MILLVILLE, NJ (September 13, 2013) - Huntley Nash went faster than he ever has at New Jersey Motorsports Park on Friday as the young racer continued to show the potential of the Neyra Racing Superbike program, a new team looking to make a splash in the world of AMA Pro SuperBike.

Nash was up to spped quickly after the team opted to develop their bike away from the track instead of racing at the last two AMA Pro events.

“I was really surprised how quick we were after not racing the last two rounds. I thought it might make some time for us to work up to speed but we seemed to pick right up were we left off,” said LTD Racing’s Nash, who switched to the Superbike program full time in 2013 after a successful race at Road America. “I was never in the ‘25s at New Jersey but once maybe on a 600, so I was happy to be going a second and a half faster than I have usually gone around here almost immediately.”

Nash was timed at 1:24.012 in the afternoon session, good for 13th provisionally as he continued to make in roads on the powerful Kawasaki.

“The bike works a lot better out of the box than it did at Mid-Ohio. I am starting to get the hang of riding the bike how it needs to be ridden. It seems to respond to point-and-shoot riding, which is fine with me. The bike is really powerful and the team has done a great job of improving the bike, even though our full electronics package isn’t ready yet.”

Nash’s goal for the weekend is to close out his season with a high mark. “I’m hoping to get my best result, hopefully a top ten,” said Nash. “It was a promising day for us.”
