KWS Motorsports Riders continue success at WERA Cycle Jam
Round 3 of the WERA National series brought us to Road Atlanta for a long weekend of racing. Thursday practice was hindered with continuous rain and only allowed a few laps around the track in the afternoon. Luie Zendajas and Sean Dywer used the Friday WERA Endurance race to get up to speed and be ready 2 days of racing to follow. The beautiful weather stayed with us for Saturday's 6 lap Sportsman races.
First up was the A Superstock race which was the start of many front running battles for the podium spots. James Dellinger finished in fourth place with Luie right on his tail to finish in the fifth spot. KWS Veteran Rider Scott Carpenter came in tenth. Sean pulled out of the race after he heard a noise on his bike, later to find out an exhaust spring broke and allowed one of the headers to come out of place. With the track conditions improving and the heat climbing, the riders headed out for the F1 race. Dwyer put his head down to make up for the A Superstock race was able to move into second place with Luie right on his tail this time at the checkered flag. Scott rounded out the top ten. In the Senior Superbike race Scott finally reached the podium with a third place. The last race of the day was A Superbike which continued to see great racing all the way to the checkered flag. Sean took his first win of the Weekend with James in fifth and Scott coming in ninth. Luie had decided to sit out the last race to conserve himself for the nationals on Sunday.
Sundays WERA National races started with another day of great weather, but it was going to be close at the end of the day with a storm front a few hours away. The racing was even better than the previous day with faster times and more riders battling for podium positions. The first race of the afternoon was the 8 lap Open Superstock. With better grid positions based on points virtually all of the fast guys were on the first few rows which made which saw very close racing for the half of the race until the leaders were able to stretch out a lead. Sean was again on the podium with a second place with Luie just missing out in fourth place. James was able to hang on to an eighth position.
Just as race nine got underway, we got our first bit of rain for the day. There was a small delay in the racing to allow the track to dry out, but all of the races were then shortened to try and get them all in before the real weather arrived. So just as we were getting ready to got out for the now eight lap Open Superbike race, it started raining again. Which in turn created a mad scramble in the pits to set the bikes up for a now rain race. Then, just as earlier in the day, the rain stopped and we then had another mad scramble to go back to our dry setup's. THe race got underway with dark clouds getting closer and the temperature dropping. The threat of an on coming downpour seemed to encourage the riders to push themselves even harder as the racing was even closer till the end than the previous races for the weekend. Sean and Luie crossed the finish line in second and third place respectively with James again landing an eighth place position. The rain finally started coming down just as the riders were coming up for the podium presentation.
Luie Zendejas - "This past weekends Road Atlanta Cycle Jam were a big success for us. My Crew chief Mike Godin did an incredible job as always building me a super fast reliable KWS Motorsports GSX-R 1000. It was working perfect from day one and was able to just concentrate on getting to pace, and showed results in a podium finish in the WERA Superbike race. Miller is the next stop and the whole team goes pretty good there so it should be a good show! A big thanks to Icebox Cryotherapy for getting us treated during the weekend, it really helped with body recovery after a long day at the track. And all my Sponsors Dunlop tires, Ridersdiscount.com, Knight's Armaments, KWS Motorsports, Millennium Technologies, Ballistic Batteries, Storm Endurance, and Arai helmets."
Sean Dwyer - "What a killer weekend. Road Atlanta seems to produce close racing, and I really enjoy the track. Thermosman has my chassis absolutely on rails and that has my confidence going for sure. We battled at the front all weekend and had some great battles with some pretty epic passes, racing with some real fast guys. I'm pumped to be leading the points in WERA Superbike and only one point back in A Superstock at this point because the rest of the tracks are ones we go pretty well at. Big thanks to Godin and KWS for giving us killer horsepower, Eric and Dani, Dunlop Tires for giving us the best tires for all the different conditions, Millennium Technologies, Ballistic Batteries, Motul, Leo Vince, Zero Gravity, Pit-Bull.
