Millville, NJ (September 8, 2012) – Huntley Nash was able to charge inside the top ten in the first AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike race at New Jersey, although the young racer ultimately finished 14th in the contest, one position ahead of where he qualified.

The Georgian was able to get a great start and run inside the top ten after a red flag. While he wasn’t able to maintain the pace, he gained valuable knowledge as he continues to improve during the AMA Pro race weekend.

The former SuperSport race winner was able to make up one spot on the final lap as he set his second-best lap of the race on worn tires on the final time around the 14-turn track.

“I had a really good start and was up in sixth or seventh or something after the red flag. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to hold it, but I went for it,” said Huntley. “After that, I settled in to where I was going to be and then made up one position at the end. We got to run a lot of laps and I found the weak spot with the bike and we’re changing out the shock right now for tomorrow. I ran into problems in two key areas and that’s where I was losing the majority of my time. The bike was a little unbalanced and we’re balancing it. I think we can find a little more pace for tomorrow.”

Nash will contest the 23-lap finale at 2 PM local time tomorrow.
