GRANTSVILLE, Utah (June 28, 2016) — The MotoAmerica Superbike Championship of Utah was successful for both Riders Discount/Tuned Racing riders. Bryce Prince not only took two podiums this weekend, but also secured the Superstock 600 championship title. This is Prince’s first national championship.
“I could not be happier with how the weekend in Utah went,” said Prince. “We were able to put the bike on pole position for the third race in a row! I got a terrible start for race one and was not able to catch up to the lead rider. I settled in for second place and was very happy to be on the box again, only needing one point to wrap up the championship. For race two I got off to a much better start, and had a great battle to the line. I drafted past the rider and passed him into turn one with a lap to go. I put my head down to do a good lap, and almost turned my best time of the weekend. I was able to hold him off to the line, to get my seventh victory, and claim the Superstock 600 Championship. To bring home the championship early with a win was great for me. I can’t wait to be back on the track at Laguna! My whole Tuned Racing, Riders Discount, and Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants team has been great to me!”
Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants extends their praise to Prince and the Riders Discount/Tuned Racing team.
“We couldn’t be more impressed or more proud of Bryce and the team’s championship win and partnership this season,” said Eric Reilley, Quicksilver Product Manager. “Congratulations to Mike Pond and the entire team for their major accomplishment.”
Tuned Racing owner Mike Pond is thrilled with how Riders Discount/Tuned Racing has performed this season.
“It still feels surreal, but I am more than proud of the entire team,” said Pond. “We set a plan at the start of the season and it unfolded perfectly due to everyone’s hard work and dedication. These things paired with the best known companies in the industry seemed to make the perfect package that was noticeable at every round. The Tuned Racing, Riders Discount, Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants team paired with Graves Racing Services customer lease bike allowed us to bring home seven wins, 14 podiums, and four pole positions so far this season. I would like to thank the entire team and all of our sponsors for making my dreams a reality!”
Despite five broken bones in his foot, Jason Aguilar also had a successful weekend at Utah Motorsports Campus. Aguilar took fifth in race one and the third spot on the podium alongside his teammate for race two.
“I never thought I would’ve had my best race weekend of the season riding with a broken foot and almost no practice time on Thursday,” said Aguilar. “My team and I got a great set up in very little time and I was able to go fifth in race one and third in race two starting from 13th in class. It was a great weekend for myself and the team. Now I’m looking forward to getting back on my bike at Laguna Seca! Thanks to the team and our sponsors for making this possible!”
