RA AMA bull crappin June 2012

Just wondering what you guys think the different classes are going to turn as far as lap times go today and this weekend. Practice starts in a little while and I'm keeping an eye on it through the app on my phone.

It's 60 degrees and a slimey road america. I'm betting fastest laps in Supersport are going to be low 2:30s in practice this morning.

Who's going to go fast this weekend?

I don't think people really care about AMA Roadracing. Sad but true Nick. Looking forward to watching some of the locals race this wweekend like Chimi, Dan Ortega, David Grey, and Dave Ebben.

2:30s? Seriously? They are that slow compared to the 1000s?

I was just thinking that with how cold it is outside. It looks like Hayes already threw down a 2:12 so that throws my theory out the window. I guess its dry out. LOL! Or he's just a mad man. If he already ran a 2;12 in practice it will be interesting to see how fast he goes during the race.

Hayes is pretty fast at Road America. I'm thinking he's got this one by at least half a lap.

Awesome for Ricardo!

2 and teens (or below) now that is more what I would expect from the big boyz.

Seems like Mladin and Spies were in that range a few years ago when it was warmer.

Either way, Hayes is seriously motoring.

Josh put the smack down by getting into the 2:11's during qualifying. Nice!

Looks like Shawn Hill from motovid crashed during the end of qualifying. Doesn't look like he will make the 110% cut off to make the big show.
