Uncle Joe Benson at work & play at the 2005 AMA Superbike races at California Speedway Race.

April 30 - May 1, 2005: It was two incredible days of sun, people watching and high speed excitement with the best road racing bike riders in the U.S. at the 2005 Suzuki Superbike Challenge at the California Speedway! As Dave Koenig called play-by-play, J.B. did color commentating and analysis as well as pre-race and Victory Lane interviews for all five races. A wild time was had by all!
