Rider Michael Leon was awarded trophies for first overall in the Pro Superbike class, third overall in Pro 600 and third overall in Master Open. 

As well, Leon was proud to receive special awards voted by the RACE staff, pit crews and other racers. He received the Tony Marchese Memorial Award, which is presented to the Pro Privateer Competitor judged to be the best appearing rider / machine combination of the season. Leon previously received the award in 2010.

Leon’s tuner Carlos Carrascosa was awarded the John Nelson / Danny Rae Tuning Achievement Award in recognition for his efforts preparing the team’s CBR600RR all season.
