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.

California SuperBike School’s Joe Roberts dropped in at Barber Motorsports Park for his AMA Pro SuperSport debut is proving to be a serious contender on track. Roberts has been the fastest rider in the class all weekend, topping the timesheet in Friday practice and then in both qualifying sessions. He capped it off with the Race 1 win, coming across the finish over eight seconds ahead of RoadRace Factory’s Tomas Puerta. Another newcomer, TOBC Racing’s Nick McFadden, proved to be able to keep pace with the regulars in the class, earning the final step on the podium.

Roberts has been a competitor in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, but he recently turned 16 and became eligible for AMA Pro racing. He wasted no time once Race 1 was under way, pushing to the front of the pack in the opening laps. Team 95’s Hayden Gillim trailed in second and Puerta held to third. CTR Racing’s Miles Thornton settled into fourth-place and McFadden was fifth, and in the early portion of the race competition was close in the lead pack, with just fractions of a second separating the riders in the top-five.

Roberts proceeded to leave the field behind as he stretched a gap that grew bit-by-bit through every lap. Behind, riders traded positions in a frantic back-and-forth battle for a spot on the rostrum.

Gillim ended the day in fourth-place with Thornton trailing in fifth. National Guard’s Corey Alexander trailed Thornton by over 10 seconds at the finish, taking sixth-place followed by Meen Motorsports’ Wyatt Farris in seventh.

In SuperSport East points,’s Stefano Mesa continues to lead. Alexander crept closer to the top spot, now sitting four points shy of Mesa’s 108 current total. Gillim is third followed by Harv’s Harley-Davidson’s Travis Wyman in fourth.
