  • Ryan Dungey has found his early-season speed again.
Ryan Villopoto was the fastest in the mains in the last four races, but Ryan Dungey was back on it in Atlanta, carding the fastest lap time in the Dome and winning the main. Note how the track shaped up in Atlanta, as RV and Dungey carded their best laps on the sixth circuit, and the rest of the top riders put in their best laps at around the same mark. In fact, half the field put in their best time on either lap five or six.

Atlanta's track was hard and slick, a far cry from the old days of soft, rutted, Georgia clay. But clearly the track broke down somewhat, considering how many riders put in their fast laps early.

  • Justin Barcia was fastest in the Lites class.
Justin Barcia may have finished off the podium this time, but the results don't even come close to telling the full story this week. He had a lot more speed than he did in Indy, starting with the second practice session, where he was fastest of all, and into the main, where he logged the fastest lap time. That's a lot of improvement in just one week!

But Christophe Pourcel's lap time led him to another win. Impressive also was Brett Metcalfe, who improved quite a bit over last week, as well, despite a big practice crash. And the new Mr. Consistency, Austin Stroupe, turned in just the fourth best time, but led several laps and finished second in the main.

On to Daytona, a totally different type of track. But will the results differ?
