    IMO class has about 13 riders, so I reckon her floor is 14th.

    I assumed you would get the call Gino! You would look great in a Mission Chips cardboard cutout. They’d sell a lot of chips with you. Heck, you could make sure every flight of yours has a bag of mission chips. Hundreds of impressions every time you fly.

    Strange nobody seems willing to overlook a bunch of 25th place finishes. It's predjudice, I tell ya!

    My prediction for Saturday SBK:

    But I can't predict the order for 4th through 8th. That battle is going to be good. Escalante, Scholz and Fong are gonna mix it up. Beach will have more time on the bike as will Paasch. But Fores has a ton of superbike experience and Mesa is always tough. I am looking forward to the races and if Herrin misses the setup even a little, he could be right in the middle of that battle.

    He didn't win the chip yet and that was supposed to be the deal to let him ride SB the last two rounds.

    So, you think on her first weekend on the Kawi, at a track she's never been to before, with a totally new team, she'll beat Tyler Scott, Xavi, Hayes, and Teagg Hobbs? I mean she's very fast and clearly and up and comer, but that's asking a lot.

    Has she even ridden this bike before? If she’s top 10 that’s great.

    Mesa on a new bike new track. He’s light and on a fast bike. A lot of club experience on the 1k. Fuck he was taking it to Dwyer, McLean, and Bruno 8 years ago on the west side 1k Suzuki.

    I'd LOVE for that to play out but I'm gonna predict she finishes 7-8th in race #1 and if it's a 2 race weekend I think she'll find herself closer so maybe 6-7th. Still impressive and nothing to hang her head about by any means.

    Well, we do have a new-to-the-series teenager on a new bike and team in the Top 5 but it's not Kayla, young Torrin Collins is making a killer debut in FP1 - wowza thats impressive for his first time there on the Hammer 750.
