Cal Crutchlow, Valentino Rossi and Dani Pedrosa all walked away from fast accidents during the intense 15 minute Q2 shootout.

Qualifying 2 contained the ten fastest riders after third practice, plus the top two riders from the Q1 session.

Karel Abraham, who had attempted to return from a broken right collarbone at Austin, has withdrawn from the remainder of the event. Pramac Ducati's Ben Spies is also missing in order to undergo further rehabilitation on his healing shoulder.

Ducati test rider and former Gresini CRT racer Michele Pirro is making his Desmosedici race debut as a wild-card this weekend.
