"It was a good race for us overall and it was nice to get a win at this track, in particular. I got a good start on the Rockstar Makita Suzuki GSX-R1000 and I just put my head down and ran some good laps. I'm excited to get another win at Laguna Seca – I guess I've finally got this place figured out after 13 years. It's fantastic for Suzuki to get up here one-two-three, and I'm looking forward to next year and hopefully a fair series" said Mat.
