Sign of the (Lap) Times: Anaheim 2

|

For this week’s Motion Pro Sign of the (Lap) Times, we introduce an updated, expanded, and improved lap chart. Our Sign of the (Lap) Times customer service reps put together an aggressive campaign to find what you need, and it resulted in this letter:
 
I always enjoy reviewing these results…the only thing I would add is what lap their fastest lap was logged.
 
Thanks!
Brian Colegrove

 
So this week, we are adding that stat. Now on to the data!

  • Hahn posted a faster lap last week, but a better finish this week.

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer was exceptionally strong at Anaheim 2, even more dominant there than he was with wins at Anaheim 1 and Phoenix. That’s reflected in the lap times, to a degree, as he did log the fastest lap. But note that Trey Canard was not far off, just over a tenth. The difference was that Weimer sprinted early and logged fast laps right from the start, while it took Canard a few laps to figure out the tricky second whoop section and drop his times. By then Weimer had a good lead and most likely could have turned it up more if he had to.

But the most startiling stat comes courtesy of runner-up finisher Wil Hahn. Last week in Phoenic, Hahn logged the second-fastest time but only finished fourth in the main. This time Hahn’s time was only sixth-best, but he finished second! Credit a better start and consistent riding.

And Star Racing/DNA Shred Stix’s Broc Tickle continues to be mired in the back each week. This time he crashed on lap one and fought back to tenth, with help from the fifth-fastest lap time.

  • Josh Hill logged the fastest time of the night in Anaheim.

San Manuel Yamaha’s Josh Hill admitted the pace was so high early in the Anaheim main that he was riding above his comfort zone. But he hung with that pace well, in fact, he logged the fastest lap of anyone! Ryan Dungey eventually won the race by maintaining that fast pace longer, as you’ll notice his best lap came on lap 14. But Hill knows he has the speed.

If you watched the A2 race, you noted how close the racing was. Check the lap times for proof.  Dungey, Stewart and Short were all on the same tenth of a second on their best laps. That’s close!
