It was a win, win, win situation for the Motorcycle-Superstore.com
support riders as they slid into the final round of the AMA Pro Flat Track J&P Cycles
ProSingles Championship series in Pomona, California. The title was up for grabs and Wyatt Maguire, Ryan Wells and current champion Stephen VanderKuur all had a mathematical shot at it, but it was J.R. Addison who stood on top of the podium Saturday night.
For Addison, this was his first (actual) overall win in the J&P Cycles ProSingles class. Addison was awarded the win two weeks earlier at the Santa Rosa Mile when he set the fastest qualifying time, but then the race was cancelled due to inclement weather. His fast time was obviously not a fluke as he powered his Parkinson Bros. Racing/Honda to another "fast" time and the eventual win.
"Pomona was definitely a dream race, I guess you could say. After setting the fast time in qualifying and going on to win my heat by four and a half seconds, I took my first official win by seven seconds,'" explained Addison who reigns from Bucyrus, Ohio. "I got off to an early lead with the holeshot and had a clear track to ride my own race. I had everything going for me and I definitely couldn't have done it without all my family, Parkinson Bros. Racing, J&F Construction, and all my other sponsors."
Second behind Addison was the magical Mr. Wells who was hoping to pull a rabbit out of his helmet and come away with the win and the championship, but the fourth place finish by Wyatt Maguire was just enough for him to finish the season with a one point lead and leave Pomona with the title. Third place on the night went to Kyle Johnson which made it a complete podium sweep for the Motorcycle-Superstore.com brigade. Superstore riders Dominic Colindres and Stephen VanderKuur finished 5th and 9th.
