In a final farewell to Palm Beach International Raceway, PanAmerican SuperBike held round four of their 2022 season at PBIR. We had some old faces and new faces on the grid for the last road race to ever be held at PBIR.
Our big winner from this round was Maximiliano Gerardo with PDR Motorsports. Max repeated his round three performance with race wins in the all four of his races: SuperStock 1000 Grande Corsa, SuperStock 1000 Sprint, SUNOCO SuperBike 1000 Grande Corsa, and SUNOCO SuperBike 1000 Sprint. After missing the opening round, Max has managed to catapult himself into twelve position in the overall Expert Championship.
Alex Arango with Top Pro Motorsports is the PanAmerican Superbike defending Overall Expert Champion. He finished the weekend with one race win and three second place finishes to move into first place in the Overall Expert Championship over Christian Miranda who is still recovering from his massive highside at the Daytona 200.
Carlos Salvatierra Jr is leading the next generation of racers. He found success in 2021 racing in the 300 class. The 2022 season is his first year in the 600 class. In round four, he continued his dominance with another four race wins in the SuperStock 600 Grande Corsa, SuperStock 600 Sprint, SUNOCO SuperBike 600 Grande Corsa, and SUNOCO SuperBike 600 Sprint.
Isaac Woodworth is part of our newest group of young guns making their presence felt on the track. In his first season, Isaac has six podium finishes in the SuperStreet 300 class. In round four, he found his way to the front in the SuperStreet 300 Grande Corsa for his first career race win! In the afternoon, he returned to the track to win the SuperStreet 300 Sprint. During that sprint race, he put in a lap of 1:30.762, which was just 0.119 seconds off the track record. After this weekend’s performance, Isaac moves into third place in the Overall Amateur Championship.
Trailing Isaac by two points in the Overall Amateur Championship is Chase Morano. Chase has been on fire since the start of the season with podium finishes every round. In round four, he was able to replicate his success from rounds two and three with another three race wins. It’s not just the wins that have been impressing the paddock. Chase has dropped two seconds from his best time at PBIR to earn him the SUNOCO SuperBike 1000 Amateur lap record at PBIR!
Paul Vance and JM Padron continue their rivalry in the Formula Twin and Euro Light classes. Paul took the race wins in the Formula Twin and Euro Light Grande Corsa races. JM returned the favor with wins in the Formula Twin and Euro Light Sprint races.
In the Formula 40 600, teammates Maykel Peres and Yeysey Marrero from +Power Moto Racing put on a show. From the start of the race, these two were racing nose to tail the entire race. Maykel was barely able to beat Yeysey to the checker flag by 0.253 seconds.
Round four was full of excitement and amazing performances by everyone. Congratulations to all the racers. Now as the sun has set on this past weekend, we turn our attention north. PanAmerican SuperBike will be at Carolina Motorsports Park on May 13 – 15 for round five of our 2022 season. For northern racers, here is the chance to experience the future of motorcycle club racing!
PanAmerican Superbike would like to thank our 2022 sponsors for their continued support!
