Byron's sure to be hunched over a laptop after the checkers are flown, caught in his own little version of heaven. Whether on dirt, street or a combination of both, MotoUSA's newest addition knows the only thing better than actually riding is telling the story of how things went down.

Jake Lewis scored a Race 1 win in SuperSport.
Jake Lewis came out on top in SuperSport Race 1 after a tough battle against the top four riders.

Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki’s Jake Lewis took home the win in SuperSport Race 1 at Road America.’s Stefano Mesa claimed second thanks to a final lap pass of Celtic Racing’s James Rispoli, who settled for third. Castrol Triumph’s Dustin Dominguez held onto fourth-place and was followed by Yamaha’s Tomas Puerta in fifth.

The battle for first was neck-and-neck up to the final laps of the race. Early on, it was Lewis and Rispoli trading position out front, with Mesa keeping pace in third. A red flag with five laps to go paused the action after Outlaw Racing’s Hunter Coffin went down. When the riders returned, Rispoli regained the lead but soon began to trade position with Dominguez, Lewis and Mesa. Once the Vesrah Suzuki ace got hold of the lead again though, he held steady and ended over three seconds ahead of Mesa.

Puerta looked to be in position for a podium finish before and just after the red flag. The Yamaha rider held the fastest lap time until Lewis bested it on the penultimate lap. Road Race Factory’s Hayden Gillim managed to move up the timesheet in the final laps of the race as well, scoring sixth place ahead of SuzukiScoop’s Elena Myers. Myers sat as high as fifth place during the contest, but began to slip in the final laps.

James Rispoli remains at the top of the SuperSport West division. Road Race Factory’s Hayden Gillim remains second in the West division. Lewis and Mesa are first and second in Eastern division points and will have the opportunity to add to their totals during the next Eastern Division AMA Pro SuperSport round at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama June 22 – 24, 2012.
