Since it has been two years since anyone has beaten Jordan Szoke in a Mopar CSBK National Feature race, it would be wrong to say that Szoke’s dominant position with his Express Lane/Motovan BMW has been truly challenged. However, there were some encouraging signs at Shubenacadie’s double header, especially on the Sunday.
Szoke started from Pole position in both east coast races, having earned his third straight Dalton Timmis Insurance SuperPole Friday afternoon. By the way, Szoke also won his third Pole Rockwell watch – no one else has scored a time piece so far this year.
SHUBENACADIE, N.S. – Jordan Szoke took his Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship winning streak to 12 races with a dramatic victory in the fifth race of the 2016 season at Atlantic Motorsport Park on Sunday, sponsored by Honda Canada and Pro Cycle.
Riding his Mopar Express Lane / Motovan / BMW Motorrad BMW S1000RR the Lynden, Ont. racer took the lead from Kenny Riedmann on lap 19 of the 22-lap race and edged clear to complete a sweep of the weekend doubleheader and claim his ninth career Canadian Superbike triumph at the 2.56km (1.6-mile), 11-turn venue north of Halifax.
