“My bike wouldn’t shift into third first round,” Reed said. “I really can’t complain, though. I just had some bad luck first round but we’ll try again in Atlanta next weekend.”

“I’m so proud that I caught a good light and shifted on time and went perfectly straight,” Sampey said. “The hardest thing for me is to lose from my mistakes. We just need more time to tune and learn. I’m very proud of my team. I couldn’t be more satisfied with this weekend.”
