Two, One, and Done
MILLVILLE, New Jersey (Sept. 13, 2016)
The 2016 MotoAmerica Superstock 600 season came to a close for Quicksilver Riders Discount/Tuned Racing at New Jersey Motorsports Park on Sunday. Rider Bryce Prince finished second in race one and took first in race two. Prince had an incredible season, taking a total of nine wins in addition to the championship title.
“New Jersey was a very up and down weekend for us,” said Prince. “I was able to secure the pole position but had a huge crash at the end of qualifying which really messed up the bike. We got the bike back together in time for race one on Saturday and were able to come home with second place. It was a tough race for me as I was a little banged up, but I was very happy to be on the podium. I felt much better Sunday for race two; we got a good start and I was first going into turn one. I was able to gap the field to win the last race of the season by five seconds. I am very pleased to finish the season on top of the podium, and I cannot thank my crew enough for all of their support this year. We are very excited to see what next year has in store! I want to give a special thanks to all of our sponsors, especially Tuned Racing, Riders Discount, Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants, Graves Motorsports, and everyone else for a great season!”
Rider Jason Aguilar did not finish either race due to mechanical issues. Despite a challenging season, Aguilar is focusing on recovering and looking forward to next year.
“It has been a season of great highs and pretty low lows,” said Aguilar. “We ended the season on a low after having bike issues in qualifying and the races. My foot also isn’t back to normal yet after the two surgeries. It hurt worse riding this weekend than the other weekends prior. I need to get myself healthy again for next season and we will be back strong. It has been great working with new sponsors this year and all of the ones that have supported us since the first pro season. I believe this is just the start of something great; we’ll see everyone in 2017!”
