MILLVILLE, New Jersey (May 3, 2016) — Despite a wet weekend at New Jersey Motorsports Park, Riders Discount/Tuned Racing rider Bryce Prince placed first in race one and finished fifth in race two for the Superstock 600 class. Prince still leads the Superstock 600 Championship with 81 points after the race weekend.
“New Jersey was a very difficult weekend for everyone,” said Prince. “On Friday we had horrible conditions, but I was able to get 12 laps in to get a feel for the track. We made some suspension changes and were ready for Saturday. For qualifying the track was cold and slick, but it was dry. Saturday morning we were able to get up to pace quickly and secure the pole position. We made some small changes to the bike for race one; they were not perfect but we were able to edge out the competition and gap the rest of the field to take home our second win of the season. Sunday morning was extremely rainy and cold; I only got 3 laps in before I fell down, and my mistake caused us to have no wet setup time. We made some changes before the race and were able to make the bike better, but not as good as the competition. We rode home a solid fifth place finish, collected some valuable points, and are still in the championship lead. We’re ready to head to Virginia in two weeks!”
Jason Aguilar’s bad luck followed him to New Jersey where he was pitted due to a mechanical issue for a portion of race one, leaving him to finish in 14th place. Aguilar placed 13th in race two.
