Kawasaki Racers to Vir Supersport Race
Monster Energy Kawasaki racers Roger Hayden and Jamie Hacking are preparing to win the 2007 Pro Honda Oils Supersport Championship offered by Shoei this Sunday at Virginia International Raceway.
Let’s see what they have to say about the future race!
“It should be a great race at VIR. I know me and Jamie have a lot at stake at the race and now Josh (Hayes) feels like he has nothing to lose and will be looking to go out winning races. And that’s just the top three guys. On any given weekend there’s three or four other guys who could step up and challenge for the win. So many things could happen, but I’m just focused on doing what it takes to win this championship. It’s important to me and the team.”
Hayden is focusing more on its competitors as he has scored Supersport victories at the picturesque, following circuit in Alton and he is now very confident in his capabilities.
“I’m 13 points down to Rog so the equation is simple to me. I need to win the race, it’s that simple. I had a great race at VIR last year, but there really wasn’t much pressure on since I nearly had the championship wrapped up. Now it’s a different story. It’s all on the line there, as far as getting close enough to have a shot at the championship, but as a racer you’ve got to like those kinds of challenges.”
Hacking, who took the win last year after a race long battle with M4 EMGO Suzuki teammates Geoff May and Michael Barnes, seems determined to win the race so we have a show to enjoy this weekend.
