AMA: 2009 Infineon test day two results

Bostrom tops timesheets again

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Apr. 22, 2009
Ben Bostrom set the fastest lap time for the second day in a row at the official AMA Pro Racing test at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif.

The factory Yamaha rider was faster than any other American Superbike racer on day one of the April 20-21 test, and trimmed over half a second off his time on day two to again lead all riders.

Bostrom’s familiarity with the track may have given him an advantage.

Ben Bostrom was faster than the Suzukis at the test but can he keep it up on race day?“It’s one of my favorite tracks in the world and it’s my old stomping grounds,” says Bostrom, a graduate of nearby Petaluma High School. “The layout is almost like two of the hardest tracks put together, and it’s a great place to test and get ready for the rest of the season.”

American Superbike series leader Mat Mladin also showed some improvement, running 0.68 seconds faster on his second day on the 2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000. Mladin wasn’t the fastest Gixxer on day two however, as he was edged out by his Rockstar Makita Suzuki teammate Blake Young.

Attack Kawasaki’s Jamie Hacking posted the fastest Daytona Sportbike time for the second day in a row though he was only 0.1 seconds faster on day two. Graves Yamaha’s Josh Herrin was second fastest while Steve Rapp was third for Bazzaz Yamaha.
