Friday sweep for Marquez

Fellow rookie Andrea Iannone (Pramac) was again the slowest of the manufacturer riders, but at least improved by three places relative to FP1.

Texan Colin Edwards finished his first day at 'home' in a disappointing 23rd for Forward Racing, with local wild-cards Blake Young (Attack Performance) and Mike Barnes (GP Tech Suzuki) again propping up the timesheets.

Austin is the first event where the CRT riders have a softer specification rear tyre relative to the manufacturer riders. CRT rear tyre choice is soft and medium, while manufacturer riders have medium and hard compounds.

Third practice takes place on Saturday morning, after which the top ten riders will be granted direct access to the second and final part of the new qualifying format.
