"I didn't want a better start there. Too many guys going into too tight a turn. It was a real mess and I'm glad no one went down. So I just put my head down and went for it after turn 1. I was turning lap times in the low 1:20’s and just kept passing people. The lap times were coming surprisingly easy and I kept moving forward and just missed out on passing Robert Dougherty for 5th. Riding under the lights is very cool. I can't wait to do it again."
The Sunday morning Unlimited SuperSport race saw Greg get his best ever expert finish: 4th. "That's just awesome! Thanks to the new clutch put in by Corsa Motorworks, I got a decent start from the back row and was 5th in turn 1. After a quick pass to 4th I tried to gain on the top 3 but that wasn't happening. I had a gap back to 5th so I slowed down and brought it home safe."
Greg also finished 6th and 9th in Unlimited Superbike and Unlimited GP, respectively.
"The tire was just wearing out. This track has a lot of grip and it's tearing up the medium compound tires. We're running the same tire we ran last night and it's just tearing under acceleration and running out of grip, mid-corner. I still ran good lap times but I just couldn't push it any more. I know I can close the lap time gap to the leaders and will do just that at the next race at Jennings."
