If You Think Miguel Complains About Lapped Riders Now, Wait Until Friday At Fontana When He Has To Practice With Guys Who Have Never Seen The Track Before

This just in from Kevin Pate of Annandale Racing, via e-mail:<BR><BR>I just wanted to make a comment about the failure to have a Thursday practice (at Fontana), which also affected our team and staff.<BR><BR>I feel the AMA and the manufacturers should want a day of practice to avoid mixing riders with track time and riders that are seeing the track for the first time. I am sure there are going to be 25-30 second-a-lap difference in the first Friday morning practice.<BR><BR>It should be exciting for the spectators, though.
