ALEX DUMAS WINS AT SONOMA RACEWAY WHILE BOBBY FONG INCREASES HIS POINTS LEAD FOR TEAM HAMMER AND DOMINO RACING!Team Hammer scored big at Sonoma Raceway on Sunday, leaving the Northern Californian circuit with first-, second-, and third-place MotoAmerica trophies to add to the squad's extensive hardware collection. Twins Cup pilots Alex Dumas and Joseph Blasius closed out the weekend in supreme fashion, producing a double podium in the final race of the weekend. Dumas put the Roadracing World Young Guns Suzuki SV650 on top of the podium following a 12.521-second blowout victory. The youngster appeared destined for a race-long scrap for the win, but his primary opponent developed a mechanical problem early and Dumas promptly set sail at the front. Dumas now trails the Twins Cup championship lead by a single point. "I had so much fun," he said. "I saw a puff of smoke from the bike in front of me and then saw him pull off track. I just took home the win, and I'm really happy." Blasius more than earned his first MotoAmerica podium by finishing third. He was forced off course by another rider while battling over second, and had to fight hard just to stay upright during his off-course excursion. Despite dropping to fifth place and several seconds back, he channeled his anger at the incident, transformed it into sheer speed, and ran the group back down.He looked likely to deliver Team Hammer a 1-2 result, but his last-lap plans were foiled by an unfortunate run-in with a lapper who blocked him a few corners from the finish.After the race Blasius said of his off-track detour, "The door was shut on me, and I had to brake check myself. He almost hit my front tire. I went all the way out by the Airfence and almost lost the front moto-crossing it out there. At that point, I just got really mad and started super-late-braking in every corner. Sure enough, I started catching back up, and was like, 'I think I can do this!'"Team Hammer gave me a great bike today. I'm so excited to be on the podium -- I've been wanting this all year."Meanwhile, M4 ECSTAR Suzuki's Bobby Fong extended his MotoAmerica Supersport championship points lead with yet another strong, consistent, and smart ride. Just as on Saturday, the Californian sprinted out into an early lead before being passed for first approximately a third of the way in.Fong refused to give in, throwing down the fastest lap of the race (1:38.512) aboard his GSX-R600 racebike on lap 11 of 19 while in pursuit. Ultimately, however, Fong thought better of it, and accepted second-place points since his chief title rival was several positions back.The result was Fong's ninth top-two finish of the season, and his seventh in succession, giving him a 20-point advantage with six races left to decide the 2019 MotoAmerica Supersport Championship."I'm really happy about how the weekend went," Fong said. "We learned a lot, and I'm still building with the team. It was a good race today, but it was strange. This morning in the warm-up session, the track had superior grip, but then the temperatures went up and when I got out there for the race, I couldn't do the times. "When I was passed for the lead, I just tried to latch on. I actually felt like I was catching a little bit, but I was so on the limit it was too risky. I decided to think about the bigger picture and back it down to collect my points."Sean Dylan Kelly suffered a double-whammy as a result of Saturday's opening-lap incident when he was punted off the track and hit a tire wall. To add to his Race 1 disappointment, Kelly was forced to start from the very back of the 25-rider grid, with Sunday's start positions based on Saturday's best times in the race. Since Kelly wasn't able to complete a lap before being loaded in an ambulance and taken to the medical center, he found himself facing a steep climb in Race 2. He was fortunate to be able to start at all, after being transported to a local trauma center where a cut on his chin was stitched up and he was scanned and checked for internal injuries. Once treated and released, he passed a MotoAmerica concussion test at the track Sunday morning, was quick in the warm-up session, and gridded up for the race in last place.Kelly made the most of the challenge, storming up through the field on his M4 ECSTAR Suzuki GSX-R600, matching the lap times of the leaders and fighting all the way up to sixth position, with a top-five finish in his sights when he took the checkered flag.Superbike runner Jake Lewis closed out a weekend to forget with a second DNF. He again got an outstanding start aboard the team's fire-breathing GSX-R1000R, holding down fourth position early.However, the former Superbike Rookie of the Year crashed out of fourth while working lap three, leaving him to wonder what might have been if things had gone just a bit differently in Sonoma. "I got a really good start again and tried to hang on to the front three guys but crashed on lap three while giving it my all. It feels nice to be making progress with the team and actually get back up to competitive speed. I can't wait for the next race!" Team Hammer is now looking forward to the next round of the 2019 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship season, August 23-25 at Pittsburgh International Race Complex. ...

