BREA, CA – August 10, 2020 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Altus Motorsports rider Cameron Petersen completed the perfect weekend at the Pittsburgh International Race Complex by taking pole position, winning both races convincingly and claiming the championship points lead in the MotoAmerica Stock 1000 class.
Petersen started the weekend strong by taking pole position with a blistering time of 1:43.824 on his Altus Motorsports GSX-R1000. Starting from pole position, Petersen battled all race long and traded positions with fellow Suzuki GSX-R1000 rider Alex Dumas until the final laps when he took the lead for good and secured the win on Saturday.
The young South African rider then continued his success on Sunday in race two, taking the lead from the very first lap and continued to ride tenaciously for the remainder of the race taking another hard fought win over a field of strong contenders in the class.
“That was a better race for sure,” said Cam Petersen after race two, “ We found something this morning and we were able to push throughout the whole race. The pace was way quicker than it was yesterday, but I’m not going to let those wins go that easily.”
Cameron Petersen takes his Stock 1000 championship points lead to the fifth round of the MotoAmerica roadracing championship at the Ridge Motorsports Park August 28-30 in Shelton, Washington.
