Roadracingworld.com's Chris Ulrich was the fastest rider actually on a 750cc Supersport machine in Saturday morning 750cc Supersport practice at New Hampshire International Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire.
Many 600cc Supersport riders enter the 750cc Supersport class to get more practice time, because they consider the available Friday-Saturday-Sunday practice time for the 600cc class to be inadequate. (Many 750cc Supersport riders similarly use Superbike practice, and many Pro Thunder riders similarly use Formula Xtreme practice. Because their machines are not eligible for other classes, Formula Xtreme and 250cc Grand Prix riders are unable to enter another class to make up for the lack of official AMA practice time, which starts Friday morning.)
Ben Spies, second in series points, highsided in turn three early in the practice and was transported to the Infield Care Center, where the initial unconfirmed report was that he suffered a broken left collarbone; that report is tentative pending X-rays at Concord Hospital.
