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.

Houston Superbikes’ Dustin Dominguez took the win in AMA Pro SuperSport Race 1 at Mid-Ohio, outpacing TOBC Racing’s Hayden Gillim by a multi-second gap at the checkers. Celtic Racing’s Wyatt Farris took his first podium finish since the opening round at Daytona in third.

Dominguez, Gillim and Farris’ teammate, Corey Alexander, ran to the front of the field through the opening turns, with Gillim taking charge of the front. Dominguez was right on his tail though, and the two immediately began to break away, with Alexander the only rider capable of keeping the two front-runners in sight. Dominguez was hounding Gillim during the initial laps, passing for the lead on Lap 2. Gilliam responded on the next rotation to regain the front but Dominguez was quick to retaliate. Alexander, all the while, maintained a lonely position in third, not quite able to close the gap to the leaders.

Alexander lost any hope of challenging for the win later in the race when he suffered an off in Turn 4, giving third over to Farris. The battle for third was close between Farris and Excel Racing’s Conner Blevins after that, with Farris taking the final step on the podium by a slim 0.058 seconds.

Up front, Dominguez stretched a gap on Gilliam through the final laps for the win. Blevins took fourth followed by House of Paint Designs’ JC Camacho in fifth and De Keyrel Racing’s Kaleb De Keyrel in sixth. Harv’s Harley-Davidson’s Cody Wyman finished in seventh while Super C Racing’s Carl Soltisz took eighth.

Gillim retains the points lead, but Dominguez is closing in now seven points back in second. Alexander is third followed by Farris in fourth and De Keyrel in fifth.
