On Saturday, the North Carolina native ran the 7.023 pass she knew her Buell was capable of and finished the day solidly in eighth on the provisional charts.
“We had a really good 60 foot time,” she said after Saturday’s final round of qualifying. “We knew we had to run a good time today because of the rain we’re expecting tomorrow, but it was a good lap and we’re happy with it.”
