Updated Post: Loudon AMA National Schedule Revised In Attempt To Beat Rain

The schedule for the AMA National at New Hampshire International Speedway at Loudon, New Hampshire has been revised in a bid to beat threatening rainstorms. The new schedule is as follows:<BR><BR>600cc Supersport, 11:00 a.m., 24 laps<BR>Superbike, 12:00 p.m., 39 laps<BR>250cc Grand Prix, TBA, 24 laps<BR>Buell Pro Thunder, TBA, 24 laps<BR>Jimmy Adamo Memorial, TBA, 10 laps<BR>Sidecar, TBA, 8 laps<BR><BR>Teams and riders who are running in both the 600cc Supersport and Superbike races objected to the schedule change because it will require riders to run 63 consecutive laps on the difficult track.<BR><BR>Al Ludington, who tunes for Eric Bostrom, said "That just screws Eric. It's just another example of the AMA knuckling under to the track instead of saying, 'We can't do that.'"<BR><BR>Vic Fasola, who works with Aaron Yates, said "It sucks. It's stupid. I mean, 63 laps around this place? Physically, how do you plan on doing that? Several of the top riders will be at a very big disadvantage."
