Lap times from the Indy test Hayden 1:47.6, Disalvo 1:48.2, Noyes 1:51's . Noyes is 32 years old.Hayden is 27 years old, and Disalvo is 26 years old . Noyes raced in the AMA in 2007 and 2008, and was no competetiom for Hayden are Disalvo . You people are funny ,just because Roger Hayden is on the worst bike in the WSBK grid , and is getting bad results,you think he can not ride . He is beating his teammate , who had top 10 finishes last year on a privateer Ducati,and unlike his teammate Roger does not know the tracks . Disalvo was asked to race on sick motors, because the Triumph team did not have the budget for new ones , so he quit the team, because his results were bad because of this .

Noyes is on a rented Supersport so the results for that bike are fine considering his objective was to learn the track. DiSalvo needs to prove he's not a quitter. Hard to overcome since he's only raced WERA Endurance races since leaving the Triumph team. Hayden, however, has everything to look forward to. He has taken a sub standard WSBK effort and out performed his teammate. He's taken a one off GP ride and proved he's not going to throw away a bike and got decent results for having a total of 3 hrs on it before the race. Now, he gets to race a 600 in a situation he should excel at. Racing these guys that have a half a season head start should prove interesting. 12th qualified. 7th finish.

I hope we can see Hayden in the Moto2 championship full-time next year with this team but it depends on how this wild-card goes, if not i think we'll see him in WSS next year hoipefully on a Kawasaki.

@kirk66 - I believe Ben and Eric Bostrom have also raced for the same WERA Endurance team. You know, the team that wins every race. So...what's your point.

The difference between the Boz Bros and Herrin- they do it for fun. Seriously. Ben and Eric are playing. Herrin needs a gig. The point is if you see full time AMA guys on deck in WERA it's for development of the bike or to keep the skills sharp because the schedule is a little weird this season. Herrin has to overcome being a "quitter" for many. That said, WERA isn't the place. Jake Holden puts his own bike on the grid. I know Jake. He has no money but is still able to get on the track. Herrin's dad needs to pony up a R6 for Daytona SB so the kid can re-establish or he's toast.
