Perfect weather and a massive turnout for the annual WERA Cycle Jam at Road Atlanta saw Canadian Dan Kruger convert a Pole Position into 5 wins throughout the weekend. He had to settle for a 2nd in the second Superbike National race on Sunday as he gave up the lead on lap 2 to a hard charging Taylor Knapp. Dan also teamed up with Moto America regular Jason Waters to win the 4 Hour Relay Endurance race earlier on the weekend and the duo managed more laps than all other classes entered. Dan now has a commanding lead in both the AMA/WERA National Superbike Championship as well as the National Superstock Championship as he aims to take back-to-back titles.
The weekend was not without incidents with heavy winds, a massive air fence fire, and multiple red flags throughout the weekend. “Our team worked really well this past weekend. We had already tested at Road Atlanta last month, so the bikes were basically set up from the get-go. We had so much fun doing the Endurance race and want to thank N2 and WERA for putting on a great event. We also want to remind everyone to donate to the Roadracing World Airfence Fund.
