DUNLOP WINS AGAIN…AND AGAIN…AND AGAIN AT NEW JERSEY MOTORSPORTS PARK
Six different Dunlop riders combined to win a whopping 18 races at New Jersey Motorsports Park over the September 6-7 weekend, paced by Mark Miller Jr with six wins and Anthony Mazziotto with five. Miller and Mazziotto both paraded to the winners circle while riding Dunlop’s new GP-A Pro tires this weekend. Mazziotto earned his five wins after he switched to Dunlop GP-A Pro from a competing brand.
Dunlop riders swept the podium in the Expert SuperBike Unlimited and placed 1-2 in the Expert GTL, Expert SuperSport, and Expert Formula 40 races.
“Dunlop tires keep proving they can win on any race track,” Dunlop/Race Tire Service President Steve Brubaker said. “Last weekend it was five riders in California with wins. This weekend it was six riders in New Jersey and in every weight class – Heavyweight, Middleweight, Lightweight. Whether it’s a KR451 slick or GP-A PRO, our riders are finding ways to win every weekend.”
Miller claimed his wins in the Expert SuperBike Heavyweight, Expert SuperSport Heavyweight, Expert SuperBike Middleweight, Expert SuperSport Middleweight, Expert Grand Middleweight, and Expert GTU races.
Scott Harwell and Frank Babuska Jr rode Dunlop KR451 Slicks to a combined five wins and seven podium appearances over the weekend. Harwell won the Expert SuperBike Unlimited, Expert AMA SuperBike 1000, and Expert GTO races and placed second to fellow Dunlop rider Jon Couch in the Expert Formula 40 race. Babuska won the Expert SuperSport Unlimited and the Expert Grand Prix Unlimited and claimed second place behind Harwell in the Expert SuperBike Unlimited.
Dave Hanig earned Dunlop’s other win on the weekend, coming in first place in the Expert ThunderBike race. Hanig also finished second in the Expert GTL, behind Mazziotto’s winning ride.
