Design Indian's rider Bobby Fong won his first Big Twin fea- ture race of the year. And he did it by making an incredible inside pass on Mission Foods/S&S Cycle/Indian Challenger Team's Tyler O'Hara, who was in the lead. After Fong threaded the needle—a very large needle—H-D Screamin' Eagle's Travis Wyman followed him through, also over- taking O'Hara, who was quickly shuffled from first to third, with Wyman ending up second. Defending class champion Kyle Wyman was disqualified af- ter a technical infraction, and his teammate and younger brother Travis now leads the champion- ship by three points over O'Hara with only the race at New Jersey Motorsports Park in September to decide it all. SPORTBIKETRACKGEAR.COM JUNIOR CUP "Running with the pack" is a continuing theme for the riders in the Junior Cup Championship. In vir- tually every race, the key is to be in the group of riders at the front, and then make your move for the lead in the closing laps. Such was the case for Altus Motorsports Kawasaki's rider Kayla Yaakov in Junior Cup race one. She battled hard with a group of five riders at the front, and on the final lap, the 15-year- old put her head down, took the lead, and created a gap to ensure her second victory of the season. Yaakov bested Sport- Kawasaki's rider Joseph LiMandri Jr. by just over one second, who, in turn, beat third-place finisher and Alpha Omega Kawasaki's rider Cody Wyman by almost the same margin of just over one second. In race two, Max Van led four of the five laps, and most impor- tantly, the final lap, as he took the checkered flag aboard his Sport- Kawasaki. Race-one winner Yaakov finished second and Wyman rounded out the podium in third.
