Jordan Szoke rode his Mopar Express Lane/Motovan BMW S1000RR to an emphatic win in Sunday’s fifth Feature race of the Mopar CSBK Canadian Superbike Championship, presented by Honda Canada, at Atlantic Motorsport Park in Shubenacadie, NS.
Top qualifier Szoke (Lynden, ON) was challenged at the start of the scheduled 22-lap feature by eventual runner-up Kenny Riedmann (Belfountain, ON), but he passed the Kawasaki rider before turn 2 and started building a gap to the rest of the field. The defending Canadian Superbike champion was ahead by 10.55 seconds on the 17th lap when a two-rider crash resulted in a red flag, stopping the race and making the results official. It was Szoke’s fourth victory of the 2017 season.
