<BR>Grant Lopez was the fastest man in practice for a CCS regional race at Homestead Miami Speedway Saturday on a 2001 GSX-R1000 Suzuki.<BR><BR>Lopez's best lap was a 1:28.01, or about one second off the lap record he set in December of 1999.<BR><BR>Lopez turned his time with stock forks, and after practice concluded, his crew installed a set of Ohlins racing forks.<BR><BR>"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."<BR><BR><BR>
