Shoemaker, rider of the #55 Bonneville Performance / Castrol / Triumph Bonneville, had his best result of the season at the last race, finishing in 10th place, while Robinson has piloted the #44 Latus Motors Racing / Castrol / Triumph Bonneville to a top ten finish in all but two races this season. Shoemaker and Robinson currently sit in 13th and 6th, respectively, in the GNC1 point standings.

“I really enjoy half-miles and can’t wait to get back on the Bonneville Performance / Castrol / Triumph Bonneville after this break,” said Jake Shoemaker. “I’ve focused on my training quite a bit and the team has made some changes to the bike, so I’m expecting to get a good result.”

As part of its outreach initiative, VETMotorsports will embed Cpl. Daniel M. and Spc. Michael W. with the Bonneville Performance team. Through Castrol’s VETMotorsports Performance Match Fund, the on-track performance of Triumph teams in both Flat Track and MotoAmerica competition has earned VETMotorpsports $5,950 in bonuses thus far this season.

Kenny Riedmann rode his #1 plated Riedmann Management / GE Capital / Castrol / Triumph Daytona 675R to his third consecutive Pro Sport Bike victory at Atlantic Motorsport Park for the fifth round of the Canadian Superbike Championship. The win puts Riedmann in the lead of the championship standings with two races remaining on the schedule.
