Sam Lochoff comes into Pittsburgh eager to build off his 2nd and 3rd place results from Road Atlanta the previous week. Having never ridden the Kawasaki 400 around the PittRace Complex, Sam was quick to familiarize himself with the circuit and was soon one of the fastest around the 2.8 miles 19 turn track. Working with his crew on identifying the areas where they need to improve to close the gap to the top two riders, Sam and his team seemed to have found the missing pieces. By race one, Sam was within striking distance of the leaders and felt as though he had the bike to win. Would he be able to manage the pace over race distances? Would he be able to avoid the carnage and potential disasters in a close field?
