Josh Herrin was on a three race win streak heading into Barber Motorsports Park. Herrin could have captured his fourth consecutive win, but a mechanical error put him on the sidelines during the first Daytona Sportbike race. With Herrin out of the race, Danny Eslick pushed himself to the front of the pack, and was eventually able to widen the gap to three seconds.
Eslick would claim his first win of the season, while fellow Suzuki rider Cory West would take third and the championship lead.
Herrin would be able to get some points back in race two, however. Eslick led for every lap during the second Daytona Sportbike race except for the last one. Herrin made a late race pass and was able to take the checkers by .02 seconds.
Here's a look at the Daytona Sportbike series at Barber Motorsports Park from June 18th-20th, 2011.
