Zemke-2011-Daytona.jpg
Jake Zemke: "To come back third was the best we could do. My hat’s off to these guys; they rode a great race. One time I got shuffled back to fourth or fifth and I didn’t really like being back there—too much action for me. This place can bite you, and as you can see there at the finish, it bit a couple of them. You have to really use your head out there. It’s a long race, and we all want to come home in one piece. For the most part the boys all rode really good, but I want to commend JD Beach—for a rookie kid coming in here, I think he did a really good job."
