Pit Bits - Monster Energy
Of course everyone was excited to see Chad Reed back on a Yamaha. Here he and Justin Barcia stop in to chat with the Dirt Wurx crew after press day's track time.
Yamaha and Chad are still trying to sort out the details of his deal. It's not done yet.
They were trying something unique on Friday, to try and preserve the Discount Tire logos in their full forum, but having a molded overlay on top of the wavy Yamaha front fender. Later they opted (and got approved) the cut out version that was on a stock fender.
There was a bit of a fuss that the FMF muffler was logo-free. Like mentioned above, they're still sorting out details of the deal.
Chad went down in the second main and had to work his way from the back of the pack. He ended the night with 9-6-8 scores for the three mains, which netted tenth overall.
