KWS Riders Swap Podium Positions at Miller Motorpsorts WERA National
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
4657 Franchise Street
Contact: Michael Godin, Manager North Charleston, SC 29418
Starting into the second half of the WERA National Challange Series at Miller Motorsports Park. Fast lap times from the start of the weekend saw great racing and battles for postions right to the checkered flag. It was also a doubleheader weekend for the National points races, with lots of points up for grabs.
The first race on Saturday was the A Superstock race. The green flag dropped and the riders raced down the long front straightaway battling for poitions going into turn 1. As they came around on the first lap the leader had a started a small gap with Sean Dwyer and Luie Zendajas nose to tail trying to get into the draft. They went at it the whole race with Zendajas Just edging out his team mate to take the second and third spots on the podium. The final race of the day was the WERA Superbike 8 lap race which also saw many of the Masters Of the Mountain riders joining the WERA National regulars for a vary stacked field. The race was going as expected with riders settling into positions until lap 4 when the red flag came out. After a few minutes for clean up, it was decided to have a full restart of the 8 laps. Another great battle for postions continued throughout the race, but lap times started to drop with so many laps on the same tires and track temperature's in the 120's. Dwyer took the checkered flag in sixth postion with Zendajas a few spots back in ninth.
Sunday was a new day with much cooler temperatures and track conditions more favorable for faster lap times. The A Superstock race was first up again. As everyone went out for the sighting lap, large drops of rain started to come down. The race started and again saw a great battle with Dwer and Zendajas battling with each other as well as the leader. With the rain continuing to come down and starting to dampen the track everyone was being a little cautious of how hard to push their motorcycles. Coming onto the front stretch on lap three Dwyer had taken the lead, just as they crossed the finish line the race was red flagged for the weather and called complete. The results reverted back a lap which saw Dwyer taking the second place postion with Zendajas in third. The rain continued to fall even harder which brought out a race delay in order to let it go by and resume racing. With this delay the 8 lap races of the day were shortened to 4 laps. Finally at close to 5:30 the WERA Supebike race went underway. The shortened race was even more of a battle with riders being aggressive to gain positions. Dwyer and Zendajas were able to improve from Saturday with fifth and seventh place finished respectively.
The next stop on the schedule is NOLA, September 14 & 15. Dwyer will be looking to hold onto his 3 point lead in A Superstock while Zendajas will work on his success with the fastest lap from last year's NOLA round to increase his current third place points standings.
Luie Zendejas - "I can't thank Micheal Godin enough for bringing such a well set up bike to this round. My KWS Motorsports, Millennium Technologies, Ridersdiscount.com, Knights Armaments Suzuki GSX-R 1000 was on pace this week. Coming all this way and going home with two podiums is a good way to end the weekend. Special thanks to Mike Fitzgerald (Thermosman Suspension) for the magic set up, and Julio Ruiz of Liquid Sky Sports (liquidskysports.com) for keeping us looking fresh with their top end apparel. Next stop NOLA!!"
Sean Dwyer - "Miller is probably my favorite track on the Wera National schedule, so I was looking forward to this race. We started with the settings that Thermosman had made for last year, and the bike was absolutely on rails. I was able to just concentrate on riding and we ended up improving our pace from last year by 1.5 seconds per lap on basically the same package. It was fun battling with Reese Wacker and Luie Z all weekend, as well as some fast locals who were pushing hard. We ran up front consistently and I'm stoked on the races. I can't thank the team and sponsors enough for giving me such a good bike and getting us out here, also big thanks to Mike and Nick for spinning the wrenches. Im ready for Nola, lets go!"
