vduc said:2.5 miles is the tri-oval for NASCAR, the AMA runs the infields, and cuts off NASCAR 1 and 2 for 2.95 miles which 68 laps makes 200.6 miles.
As far as the pace car, it should waved the other riders by to let Zemke be right behind...
I wasn't a big Neil fan in WSBK, but since listening to interviews, and reading articles it's hard not to like the guy.
Saw him (Neil) at a Sport Bike Night event last year. Eric Bostrom was there also. Very good chemistry between the two riders and Neil in particular was a crowd favorite. He is quite the joker and very personable. Funny how meeting one on one changes your perception about people for the positive or negative. This is Neil's year of reckoning with Ducati, last year being the "learning year". He knows this and he is going to push that bike real hard. Same goes for Ben Bostrom, he needs a pick me up like Bayliss is doing now.
