Lopez Fastest at Homestead on GSX-R1000

Grant Lopez was the fastest man in practice for a CCS regional race at Homestead Miami Speedway Saturday on a 2001 GSX-R1000 Suzuki.

Lopez's best lap was a 1:28.01, or about one second off the lap record he set in December of 1999.

Lopez turned his time with stock forks, and after practice concluded, his crew installed a set of Ohlins racing forks.

"I'm not optimistic that we're going to break the record tomorrow," said Lopez. "We've got limited time on this bike, not much practice tomorrow morning, and we just put a completely different front end on it. I'm just looking at this as being pre-season testing and development."
