ahead of the field. And you can bet these boys aren't through yet. The good times just keep rolling. At number five, and counting. ./ KiiIKiit _c:~~3 KaWclSd kl believes In nd mQ Sdfel y Check loc al laws be fore yo u ride Mem be r AMA and MSF 3
