Fontana Superbike Results

By George Obradovich, Apr. 05, 2004
Press Release Issued By Team Suzuki

Yoshimura Suzuki's Mat Mladin stormed to his 26th American Superbike win in Saturdays second round at Fontana, California, after leading from start to finish.

"We brought it to the finish and that's all that matters, although it was getting a bit slick at the end" said Mladin after tying with third-placed Miguel Duhamel for the career Superbike wins record.

Mladin and his GSX-R1000 set a pace that was unmatchable and pulled away early, holding his lead at around the three-second mark before steadily forging ahead by as much as 10 seconds at one stage, before backing off in the final laps, concerned more about getting to the finish than margin of victory.

"We got the win, but it wasnt tidy and it wasnt the way I like to do it. I made a couple of little mistakes towards the end when it started to rain, but apart from that, it was okay, said the four-time AMA Superbike Champion.

In a race that saw six Suzukis in the top 10, Eric Bostrom took second well clear of Duhamel and Jake Zemke.

Former Australian and British Superbike star Marty Craggill, making his debut for the Corona Suzuki team, finished eighth ahead of Hooters Suzukis John Haner and Empire Suzukis Opie Caylor.

Mladin aims to become the most successful rider in AMA Superbikes with his 27th win at todays third-round race at the Fontana double header.
