Currently 9th, Bike should be significantly faster by the next race in indy after what we learned in martin. Im really shooting for a top 5 finish in the points but its hard when your racing, Chip Ellis, Rickey Gadson, Richard Gadson, Jeremy Teasley, Del Flores, Keith Tompson and such, those are really big names with big financial backers with BOAT LOADS of money in there bikes. Im just a nobody

I need some education. So, you guys have qualifying runs that eliminate riders, but the times aren't posted until the finals?

yes there are qualifying runs and the times will be posted it just takes them a week or so to update the website.

I tried a different nitrous setting in eliminations and this is what happened.
