Kawasaki Ama Superbike
Sonoma is a delight, but there's more. It is a hop, skip and jump, characterized distinctly for many of the attractions as wine, food and gorgeous countryside. If you're itching for a dose of the city life, Sonoma is a gateway to get your fill.
The Golden Gate Bridge awaits only an hour and a half, south of Sonoma and Infineon. The Bridge links you to the cultural richness that is San Francisco.
If you've never been, it most certainly is worth the drive or ride. Infineon Raceway plays host to an early round of the AMA Superbike series every May. Began in 1968, Infineon celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2008.
Team Green has been the title sponsor for Kawasaki Superbike showdown for the last five years. Kawasaki's director of marketing, Bruce Stjernstrom says, ?A broad mixture of the motorcycling community is drawn to Sonoma by a common passion for the sport'.
It is true that people come to witness supreme talent on the racetrack and revel in the atmosphere of amity and brotherhood which is, by large, an integral part of the motorcycling lifestyle.
This year, the Superbike Championship races witnessed yet another domination by the Rockstar/Makita/American Suzuki duo of Ben Spies and Mat Mladin.
Young Mr. Elbows was winner on both days with Saturday's Race 1 victory just over 6 seconds ahead of Mladin. Kawasaki's Jamie Hacking endorsed the event title sponsor's honor by virtue of his pair of podium finishes.
On something of a related note, it seems that many in the pits weren't too keen in the winds of change for the 2009 season courtesy of Daytona Motorsports Group.
Mladin voiced his hot displeasure at the winner's circle interview after Race 1 when he warned the crowd, plainly saying that the ?09 superbike series will come up with ?piece of crap motorcycles and second-rate riders'.
Other equally famous guests of Kawasaki included boxing great, Roy Jones, Jr., Kadeem Hardison of television sit-com and movie fame, and male supermodel and super nice guy Tyson Beckford. All three figures are real motorcycle guys.
Jones Jr. , ?Fighter of the 1990s Decade ' is the current IBF light-heavyweight title-holder, owns a pair of Yamaha R1s.
Hardison, seen in the current hit, Made of Honor is perhaps best known for his role as Dwayne Wayne on the Cosby spinoff. Beckford owns a custom Hayabusa, also showed that he could handle a ZX-10R when he took a ride with MO's Ed in Chief, Kevin Duke, during the weekend.
All three of the celeb-riders participated in a Kawi-sponsored track event the day following the races. It was their first time riding a racetrack, and all of them enjoyed it thoroughly. ?
It was a high I've never felt before', expressed Beckford. The biggest smile of the day had to have been on the face of Hardison who said through an ear-to-ear grin, ?It was so fun I can't even believe it'.
If you're an enthusiast of great racing, great riding and great fun, do all you can to get to this great event, Kawasaki Ama Superbike. For the last half decade Kawasaki has let the good times roll at Infineon whereas another five years are expected to be in store.
