The final round of the 2012 AMA Pro Pro Singles series came to a close on Saturday night and when the checkered flag dropped, the championship podium was dominated by Motorcycle- superstars.

It started with the first heat race where Parkinson Brothers Racing / Performance Cycle & Dyno / rider, Stephen VanderKuur ran away from the field aboard his Honda CRF450 crossing the finish line with an impressive lead over Superstore rider Jason Isennock. In heat two it was Weirbach Racing /’s Dominic Colindres who crossed the line first followed by Jake Shoemaker and Wyatt Maguire, both Superstore riders.

The stage was now set, as the front row of the Pro Single season finale was stacked with Bell Helmet racers. The race was one of the year’s best with several riders exchanging the lead. Isennock was in control prior to a red flag restart, then it was all VanderKuur – who could have finished anywhere in the top ten to win the title but chose to hang it all out, proving without a doubt why he was going to be the new Pro Singles Champion. The final podium was solid blue with grabbing all three positions; VanderKuur was first, Colindres was second and Wyatt Maguire finished third. Superstore’s Jake Shoemaker finished fourth on the day and took second overall in the series. Isennock ended up sixth and finished third in the series. All three riders shared part of the $25,000 Motorcycle-Superstore Points Fund. backed rider Dominic Colindres finished second in the Pro Singles match at the Pomona Half-Mile. backed rider Dominic Colindres finished second in the Pro Singles match at Pomona.
