    He hasn't yet learned to quickly cut through the pack but he is doing better than in the past. Even then he is not consistent at coming from the back, last week he made it to 3rd but he did spend more time passing much slower riders than other top riders.

    We'll see in a couple more hours, the top 5 riders were all in the same second in qualifying practice today.

    Dungey only 7th in Q, 1.3 sec off JS and over a second off Tomac. Tomac and Roczen are the 2nd and 3rd fastest bikes on the track! RV 2nd 450, Grant 3rd!, Millsaps 4th.

    Those lap times are interesting down to 10th place. Race is going to be real interesting.

    I may need to change my prediction that it's Dungey's night. He has not been the usual Mr. Consistency so far this season. Wonder if it's that air suspension? Are they still running that?

    Barcia is also off the pace a bit (for Barcia :wink:)

    But qualifying is not racing so the night is still up for grabs.

    You don't want that landing from a jump, or going through the whoops. Maybe the AMA should make a rule requiring springs.
    They talked to Roger D. and he confirmed an air shock problem.
    I see on Racerxill that Roger signed a contract extension through '16. He seems to be the type that wouldn't be happy in retirement.

    Dungey proved why he is a champ tonight...just my opinion.

    Imagine if Stewart was 100% healthy he would be killing it.

    and Reed...man oh man

    KDub in the booth with Ralph next week!

    Sure glad I didn't give on Dungey when that shock did. Screw on an untested spring shock and be able to ride like that! :clap

    Something happened to Carnard but never a clue what it was.

    Great races. All sorts of drama all night long. I think the rain threw in the final curve ball.

    Great ride by Dungey.

    You knew Dungey meant business when he just sat there on the outside gate,waiting in the rain with no umbrella.

    Focused.
