Kennesaw, Georgia (March 16th, 2010)- Graves Motorsports showed up to WERA’s first endurance racing event of 2010 this past weekend with a dynamic trackside presence of riders, teams and technical support staff.
Team Zyvax fresh from the recent signing of Ben Bostrom and Chris Clark to ride Graves Motorsports supported Yamaha R1 race bikes in the WERA series, wasted no time placing themselves on the podium’s top step! Ben and Chris performed flawlessly; the pair of riders brought the Team Zyvax Yamaha R1 to a commanding 9 lap lead by the end of the 4 hour endurance race to take the victory! In a notable appearance, Zyvax Yamaha R6 riders Dane Westby and Clinton Seller came through for a 3rd place finish after the riders moved to a backup bike early in the race.
Benny “Benito” Solis on his Graves Motorsports Yamaha R6 fought a hard battle with a five rider pack for 12 laps, finishing in 1st place. This was the 16 year old rider’s season opener as a Team Graves Motorsports rider! Benny will be racing at all of the 2010 WERA rounds on the Graves Motorsports YZF-R6.
WERA Racing’s next round resumes April 10-11, 2010 at the Talladega Gran Prix Raceway in Munford, Alabama.
