AMA SuperSport Pole Day Results.
Josh Day (No. 4 Kerker Racing Yamaha YZF-R6) won the pole for Sunday’s AMA Pro SuperSport race presented by Shoei only to crash near the end of the session after setting the session’s fastest time of 1:32.072 (99.705 mph) on Lap 8.
"I was out there trying to get in another fast lap and I was going into (Turn) 5 and made a downshift there," said Day, who was also on the pole at the season-opener in Daytona last month. "Usually, the rear end gets a little upset there, but it got a little more upset than it has in the past and the rear just came around on me. It just lost the traction and I ended up falling down. I’m fine, but the bike didn’t look too good. The guys are going to have a lot of work on their hands to get it back and ready for tomorrow, but I have plenty of confidence in them. I think we’ll be good to go for tomorrow."
Day topped all practice and qualifying sessions at the Daytona opener only to crash out early in the race while leading. That paved the way for Joey Pascarella (No. 25 LTD Racing Yamaha YZF-R6) and Russ Wikle (No. 5 Roadracingworld.com Suzuki GSX-R600) to wage a great battle for the lead before finishing second and third respectively behind race winner Tyler Odom (No. 46 Erion Racing Honda CBR600RR).
Odom is focusing on AMA Pro Daytona SportBike presented by AMSOIL this weekend but Pascarella and Wikle continued to show the same quick pace they did at Daytona on the Road Atlanta road course.
Wikle qualified second with a lap time of 1:32.426 (99.323 mph) and Pascarella will grid fourth in the final front-row spot after turning a lap at 1:32.959 (98.754 mph).
In between Wikle and Pascarella is Kris Turner (No. 3 Team M4 Suzuki GSX-R600) who clocked in third fastest at 1:32.856 (98.863 mph).
The 16-lap AMA Pro SuperSport presented by Shoei is scheduled for 3 p.m. local time Sunday.
