Jim Fonseca was at the final round of the MotoAmerica series at Laguna Seca. Here we take a look at the Junior Cup!
In the final Liqui Moly Junior Cup race of the 2020 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.
“It went great, perfectly, according to plan,” Landers said when asked to self-evaluate his race. “I was trying to get as good of a first lap as I possibly could. Unfortunately, Dominic made a couple errors on the first lap and fell back a little bit. I was looking forward to having a good race with him, but we’ll take what we can get. It was an awesome race. It’s been great racing with these guys.”
