HSBK Racing's Dustin Dominguez leaves Barber with a 1 and 2

Houston, TX., June 24, 2014. HSBK Racing had an impressive weekend at the
AMA Triumph Superbike Classic at Barber Motorsports Park. Dustin Dominguez
rode the HSBK-prepped Yamaha YZF-R6 to the podium in both races. This is
Dominguez first year on a Yamaha and he has continued to learn the nuances
of the bike and improve his performance with every race.

The new two day abbreviated race format put more pressure on the team for
every run on the track to go smoothly.  Saturday the schedule held
qualifying 1 and 2 as well as race 1.  Qualifying 1 was used to build a good
motorcycle for Dustin and in qualifying 2 Dustin was able to put the bike on
pole with the fast time of 1:29.75.

Before race 1, a bike dropped a large amount of oil on the track during the
last laps of the Superbike race. Dominguez opted to go slower out of the
gate to test to see if the track was still slick. He also struggled with
rear wheel grip, but his strong riding enabled him to finish with a solid
second. For race 2, the team made a few changes to improve rear wheel grip.
The changes proved helpful with Dominguez grabbing the hole shot and leading
most of the 15 lap race. Hayden Gilliam kept the pressure on Dustin most of
the race and made for a great race. Dustin was able to make strategic passes
on lappers and win the race with a gap of 1.78 seconds. The valuable points
from the first and second finish put Dominguez in third in the points
championship just 13 points behind the top two riders who are tied with 141
points.

"The team busted their butts giving me a bike that could win," Dominguez
said. "I thank all the fans coming out here and sticking with us in this
heat."
