Excited to see him run WSBK this weekend - from what I've read, he's racing both series this weekend.

Thanks for the update Jared. How is the crowd ? I hear of people driving from Illinios, seems like a long road trip. They are bringing their bikes with them so I assume there will be some riding, maybe a track day after the race meeeting is finished?

Yes Team Punkass it is good to see Josh Herrin do well as a wildcard. He & Michael van der Mark went a fraction slower in FP2 but Alex Lowes went a little faster. I will be watching fp3.

Hoping for some good racing. Planning to get to the track in person next year.
