Starting in their Saturday qualifying slots of pole position and second, respectively, Gagne and Beaubier both made good launches off the line. Race one winner Beaubier just took the lead into Turn 1, building a gap immediately and leading Gagne by over three seconds on the seventh lap. In full control of the race, Beaubier was consistently throwing down some fast times and took home another commanding victory, his ninth of 2020, and a career-best record for the most wins in a season.
Behind his teammate, Gagne lapped solidly in second place, maintaining his gap to the chasing pack. In the final laps, the Californian had a rider in hot pursuit, but he held off the challenge to return to the podium, his eighth of the season.
The double podium on Sunday gives the Monster Energy Attack Performance Yamaha team an excellent lead at the top of the standings, with reigning champion Beaubier and Gagne in commanding first and second positions in the championship. The team will be back in action at the New Jersey Motorsports Park, in Millville, New Jersey, September 11-13.
