Daytona, FL (March 14, 2013) -- LTD Racing and Huntley Nash opened the
2013 AMA Pro season on Thursday at Daytona with an excellent day for the young rider. Nash was 6th and 11th in the practice sessions for the historic race.
Nash, making his third Daytona 200 start this weekend, found himself in competitive form on the long course used for Saturday’s race.
Huntley’s goal, to run with the lead pack in the race, came one step closer when he found the speed to run inside the top ten in the morning, showcasing the skill he has developed in his time on the AMA Pro tour.
The former SuperSport race winner was pleased to show good form in the afternoon, too. “On one lap, I had a draft but we were slow through the infield and the next lap I was able to go fast through the infield, so my ideal time was pretty solid at 1:52.875. That’s a good start and what I’m really looking forward to is getting to go for 57 laps. The previous 200-mile races, something has always happened but we’re working hard to have a positive weekend to start the year.”
Nash has been training with multi-time Daytona champ Scott Russell in Atlanta, reviewing races and taking in a little advice from Mr. Daytona. “I’ve been training hard and really ready to get back on the track with the team and see what we can do. The team has worked hard and I gave them some extra work when I had a crash at Jennings a few days ago, but everyone pitched in and we had a good day. I’m excited for this chance in the Daytona 200.”
Nash will qualify for the Daytona 200 in two sessions on Friday.
