Both Mark Miller Jr. and Dane Westby accomplished a great deal this past weekend on their Livengood Motorsports R6s – Miller landing his first AMA podium finish in SuperSport Race 1 and Westby starting from pole in Daytona SportBike Race 1 to finish first on Saturday and closing out with a 3rd place podium finish on Sunday.
Miller, referred to as a ‘fast local racer,’ proved to be more when he secured his first podium finish aboard his Livengood built and tuned R6. In less-than-ideal conditions involving rain and a race-stopping crash, Miller battled up front with the likes of Hayden Gillim and Dustin Dominquez, eventually finishing in third place after officials announced the race as finished. Miller commented that ‘This is just really amazing to be out here, and be on the podium with these guys…it’s like a dream come true.’
Dane Westby, ‘The Wolverine,’ qualified at pole position in GoPro Daytona SportBike Race 1 on saturday, and continued to hold the front position through the race and finishing first. The Livengood name, already proven in previous races, including the Daytona 200, once again brought Westby’s double zero numbers first across the line for his third win of 2014. Westby continued his podium-finish streak on Sunday, setting the fastest lap time and taking home third place in the race and overall third in the AMA season.
Both riders have been riding Livengood built and tuned machines for this season, and Miller has ridden Livengood bikes for several recent years. Both have vaulted themselves to victory with the help of well-built and tuned racing machines; Livengood motorsports provides these same services to all racers, streetbikes, dirtbikes, and cruisers.
