It's the end of another great weekend of racing at Barber. The inaugural MotoAmerica event went off without a hitch, even getting cooperation from the weather. Time to wrap up all the loose ends rattling around in your intrepid reporter's head!
- Bernat Martinez, where are you? After being ranked as high as 4th in the Superbike points chase, he was a no show this weekend.
- I really, really, wanted to get an opportunity to get some time with Mr. Wayne Rainey, who is not only leading the charge for this great new series, but also happens to be one of my personal heroes as well. Seeing him in his prime, battling it out with some of the greatest names in road racing on the world stage, and beating them - suffice it to say he was amazing. I actually spotted him twice this weekend, both times one step too late to catch him. A swing, and a miss.
Round 5 of the 2015 Series is this Sunday, June 21 at Tumbling Creek MX in McKewen, TN. The trail is being prepped with a couple of route changes to help it flow better and to change it up a little. The race be running the race a little different this round. Here are a couple of changes:
To help move the motos along and give the smaller motos a more competitive feel, they will be combining Pro A and B classes together in one moto. They will still individually score all classes and have Pro A and B overall standings. The C-Classes will run as normal.

Dunlop is the spec tire provider for the MotoAmerica series, and watching the crew working to remove, mount, and balance tires at incredible speed is pretty amazing to watch. They know that these tires will immediately put to a 150 MPH test.
Dunlop sends inspectors down from Buffalo, New York, where the tires are manufactured, to gather data to improve the tires. The work at the track, however, is being carried out by a company based right in Nashville Riders backyard, off I-24 in Antioch, TN!
