‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm ecstatic because it is the first time I‰Ûªve been able to dominate a race quite like that." Herfoss said. "Every race so far has been less than a second gap, but today from the moment we rolled out of the pit garage I knew we had a great bike and it made the race so much easier.

"I really want to thank Shaun Clarke for his complete dedication. He has done a fantastic job all year.

"I am ecstatic to take the FX-Superbike Championship title and pole position for tomorrow‰Ûªs Swann Series races. Another big battle tomorrow and the Honda is up to the challenge.‰Û
