AFM Round 7 at Infineon

The European Motorcycle Accessories Formula Pacific race at Infineon Raceway this past weekend had no shortage of action and drama, with a red flag bringing the action to a halt less than a minute after the start. According to witnesses, it all started to unfold when the pack reached the top of the hill, where Michael Earnest of Pacific Tracktime highsided. According to witnesses, Earnest’s GSX-R1000 spit him off in Turn 3A, landing on top of him as he slid down the short chute into Turn 4. When the dust settled, Earnest refused the ambulance ride and remounted his damaged bike, returning to the pits where his crew attempted to make the necessary repairs. With the clock ticking, David Sadowski Jr – son of former Daytona 200 winner and professional commentator Dave Sadowski – offered Earnest his 2006 Yamaha R6, which Earnest graciously accepted just in time for the restart.

When the green flag dropped, James Randolph jumped out to an early lead on his Cycle Pro GSX-R1000, pulling away from the pack early as he looked for a repeat of his dominating performance in the previous round. Riding his Arclight Suzuki GSX-R1000, defending Formula Pacific champion Dave Stanton quickly worked his way into second in pursuit of Randolph, while Earnest continued to drop positions on the unfamiliar R6, fighting the pain from what many believed to be a fractured leg as he attempted to salvage points. In the end, Randolph’s early lead proved to be too much for Stanton, as Randolph went on to take his second straight Formula Pacific victory. Stanton crossed the line in second with David Bell in third.

“That was the plan from the get go – I just wanted to give it all I could on the first lap, and see if I could get a gap,” stated Randolph from the winners circle. “I was able to do it, and that let me just cruise and have a good time from there. A lot of people helped make this happen – if Zenzo from Cycle Pro, Josh from Tire Shark (the trackside Pirelli distributor), and my dad weren’t helping me out, I definitely wouldn’t be here!”

Randolph had another strong performance in GP Frame and Wheel Open Superbike race later in the day, breaking away early from a heated five-rider battle for second between Martin Szwarc, Corey Sarros, David Bell, Rob Mesa, and Argentinean Supermoto Champion Leonardo Bagnis. At the checkered flag, Randolph crossed the line and took his second win of the day, with Szwarc in second and Sarros third.

Despite an injured foot, Stanton took a decisive win in the Take It 2 The Track Open Production race, crossing the line three seconds ahead of the R1 ridden by Leonardo Bagnis. Corey Sarros crossed the line in third, but was later disqualified for an illegal master cylinder.

“It was a rough weekend,” explained Stanton. “Thursday night, when I was loading my toolbox, I basically dropped it on my foot and had to go to the hospital. I got six stitches, returned home and finished loading at around 11 PM – it was a nightmare. I’m just really glad it’s over!”

Bobby Fong put in a pair of strong performances at Infineon, taking victories in both 600 classes for the second straight time this season on his Net Moto Racing Yamaha R6. Also doing the double was Garry Combs, winning both the Scuderia West Formula 1 race as well as the 750 Superbike race.

“Parriott had a big lead early in 750 Superbike – I did my best laps of the day when I chased him down, getting into the 1:39s,” Combs explained afterwards. “That win really helped me out, I think Robert Campbell and I should be really close in the points now. In Formula 1, fortunately Gulbransen was on his little bike, so we were able to drop the hammer on him with the Matsushima Performance horsepower for the first time this year. I guess he had a little battle with Campbell, which let me gap him. Terry from Dunlop hooked me up with a great new rear tire, letting me go half a second a lap faster than I did last month! Even though I crashed in Formula 1 trying to outbrake Parriott into Turn 11 – which was really just a dumb move on my part – I had a great weekend! I'm sick of these twins though - if it has less than four cylinders and isn't from Japan, I hate it!”

