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.

Monster Energy Graves Yamaha’s Josh Hayes scored the AMA Pro SuperBike Race 2 win at Barber by a comfortable margin, crossing the line over seven seconds ahead of Yoshimura Suzuki’s Martin Cardenas in second. Hayes’ teammate, Cameron Beaubier, claimed the final step on the podium.

Hayes wasted no time, rocketing off the start into the early lead, building a gap on the field within the opening laps. Behind, Cardenas and his teammate, Roger Hayden, settled into second and third while Beaubier put himself into fourth. Beaubier had some trouble early on, losing one position to ADR Motorsports’ David Anthony during the initial stages and losing sight of the Yoshimura Suzuki duo. Anthony and Beaubier swapped positions a handful of times during the early portion of the race before Beaubier found his groove and pulled away.

By that time Hayes was in another time zone while Cardenas and Hayden were pacing in podium position. Beaubier started to up the pace mid-way through the contest and during the final laps had closed a four-plus second gap to run directly behind Hayden. The Yamaha ace quickly passed Hayden and then set his sights on Cardenas, challenging for second during the latter stages. Beaubier made a slight mistake which forced him a little wide, allowing Cardenas to pull away and from there Beaubier maintained a steady pace rather than try to close the gap in the brief time left before the finish.

Hayden, meanwhile, lost steam toward the end and was eventually passed by Anthony, who finished fourth. Hayden’s teammate, Chris Clark, finished in sixth followed by GEICO Motorcycle’s Chris Ulrich in seventh and Team AMSOIL Hero’s Cory West in eighth.

Hayes moves into the outright points lead ahead of Anthony, who jumps from fourth to second. Hayden falls to third and Beaubier is now fourth.
