Sunnyvale, Calif., May 19, 2022 — Following a perfect opening race weekend for the MotoAmerica
Supersport class a month ago at Road Atlanta, Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati NYC’s Josh Herrin
will keep the focus full throttle as he looks to extend his points lead at VIRginia International
Raceway this weekend.

The California-based racers is ready to pounce the Supersport grid on his V2, and will certainly
have a huge crowd of American Ducatisti cheering him on.

since 2004. Obviously, we have not yet tested the Panigale V2 there, but the bike should be perfect
for the circuit. I’m looking forward to spinning some laps at VIR and seeing how the V2 performs.
We are carrying the momentum from the Road Atlanta victories into VIR, and looking forward to
