Lexington, Ohio (July 14, 2013) – Huntley Nash and Neyra Racing set a new high mark with their third AMA Pro Superbike weekend, finishing 13th on Saturday and backing that up with 14th place in a tough event that saw Nash nearly crash in oil on the surface before the event started.
Nash took a few laps to recover from his near-mishap and but then began to move up from the back of the field. Nash lost out on one spot late to end up 14th but was able to gain valuable on-track experience for himself and the team and complete another Superbike race.
“The first ten laps, I felt like I was just riding around. I wasn’t happy with the condition of the track after I somehow saved a crash on the warm-up lap, and I was unsure of things. I was really disappointed that the race went forward with the circuit in conditions like that,” said Nash. “I finally got going a little better and made up some ground on the track and was able to do some decent laps. I then made one mistake to lose out a position, but overall the weekend was a step in the right direction. I’m not happy about the race at all right now, largely because I was wanting to earn a top ten, but we did make some progress this weekend.”
Team owner Justin Neyra commented on the progress. “I know Huntley was a little frustrated with today, but I was happy with his performance,” said Justin Neyra. “I think he showed a lot of integrity and maturity after a tough beginning to mentally get himself in position to turn in some 1:28s at the very end, which were the fastest laps of the weekend. That’s what it’s going to take to be successful in Superbike … to move forward and move forward each weekend.”
