SONOMA, Calif. - Yoshimura Suzuki rider Mat Mladin continued his early-season roll on Sunday, capturing a doubleheader in the AMA Supercuts Superbike Challenge at Infineon Raceway. The event was presented by Honda of Milpitas and Cabo Wabo Tequila.

Mladin has now won four consecutive Superbike main events and seems to be returning to the same form that saw him capture three consecutive U.S. Chevy Trucks Superbike championships from 1999-2001. Mladin holds a 24-point lead over teammate Aaron Yates (174-150) after five events this year and is bidding to become the first-ever four-time AMA Superbike champion.

Mladin was followed on the podium in the first 28-lap main event by Yates and third-place finisher Miguel Duhamel (Honda). Mladin and Yates also finished one-two in the second 28-lap feature, with Ben Bostrom (Honda) taking third.

Yamaha's Jamie Hacking posted his second consecutive victory of the year in Pro Honda Oils Supersport, starting the 17-lap feature race on the pole and never looking back. Teammate Damon Buckmaster was second, with Honda's Jake Zemke third. Hacking holds a 21-point lead over Buckmaster (106-85) after three events.

Other winners on Sunday included: Tommy Hayden (Kawasaki, Genuine Suzuki Accessories Superstock); Ben Spies (Suzuki, Lockhart-Phillips USA Formula Xtreme); and Rich Oliver (Yamaha, MBNA 250 Grand Prix).