Parriott had an excellent weekend as well, showing the field as well as the Northern California motorcycle community the capabilities of his San Jose BMW R1200S. In the Suzuki of Oakland 750 Production race, Parriott came out on top of a heated battle with Garry Combs, which ended with Combs lowsiding in the last turn of the last lap while attempting a Hail Mary outside pass to take the lead. Earlier in the day, Parriott took the win in the Desmoto Sport Open Twins race after points leader Eric Gulbransen dropped out of the race early with mechanical problems. Craig McLean finished crossed the line in second, with Patrick Blackburn of Trackside Moto in third.

“Gary was able to motor me in Formula 1, but I could get him back with drive out of 8A and on the brakes into 9,” said Parriott. “That’s where this BMW works really well – at the top of 8A, I can just keep it pinned, while the other guys have to let their bikes settle. I was able to get Combs back into 9, then I saw him trying to go by me into 11. All I could think was ‘Dude, I’m braking as hard as I can – you ain’t gonna make that!’ And sure enough, he was on the ground – I hope I didn’t jinx him! I was banging cylinder heads off of the curb in 4, and actually cracked the engine cover in 8. If you set the engine down too hard on these things, the metal can’t really take it!”

A few notable winning streaks were also broken this past weekend at Infineon. In the Teresa McKinney Realtor Formula 40 race, John “JT” Turmell took the win on his GSX-R1000, bringing the five-race winning stream of Zoom Zoom Trackdays head instructor Shawn Reilly to a close. In the Kilowatt Bar 250 Superbike race, Andrew Duafala took the win with points leader Shawn Herrera finishing second, ending Herrera’s perfect season.

The Zoom Zoom Trackdays Formula 4 race had a bit of a chaotic start, with David Civiello highsiding out of the lead in Turn 9A early in the race. The crash also claimed the Spears Racing SV650 of David Raff, who had no option but to go right over Civiello. While both riders walked away unharmed, the melee gave Tom Dorsey the chance he needed to break away at the front on his Twin Works Factory SV650, but it wasn’t enough as points leader Kurt Spencer eventually closed the gap and made the pass on his own Twin Works Factory SV650 before taking the win. Dorsey came back later in the day in the 650 Twins race, taking the win after successfully executing a pass on Spencer in the last turn on the last lap.

“I had the lead for seven laps in 650 Twins, when I suddenly saw Kurt come underneath me into 7,” said Dorsey. “We came up on lappers in 9, and Kurt was kinda stuck. That let me set up for a good drive out, which let me get him on the brakes into 11. The whole time, I was just thinking to myself, ‘Oh please, let’s just hold onto this lead!’ It was a great weekend, as we had a Twin Works Factory team sweep in Formula 1 and 650 Twins. We also took the win in the 600 class in the 4 Hour – on an SV650!”

In the annual AFM 4-Hour endurance race, it was the Trackside Moto team of Cory Call and Patrick Blackburn who took the 750 class win as well as the overall win, completing 127 laps on a Ducati 999. Second place in the 750 and the overall classes went to the San Jose BMW team of Brian Parriott and Tom Montano, who completed 125 laps on a BMW R1200S. Despite being recognized by many as a dying class, the 750 class had the deepest field in the race, which counted for five of the top six in the overall.

“We had the bike set up that morning in practice, and did some really good laptimes,” said Call. “We just tried to stay consistent, keeping pace with everyone else. We did the whole race on one set of tires, so the Dunlops really worked out well! All the practice we’ve been getting with Pacific Tracktime has helped too. That was my first time on the bike yesterday – those Ducatis have some good torque! Usually ‘Ducati’ and ‘Endurance Racing’ don’t really go together, but we got it to last at least four hours yesterday. That was fun!”

The final round of the 2006 AFM season is scheduled to take place on October 22nd at Buttonwillow.

Congrats on the great weekend - the Net Moto crew had a great weekend out there, with Carman's Top 3 and the Endurance Race finish. And thanks again for the great lunch!

Was that cool having Sadowski up there commentating or what?
