“Dodging all of this rain has been pretty annoying but there’s not much we can do about it,” Reed said. “We tested earlier this week before we came here and once we can get weather that’s better than we’ve seen so far this weekend, we can show what we’ve learned. Tomorrow is going to be an interesting one, but I think we can pull off an upset.”
ANGELLE SAMPEY, PSE/TEAM LIBERTY RACING BUELL
Q1: 6.899, 193.24 (+ 2 bonus points)
Q2: 6.910, 193.16 (+ 2 bonus points)

“I’m just so proud of my crew chiefs Ken [Johnson] and Derrell [Mullis],” Sampey said. “They’ve really figured out what my bike likes, and it showed during our two qualifying runs. Picking up those bonus points really boosted our confidence heading into eliminations tomorrow.”
