On-track activities at the Buckeye Superbike Weekend at
Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course are tentatively scheduled to resume at 1:00 p.m.
local time, according to AMA Pro Racing Road Racing Director David McGrath.
In a rider and entrant meeting held at 11:30 a.m. local
time, McGrath announced that since precipitation had stopped falling and the
track had started drying he had put together a tentative schedule to resume
The tentative schedule calls for a Superbike practice 1:00–1:40 p.m., a Daytona SportBike practice 1:50–2:30 p.m. and a SuperSport
practice 2:40–3:20 p.m.
Then a full-length Superbike race (21 laps) would be run
starting at 3:30 p.m. and immediately followed by full-length races for Daytona
SportBike (19 laps) and then Supersport (15 laps).
All races will be gridded by current point standings and
order of entry, said McGrath.
If those events happen on time, a 40-minute practice session
for the Harley-Davidson class would be run Saturday evening, after the races.
McGrath said that if there are any delays he will “start
trimming” things from the schedule, like pre-race activities and possibly race
laps, as necessary.
At post time the racetrack was drying slowly under a
completely overcast sky.