DOMINATING BOBBY FONG WINS TEAM HAMMER'S 75TH Domino Racing sponsored M4 ECSTAR Suzuki's Bobby Fong concluded the combined WorldSBK/MotoAmerica Superbike weekend at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in spectacular fashion with a wire-to-wire victory in a one-sided MotoAmerica Supersport race.Fong sprinted into the lead from the start and never looked back. The Californian shot to an immediate gap on the opening lap as he hustled his GSX-R600 racebike around the undulating circuit and then proceeded to apply the pressure on his pursuers from the front with his sheer pace. Fong's nearest rival crashed out while in pursuit, clearing the way for a blowout victory. Fong worked up a four-second advantage before easing his way to a 1.603-second margin of victory at the flag.The win was Fong's fourth of the season and gave him an 18-point lead in the MotoAmerica Supersport championship standings.The victory also marked the team's 75th AMA Pro and MotoAmerica race win. Fong said, "Honestly, I had one of the best bikes out there -- again -- thanks to my M4 ECSTAR Suzuki team. It's good to get the win for Suzuki, I know they wanted it here at Laguna Seca, one of their home races. "We've got the championship lead now, so we've just got to keep the ball rolling as we move on to my home round at Sonoma Raceway in a month's time." Teenager Sean Dylan Kelly continued to impress in his rookie season of racing in MotoAmerica. The second M4 ECSTAR Suzuki Supersport pilot left the grid in seventh at the start of the 19-lap race, and gradually worked his way into fourth position. Meanwhile in Superbike, Jake Lewis followed up his Saturday top-five with an eighth-place ride in Sunday's race aboard his M4 ECSTAR Suzuki GSX-R1000. Lewis got away in his qualifying position of seventh and held that spot over the race's opening half before solidifying eighth in what was ultimately a relatively uneventful ride. The 2019 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship will resume in just under a month as the series arrives at Sonoma Raceway on August 10-11. ... See MoreSee Less

G2 Sponsored Landon Wolfe wins again at Round 8 of the GNCC series in Snowshoe, West Virginia. "This race is known to be one of the toughest races of the year and it normally never disappoints. We had perfect weather almost all weekend which is very rare for Snowshoe but it made for fairly good conditions. I jumped off to another good start grabbing the holeshot on the paved road start. There was an incredible amount of water on the track which is typical but I picked my way through the first lap gently to prevent any mistakes. After the first lap I kicked it up a notch and got myself a comfy lead by the end of the second lap which is when I pulled in for fuel and a fresh set of goggles. After my pit I was able to run a smooth race and maintain my lead the entire time to bring home another win for the year and to continue to extend my points lead. We only have one more race before summer so we are preparing our best to head into break on a good note. G2 is proud to be the handguard and throttle of choice for Landon! ... See MoreSee Less

Barnes is currently in 2nd place in the series points standings."Saturday it rained a lot and it was calling for it all day Sunday. While heading to the first test of the day the rain began to come down off and on all day. I had a good first and second test and was only a little time down on the 1st one. In the 3rd test of the day, I had a pretty good get off on a pretty fast off camber down hill that cost me a lot of time. Going into the last 3 tests of the day I knew I had to ride smooth and fast if I wanted to be there at the end. I was able to win the last two test and take the win in the Pro 2 class and take 3rd overall!
