Team Texas 2010 - is aiming towards Kentucky's finest and looking for a fight with Nicky. With luck we'll see Ben give Casey the odd scare or too or in 2011 at least.

GO Ben!!!!
(I'm British and love Ben Spies's attitude and skills).

I love Johnny Rea but he will only remain fastest until he runs his bike through the gravel at some point, as usual. Heres hoping for another epic battle this weekend. Go Ben GO!

Spies will have to really work for this. This article is just trying to be dramatic. Spies hasn't been all that fast so far, with the exception of the last lap before time expired. At this point, Haga has the quicker "consistent" pace. So despite what the times ended up as, I'd say in reality Haga is probably the one who has drawn first blood.

You must have not been watching the same thing I was. Spies was out there longer and was more consitent. Haga was doing 2-4lap stints and heading into the pits which means to me that he is working on setup and trying to get things right.
