Sunoco Formula USA race #1
        Tray Batey took the holeshot and ran away from the field right from the start. That left Dave Sadowski and Fritz 
Kling to race for second place. Kling waited until the charge to the checkered flag to make his move and barely drafted past 
Ski for second place in a photo finish.

Sunoco Formula USA race #2
        When the green flag waved, Dave Sadowski lived up to a promise he made in victory circle after the first race and 
beat Tray Batey off the line. Unfortunately for Ski, a chain adjuster snapped under the acceleration and his Honda rolled to 
a stop as the rest of the field jetted by.

        With Ski gone, Batey quickly assumed the lead position. Then, still on the first lap, Fritz Kling pulled off with a 
broken transmission. That was all it took for Batey to record his second victory of the day.

        Behind him, things were less settled. Grant Lopez and Steve Grigg staged a racelong battle with Lopez edging his way 
into third at the flag.

EBC Brakes Sport Bike Series
        Jason Fraser led much of the race with a trio of challengers on his heels, but when he dropped out with a mechanical 
problem late in the race it was left to David Cook, Eric Wood and Mike Sullivan to determine the final winner. It was Cook on 
the Yamaha that beat the rest across the finish line with Wood in second and Sullivan in third. It was Cook's first career 
national win.

        Team Corbin/Motorcycle Online's Shawn Higbee battled his way to sixth on his Buell S1 Lightning.  He hopes to put it 
on top of podium soon.

HRC American GP Series by Idemitsu
        It seemed like nobody could beat Masahiro Iizuka, but fans at Portland saw that in reality Nobi can. Nobi Iso, a 
Japanese national living in Tigard, Oregon, gave Iizuka his best race at Portland last year. Iso had actually retired from 
racing this year, but saved money while working in Japan the past four months to make one final attempt to beat his 
countryman at the NASB race this weekend.  The pair went wheel to wheel from start to finish and at the checkers Iso's dream 
came true.

Harley-Davidson Twin Sports
        Billy Graef took off like a man on a mission at the start of the Harley race. Teammate Shawn Conrad was close for a 
while, but not too long. Before the race was over, Conrad found holding onto second place wasn't that easy either as Todd 
Evans worked up through the field and eventually took over the runner up spot. Conrad held on for third, his second podium 
finish on the day.

Buell Lightning Series
        Shawn Higbee lofted the front wheel of his Team Corbin/Motorcycle Online Buell Lightning at the start as Hansen 
Motorsports teammates Shawn Conrad and Billy Graef took the lead positions at the front of the field. It was just a matter of 
time before Higbee got up to speed and worked his way to the front. At the finish it was Higbee winning his third race of the 
year with Graef in second and Conrad in third.

        Higbee has a perfect record on the year, but because he missed the last race at Road Atlanta with a separated 
shoulder, he is trailing Conrad in the series standings by seven points (112 to 105). Todd Evans, fourth at Portland, is tied 
with Higbee at 105.
