DANVILLE, Virginia (May 17, 2016) — Riders Discount/Tuned Racing had a successful weekend at Virginia International Raceway. Rider Bryce Prince finished third in the challenging conditions of Superstock 600 race one. Race two saw Prince finish at the top of the podium while teammate Jason Aguilar took the third spot on the podium. Prince now carries a 33 point lead to the next round of the Superstock 600 Championship.
“Overall we had a great weekend at VIR,” said Prince. “The weekend started out tough as we qualified fourth. The first race was very tricky as it started pouring rain when we went out for the sighting lap. We made the right decision to stick with dry tires and halfway through the race we were in the lead. I decided to take it easy with five laps to go, and we were able to manage a third place finish. We made a few small changes for race two and really got the bike working well. We were able to take the lead by lap five and continued for the remainder of the race, taking the win by .006 of a second. I couldn’t be happier with how the weekend went. My bike is working great and I can’t thank my team enough for all of the help and support!”
“We had a great weekend at Virginia International Raceway for round three of our season,” said Aguilar. “Our gremlins seemed to continue from the last few rounds with a couple issues in qualifying, but I was confident in our race pace. My team and I were able to get a great suspension setup and despite being close to last off the start, I fought the hardest I ever have to make it up to third with the fastest lap of my class. It was a great double podium for the team and I was very happy to see my teammate take the win. I can’t thank the whole team enough for sticking by me through the tough times and I’m really looking forward to Road America.”
