: RA Qualifying times?

09-13-2002, 10:26 PM
Hey everybody,

Was hoping somebody has, or knows where to find, the qualifying times for the entire grid for 600SS and 750 Superstock from Road America this past year? Or, more importantly... what were the qualifying times for the LAST few qualifiers? I know the cutoff is 112% of pole... I just wanna know what they were actually qualifying with (so I can set my goals for next year's RA events :)) So far, all I can find on the web are the top-10 qualifiers. I want the bottom-10.

I think they might be in one of my back issues of RRW Jim. I'll see if I can dig them up. You are reffering to the AMA Supersport bikes arent you?

Yeah... actually, I found 'em (Michael hooked me up with a link :))

Thanks anyways tho!

Uhhh, they sure do, so long as you knock about 20 seconds off. ;)

Last qualifier in 600SS was a surprisingly slow 2:36.833. Pole was a 2:15.650. A majority of theriders were in the mid 20s (23-27s)

Last qualifier in 750SS wasn't much better with a 2:33.836. Pole was a 2:14.843. Most of the qualifiers were in the high teens (18s-19s)

I figured last place would've been in the low 20s for both classes. 30s to mid-teens is a LARGE speed differential. I guess it's cool tho - that means that I could already potentially qualify (best lap was a 2:28.35) :) I'm very seriously expecting to get down to high 25s come April (CCS event) and hopefully get some lower 20s by the end of next year.
