BY RENNIE SCAYSBROOK PHOTOGRAPHY BY BRIAN J. NELSON I n sweltering conditions that saw the needle reach over 105 degrees on Friday and not much cooler on Saturday and Sunday, the Mo- toAmerica field descended on Circuit of The Americas for the first time as a standalone round and not as second fiddle to MotoGP. Jake Gagne and Josh Herrin emerged as the victors in the two Superbike encounters, the former put- ting an exclamation point on his 2023 title while the latter took his second Superbike victory of the year. In Supersport, Xavi Fores and Tyler Scott shared the wins, but it was Fores who walked away the 2023 series champion after his ninth win of the season in race one. For the Steel Commander Stock 1000 Championship runners, it was all Hayden Gillim who walked away with two race wins and the 2023 champi- onship on his Suzuki. Likewise, Tyler O'Hara won both races in the Mission Super Hooligan National Champion- ship to seal a second straight title. Finally, in the Mission King Of The Baggers, the title will go down to the wire at New Jersey after Kyle Wyman and James Rispoli took the main race wins, with Bobby Fong emerging victorious in the hectic three-lap Chal - lenge race on Saturday.
