MONTEREY, Calif. -- Yamaha's Josh Herrin won the AMA Pro SuperBike season title Sunday, and teammate Josh Hayes raced to his eighth victory of the season in the finale at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
Herrin finished second, 13.434 seconds behind Hayes. Herrin edged Hayes by 15 points in the standings.
"This has been a lifelong dream of mine and it's finally come true," Herrin said. "I can't even explain the emotions right now. Coming around that last lap, I just filled up with tears. I could barely see where I was going. I've never felt that kind of emotion before. It's crazy the emotions you feel when you achieve something you've been waiting to do your whole life."
