The American Superbike race at Laguna Seca Raceway was confusing for a lot of spectators and riders. First there was mis-start by a number of riders. The mis-start led to another warm-up lap for the entire field. On the restart there was more trouble as Ben Bostrom crashed in Turn 2 which affected Hodgson and Larry Pegram.

The race continued but the Laguna Seca safety minivan came onto the track for an unknown reason. The safety car almost cased a major pile-up by driving on the race line in the blind turn where the bikes came around at full speed. The race was stopped, restarted again and within seconds was red flagged.

Eventually the next start worked out and Hodgson and Holden were in the hunt for the front of the pack. Bostrom had the holeshot, followed by Hayden, Young, Yates, Miadin and Hodgson. Hodgson almost moved up on the last lap but his effort came up a bike length short.
