Saddlemen Road Race Rookie of the Year
Daytona Beach, FL
March 17
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 22, 2012) - In only his third career AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike start,Joey Pascarellaof Vacaville, California and the Project 1 Atlanta/March of Dimes team won the 71st DAYTONA® 200 in a classic race that saw the drama build until the very end of the 57 laps. Pascarella was able to do something that was rather rare on that last lap around Daytona International Speedway's 3.51-mile traditional motorcycle course - he was able to hold the lead despite having three riders on the tail of his No. 52 Yamaha YZF-R6, each of them ready and willing to draft past the 19-year-old rider.

The three-rider pack that finished just 0.048 seconds behind Pascarella was full of stout competition, led by eventual second-place finisherJason DiSalvo(No. 9 Latus Motors Racing Triumph Daytona 675).Cameron Beaubier(No. 6 Y.E.S. Graves Motorsports Yamaha YZF-R6) narrowly edged out this year's pole position winner,Martin Cardenas(No. 36 GEICO Suzuki GSX-R600), at the line to take the final podium spot.

Jake Gagne (No. 132 RoadRace Factory/Red Bull Yamaha YZF-R6) had never raced the DAYTONA® 200 before but fought with experienced veterans Zemke and Hayden throughout the race. Gagne and his new team finished eighth, and the rising star has grabbed an early lead in the Saddlemen Rookie of the Year award program. The $5,000 year-end award will go to the eligible rookie rider who earns the most points in the GoPro Daytona SportBike rider championship.
