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.

Sunday’s racing in the SuperSport class eventually got underway after being rescheduled to the afternoon due to two red flags, the second of which was flown because of a massive pileup on the front straight of Road America’s 4.02-mile course.

During the restart from the first red flag, Ricardo Valdez was knocked down and ran over by riders behind him. Tyler Linders, Hayden Gillim, Caroline Olsen, Roi Holster, Shawn Hill and Alex Shaw all went down in the melee. The race was halted to allow medical attention to be administered to several injured racers. Some were transported to the hospital, but reports conform no serious injuries.

Once the race got underway, close racing saw Corey Alexander bounce back from the earlier red-flag incident to take his second win of the weekend. Stefano Mesa finished second just twelve-thousandths of a second behind Alexander with Tomas Puerta back another one-thousandth. Travis Wyman matched his finish in the Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson XR1200 race with a fourth place. Rounding out the top five was Jeffrey Tigert, less than a half a second behind Alexander.
