Tooele, UT, (May 27, 2012) – LTD Racing’s Huntley Nash and David Gaviria finished off the short Miller Motorsports Park weekend with the sole AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike race of the event on Sunday. Nash improved all weekend to set his best lap of the weekend the last time around on the way to 14th and David Gaviria was 20th in the race.
With weather issues both days before a dry race, the task was daunting for the LTD Racing teammates. Nash saw his confidence rise and his lap times drop. Without favorable conditions in practice or qualifying, the young rider needed the race to hone his form around the Utah track.
Nash saw his times drop during the race, from high 1:59s to low 1:58s and he had the chance to make up positions as well. On the 16th and final time around, he set his best time of 1:58.065.
“The first seven laps I struggled,” said Nash, “but after that I decided to push the front and just see where it got me. I did my fastest lap on the very last lap, which is not common at all. I should have been pushing harder the first half of the race but the second half I pushed a lot harder. I came back from about ten seconds to get a position in the race and I was happy about that. I feel like we made some progress but with the weekend being so short and the weather issues, I wanted a little more. I’m looking forward to going to Road America and glad we get another shot at it soon."
Huntley turns 20 this week.
Nash and Gaviria will race at Road America June 1-3.
