Lexington, Ohio (July 12, 2013) – Huntley Nash opened the Mid-Ohio AMA Pro Superbike round in proper fashion on Friday, putting in solid laps on the Neyra Racing Kawasaki ZX-10. It was the best opening day yet in Nash’s brief three-event Superbike career as the young racer built upon the momentum of his previous experiences on the quick Neyra Racing machine.
“We started out okay, but the plan is still to improve on Saturday like we did at Barber and cut some more time off the laps,” said LTD Racing’s Nash. “We’re starting out closer and that’s a good thing. The Neyra Racing team has done a great job of preparing the bikes and I continue to learn each time out. We are going to make some changes for tomorrow. The bike really likes to wheelie around this track. We’ll see what we can do in final qualifying and the races. We’re all trying our best to keep getting faster as we develop the bike.”
Nash was 14th in the morning session and went quicker in the afternoon, breaking into the 1:29-range. Huntley, who had never raced a Superbike before last month’s AMA Pro round at Road America, was able to get 47 laps in during the two sessions. The SuperSport race winner will have another shot to better his time in final qualifying before this weekend’s two AMA Pro Superbike races.
Huntley’s goal for the weekend is to improve on the 13th place finish he earned at Elkhart Lake, a tough task for the 21-year old in America’s premier roadracing class.
Tomorrow’s race is scheduled for 3 PM local time.
