DAYTONA BEACH, FL (May 7, 2010) - Infineon Raceway's 2009 AMA Pro National Guard American SuperBike race was the first glimpse of the future, but at the time, it didn't seem so significant. Now looking back, it was a moment that foretold the future as eventual 2009 AMA Pro American SuperBike Champion Mat Mladin was beaten for the first time after opening the season with seven straight race wins by none other than Team Graves Yamaha rider Josh Hayes. Mladin righted the ship with a win in the second race of the Infineon Raceway doubleheader but he only won three more races on his way to his record seventh championship. It was Hayes who took control of the sport with six wins, including the last four in a row. With Mladin's retirement at the end of the year, Hayes set the tone for this season in American SuperBike, where there have already been four different winners in six races.
