    Maybe later in the season, but the bike is new so I don't think so in the first round. I would be happy if proven wrong as I would like to see a Duc win, but just not seeing it.

    Mark gets a shirt for that call. Damn, all I got is XL. Thanks for the optimism!

    That would be a good battle, but Mesa is running Stk 1000 and PJ is in Supersport.

    SS: Fong
    Stock 1k: Paris
    Jr Cup: Jigalov
    Twins: Ricky Bobby and Barney duking it out all race. or Draik

    Reality:
    SBK: Elias

    SBK: Elias
    STock1k: Lee
    SS: Fong
    Twins: tight battle with Parrish, Dumas, Turner and Tigert. My prediction is a close one for Tigert.
    Jr Cup: coin flip between 6 kids, who knows.

    So everyone seems to think Fong is going to win over P.J. and Hayden? He is fast but I do not think he can beat those two. Hell he might even lose to his team mate.

    And if it’s wet you may not see a Yamaha in the top 10. And that’s coming from a huge draik fan. Too much talent on SVs (and one duc) and the only indication I’ve seen that the fz can corner with an SV was Robby Bobby at barber last year. Jason was next best on one and he couldn’t get near Chris on any track that didn’t have a huge straight (granted I think Chris is also a far better rider).

    I’d love to see a Parrish/Beauchamp 1,2 (they’re my homies) but I don’t know how competitive I think the yamaha will be and Tigert is a beast. Also think Dumas is a contender and Barney is the dark horse on the unknown of the duc. Obviously Chris is hella fast and this is one of his home tracks. I predict Tigert, Parrish, Dumas, turner on the podium between both days but no idea what order.

    Herron/Elias split.
    Hayden/PJ split
    Mesa (didn’t know he was running MA til I saw someone else predict his win).
    No clue in jr. cup

    Anyone know what time twins qualifying will be? Looks like it won’t be streamed online but the MA website schedule only shows practice and qualifying all day Friday. No specific times for each class. And will there be live timing like there was last year?

    Gagne and the Bavarian missile to be trouble for the factory 4 and on the box.
    I'm hoping the Duc works well for KW.
    JD should be fast and Matt should be there too.
    Fun times ahead.

    Why has not one person mentioned Cameron B ?? No idea how to spell his last name. I’m thinking he will take the win. Herrin will come out super strong then fade back into the top 3 or so.

    I wish. But my wife is due on Monday and i probably shouldn’t be 4 hours away if she happens to go into labor a day or two early.

    She actually told me to go ahead because she figured I could probably make it back in time. I’m thinking I’d better not. Lol

    Do you know if there will be live timing for qualifying?
