Ryhno Racing: MotoAmerica Prep Update

PittRace is a track I seemed to gel with quickly and while I can see more time easily moving forward, it was nice to get up to pace quicker than I expected. During the practice day on Friday, my goal was to just get down into times that were below 1:55. To my shock, I was in the 1:53’s by the third session of the day so I was feeling excited for the races to come. Saturday morning was qualifying and I further lowered my time to a low 1:52.
