Sunnyvale, Calif., April 28, 2022 – Josh Herrin (Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati NYC) created the perfect debut for the Ducati Panigale V2 in MotoAmerica Supersport competition, qualifying on pole position and racing to two resounding victories in front of many Georgia-based family and friends.
Herrin’s bright red Panigale was a sight to see as the former MotoAmerica Supersport Champion laid waste to the hordes of four-cylinder Supersport machinery.
His race on victory margin was 3.2 seconds, yet Herrin wasn’t satisfied and rocketed off the start to open up a near 0.7 second lead by the exit of turn one. It was a margin he extended to 4.9 seconds at the flag over Suzuki’s Sam Lochoff, crossing the line with a trademark stand up wheelie.
After two races and two wins, Herrin leads the 2022 MotoAmerica Supersport Championship standings on 50 points from Lochoff on 40 and Yamaha’s Rocco Landers on 29.
