MILLVILLE, NJ (September 14, 2013) - Huntley Nash was poised for a good day on the Neyra Racing Kawasaki Superbike on Saturday before he went on a wild ride in one of the strangest Superbike races on record. Nash was able to save a crash as the result of a mechanical issue that struck his machine near the halfway point when it looked like he’d achieve one of his best finishes since joining the Superbike class.
“We were up to ninth or tenth after a good start and battling with some good riders. We had a mechanical and had to call it quits,” said Nash. “The motor didn’t blow. We had a problem with a part, and we’ll have it back together for tomorrow.”
Huntley was able to dice with some more experienced Superbike pilots in the early going on Saturday. “It was a little weird because I hadn’t been up front in Superbike yet, and there I was, making some moves on some racers I respect. We’re making progress for sure and looking forward to giving it another shot tomorrow. We’ll make some changes with the tires and look to keep going forward.”
Nash will race the second 23-lap AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike race of the weekend on Sunday.
