ELKHART LAKE, WI (June 3, 2013) -- Huntley Nash rebounded from a difficult weekend to finish 13th in Sunday’s AMA Pro National Guard Superbike race at Road America. Nash, who fell hard in turn five in the AMA Pro Daytona SportBike race following a mechanical issue, rebounded to score points in his first weekend of competition in the Superbike class. The 21-year-old piloted the Neyra Racing Kawasaki ZX10 as the team greatly improved the pace during the weekend, one that saw him compete in both Superbike and DSB.
“I am happy with how the Superbike race turned out for us after some tough points in the weekend,” said Nash. “We went around two seconds faster than we qualified in today’s race. It was really the first time we got to see what we could do after being taken out of yesterday’s race and some dodgy weather at times this weekend. We made a lot of progress with the bike with limited track time. I think we’re ahead of where people think we should be at this point. It was the most fun I’ve had for a while, and I want to do it again.”
“Superbike is different, and I am still learning, but it didn’t really overwhelm me,” said the LTD Racing regular. “I think we can make more progress next time.”
Nash will next race at Barber Motorsports Park June 21-23.
