Gagne’s Gunship: With 13 straight HONOS Superbike victories and counting, this R1 is a record-setting machine. Photo by Brian J. Nelson.
In 2020, Cameron Beaubier won 16 HONOS Superbike races on his way to clinching his fifth MotoAmerica Superbike Championship. He tied the record for most AMA Superbike victories in a single season (equaling the record-setting number of wins Josh Hayes stacked up in 2012).
In 2021, Beaubier’s former teammate Jake Gagne has a good chance to break the tie and own the record outright. Going into the final six races of the season, Gagne has already won 13 HONOS Superbike races in a row (a new record for consecutive Superbike victories), and if his streak continues, he will set a new record with 19 Superbike victories in a single season. And, this is the motorcycle on which Gagne has a chance to make history.
