ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (June 1, 2012) -- LTD Racing’s Huntley Nash got off to a great start at Road America. After turning 20 years old yesterday, Nash was fast in the opening AMA Pro Daytona SportBike practice and first qualifying on Friday. Huntley took ninth in practice and tenth on qualifying, but his lap times were very promising at the 4.05-mile track.
“It’s going well for us so far this weekend,” said Nash, whose best mark was 2:21.854. “I went two seconds faster than I’ve ever gone here before, including when I won in SuperSport a couple of years back. I really do like this track and I figured out some stuff with my riding in the last few laps at Miller and will continue to work on getting better. In qualifying, I went fastest on some tires that had gone race distance when I did my best lap.
For Nash, the weekend offers a chance to regain the momentum of the year’s first two events that saw him perform his best since joining the ultra-competitive DSB field in 2011 after winning multiple races in SuperSport.
“I think we’re in the mix,” said Nash. “I really want to be competing with the front guys and shooting for the podium. Looking at lap times over race distances, I think we’re very close. It will be tough, but we’re giving it everything we can to have some good races.”
