MONTEREY, Calif. – The MotoAmerica Series came to a close on Sunday at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca with Liqui Moly Junior Cup and Twins Cup Champion Rocco Landers taking two wins on the day, while Sean Dylan Kelly put it all on the line to beat his rival and Supersport champion Richie Escalante in a thrilling Supersport finale.

After winning Saturday’s Supersport race one, M4 ECSTAR Suzuki’s Kelly said in the post-race press conference that he wanted to finish off the year strong and get the double win with a victory on Sunday’s race two. And that’s exactly what he did.

Starting from the pole, Kelly gave up the lead to HONOS Kawasaki rider Richie Escalante, who had already clinched the class championship at Indianapolis Motor Speedway two weekends ago. But Kelly was far from satisfied with being in second. He and Escalante engaged in a race-long battle that continued all the way to the final corner of the final lap. Escalante ran a little wide in the turn and opened the door for Kelly to take the lead and then the win.

Escalante finished second and Celtic HSBK Racing’s J.D. Beach, who was racing in MotoAmerica for the first time all season and was aboard a Celtic HSBK Racing Yamaha, finished third.

In Sunday’s Twins Cup race, class champion Rocco Landers had his work cut out for him. The Suzuki rider started from fourth on the grid, didn’t get a good jump off the line, and was shuffled back to fifth. Meanwhile, Dominic Doyle got past polesitter Cooper McDonald and took the lead aboard his Robem Engineering/Plastic Surgery Racing Suzuki.

Doyle swapped the lead with 1-833-CJKNOWS Accident & Injury Law Yamaha’s Kaleb De Keyrel. On lap eight of 13, Landers, who had been moving up through the pack, took the lead and maintained it till the checkered flag. Doyle moved into second place, and De Keyrel into third to complete the final Twins Cup podium of the year.

In the final Liqui Moly Junior Cup race of the season. Rocco Landers completed another perfect weekend by adding a win on Sunday to his Twins Cup victory earlier in the day and his triumph in Junior Cup race two.

Starting from second on the grid, Landers got the holeshot aboard his Norton Motorsports/Ninja400R/Dr. Farr/WonderCBD Kawasaki and was never headed in the 13-lap event. He finished a little over three seconds ahead of BARTCON Racing Kawasaki’s Dominic Doyle, who moved into second place on lap two and stayed there all the way to the checkers. Finishing third was Celtic HSBK Racing Kawasaki’s Sam Lochoff, who overtook MotoAmerica newcomer Max Toth on the final lap to secure the final spot on the podium.
