Carolina Motorsports Park
May 14, 15 2022
PanAmSBK made their debut at Carolina Motorsports Park on May 14th and 15th for Round Five of the PanAmerican Superbike 2022 championship.
While this track was a new experience for many of the PanAmSBK paddock, Christian Miranda found himself back on familiar grounds, the top of the podium. After missing round 4 due to injury from his infamous highside on the Daytona banking, Christian found success in his return with three race wins in the SuperStock 600 Grande Corsa, Sunoco SuperBike 600 Grande Corsa, and Sunoco SuperBike 600 Sprint races. Bruno Silva was able to prevent Christian from sweeping the 600 class races by beating him to the finish line by 0.175 second in the SuperStock 600 Sprint.
In a weekend of many firsts, Chyler Weatherford had a breakthrough round with his first win as an Expert. Chyler took the holeshot off the start and was able to fight off all challenges from Alejandro Nieves lap after lap. At the checker, Chyle was able to hold off Alejandro by 0.298 for his first race win as an Expert [in SuperBike 1000].
The 600’s and 1000’s were not the only one able to put on an exciting show [for] the audience. The SuperStreet 300 sprint race found the top three Amateur racers battling from the start to the finish. On the starting grid, Eduardo Aguayo was in grid spot three, Isaac Woodward was in grid spot five, and Sasha Riguard was in grid spot seven. By the end of the first lap, these three were racing nose to tail, with Isaac leading the trio. While the three racers were trading positions all around the track, Isaac seemed to have the best drive out of the last corner and used that draft to lead into Turn One. On the final lap, Isaac was leading the trio into the final corner. Eduardo had a great drive in the previous corner that allowed him to take the lead, but he went just slightly wide. This opened the door for Isaac to take with win by 0.419 seconds with only 0.714 seconds separating first and third place.
Next month, PanAmerican SuperBike makes their return to Roebling Road Raceway on June 18th & 19th.
