They collided and both slid into the Air Fence outside the corner. An angry DiSalvo threw his glove across the track, punched the Air Fence, then took off his helmet and tossed it on the ground.<BR><BR>Perry Melneciuc was second on a Yamaha and Al Salaverria came from row 13 on an Aprilia to finish third.<BR><BR>Sorensen lapped up to 10th place; 53 bikes started the race.<BR><BR>1.
