Szoke Wins Record 13th Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship At CTMP

Jordan Szoke made history today winning his record 13th, and fourth straight, national Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, part of the Superbike Doubleheader Weekend. Szoke secured the title with a fourth-place finish in Sunday’s feature race. Tomas Casas, of Peterborough, Ontario, won for the second straight day in the Liqui Moly Pro Sport Bike class.

Lynden, Ontario’s Szoke, riding the No. 1 BMW S1000RR started second behind pole sitter Kenny Riedmann, of Belfountain, Ontario on the No. 42 Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja. At the drop of the green, Szoke, Riedmann and Saturday’s race winner, Clarksburg, Ontario’s Ben Young on the No. 86 BMW S1000RR all jockeyed for position with Young eventually leading Riedmann and Szoke. That order held pat until lap 7 when Riedmann passed Young for the lead. Lap 13 saw Young retake the lead only to relinquish it again to Riedmann by lap 17. Meanwhile, Samuel Trepanier, of St. Isidore, Quebec, on the No. 14 BMW S1000RR had worked his way up from his ninth starting position to join the lead pack passing Szoke for third on the penultimate lap. Trepanier then passed Riedmann for second on the white flag lap only to give the position back running wide through Moss Corner. At the checkered it was Riedmann, Young and Trepanier across the line. For Riedmann, it was his first career Mopar Canadian Superbike win.

In other action from Sunday, Casas won flag-to-flag to score his second straight victory aboard his No. 1 Yamaha YZF-R6. The Peterborough rider had already clinched the class championship on Saturday.

Next up on the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park schedule is the Chevrolet Silverado 250 weekend featuring the first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series playoff race of 2018 and the NASCAR Pinty’s TOTAL QUARTZ 200. Canada’s biggest NASCAR event runs August 24-26. For more information or to buy tickets, please click the 'Buy Tickets' icon at the top or bottom of this page.
