The Daytona SportBike race was also action-packed and exciting, but not in the way that Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha rider Josh Herrin or his team had hoped for. With Josh on the gas and clearly in contention for the win, his YZF-R6(r) suffered an ultra-rare technical issue that forced him to slow, ultimately ending his day. Racing can sometimes be cruel and heartless, but the always-optimistic Josh reacted to the DNF with a positive attitude. Despite his chances to win the DSB season championship taking a serious hit, Josh said, "We're going to New Jersey with both eyes open and looking to win the pole and both races. Then we'll see where we end up in the championship. Anything can happen. I only wish the race was next weekend...or tomorrow. Bring it on!"
