PASCARELLA EXTENDS LEAD FOR AFM #1 PLATE
Dunlop’s Joey Pascarella won his second straight Formula Pacific Race in the second round of AFM Racing during the first weekend of May at Sonoma Raceway. After the weekend, Pascarella owns a 14 point lead in the race for the #1 Plate.
Pascarella’s dominance in the Formula Pacific this season started with a Track Record 1:44.6 during Round 1 racing at Buttonwillow in late March. During this weekend he posted a lap time nearly two seconds faster than any other rider, with a fastest lap of 1:38.4 over the 10-lap race.
Dunlop riders had plenty of success over the weekend, with Joy Higa claiming the Afemme, while Cory Call won the Formula 1 and Dave Raff took first place in the Open Production.
Young Gun Josh Serne proved he’s a name to watch with wins in the 300 Production and 450 Superbike during the weekend, raising his stock heading in to the Moto America KTM 390 Cup. The first race of the KTM 390 Cup is scheduled for May 29-31 at Road America in Wisconsin.
AFM racing returns May 30-31 from Thunderhill Park, with the third leg of the 2015 season.
