Racing Kawasaki's rider Corey Alexander won his fifth race in a row and sixth out of eight races so far this season. The race was red-flagged and restarted with a five-lap sprint to the checkered flag, and Altus Motorsports Suzuki's rider Brandon Paasch notched his first-career Stock 1000 podium with a runner-up result. It was an emotional ac- complishment for Paasch, who drew inspiration from his girl- friend's father Scott Briody. Also, a Stock 1000 competitor, Briody tragically passed away in an on-track incident on Friday. (See Wind, page 29.) Third place went to Cycle World/Octane/Chuckwalla Rac- ing's rider Andrew Lee, who is filling in for the injured Michael Gilbert. SUPERSPORT Landers Racing Yamaha's rider, 17-year-old Rocco Landers, had a breakthrough weekend in Super- sport. The former Twins Cup and two-time Junior Cup Champion followed up his race-one Supers- port win with another win in race two. In both races, Landers won by a significant margin, but his gap was gargantuan in race two. Finishing second both days was Josh Herrin aboard his Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati NYC Panigale, the current cham- pionship leader never getting comfortable with the Minnesota racecourse. Third place went to N2 Rac- ing/BobbleHeadMoto Yamaha's Josh Hayes. All told, the Supers- port podium in race two was the same as the Supersport podium in race one. MISSION KING OF BAGGERS In the penultimate Mission King Of The Baggers race of the sea- son, which was red-flagged and moved from the second race of the day to the second-to-the-last race of the day, Roland Sands ROUND 7 / JULY 30-31, 2022 BRAINERD INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY / BRAINERD, MINNESOTA P72 ROAD RACE I MOTOAMERICA AMA/FIM NORTH AMERICAN ROAD RACE CHAMPIONSHIP Corey Alexander won the Stock 1000 class for the fifth time in a row.
