Raised on two wheels in the deserts of Nevada, the newest addition to the MotoUSA crew has been part of the industry for well over 15 years.Equal parts writer, photographer, and rider, "JDawg" is a jack of all trades and even a master of some.

Jake Gagne improved on his second-place finish from Race 1 at Road America with a win in the GoPro Daytona SportBike class. This is the RoadRace Factory Yamaha rider’s first victory this season with a 4.191-scond lead at the checkers. His first-place finish came after a heated battle with Race 1 Winner Cameron Beaubier.

Beaubier rebounded from a late-race mistake to capture the runner-up position. Even with his second place finish today, he still leaves Road America with points lead.

From the get-go Gagne had the early lead, leading a pack of five riders jockeying for the front that included Beaubier, Jake Lewis, JD beach and James Rispoli. Beaubier got through on the fifth lap, but had to fight with Gagne for several corners to hold onto the lead.

Shortly after the leader bobbled with a near high-side allowing Gagne to strike and get back past for the lead. With just two laps to go Beaubier ran off the track after almost running up the backside of Gagne. Thus handing a hard fought win to Gagne.

For the final podium spot, Lewis and and Beach got into a drafting battle all the way down to the finish line with the #85 crossing the threshold first. Beach settled for fourth with Garret Gerloff placing a distant fifth ahead of James Westby and Rispoli.
