MotoAmerica Road Atlanta Qualifying Report

April 20, 2024Ramon Jones

Bobby Fong laid down a blistering fastest lap in Qualifying 2 today that skyrocketed him to pole position for the races set for later today and tomorrow (Weather permitting). Heavy rain and potential thunderstorms are on the forecast for Sunday’s race so there is a possibility that it could be postponed or cancelled depending on the severity. Sean Dylan Kelly and Josh Herrin rounded out the top 3 in Superbike. The class leaders all found at least a second on the second day of qualifying as the lap times began to drop. The improvement in pace is likely due to a dry track surface and adjustments made after yesterday’s qualifying 1 session.

In a surprising situation jake Gagne finds himself down in P4 with Cameron Beaubier close behind in P5. The two had a heated battle with Herrin in 2023 which Herrin lost out on. This year Herrin is looking for redemption to get his superbike season kicked off on the right foot.


Tyler Scott continued his charge at the front aboard his Vision Wheel M4 ECSTAR Suzuki. The Supersport class had a packed field with 33 riders making the cut from 44 entries. Scott finds himself ahead with a 5 tenths of a second lead over Blake Davis who also looked faster on track today behind. Pj Jacobsen finish P3 despite an early move for the top spot in qualifying.

Junior Cup

Ryan Wolfe cut almost 2 seconds off of his qualifying time from yesterday. Junior cup riders had to contend with a wet track in the morning during qualifying session 1 so naturally their pace should have improved on day 2 where conditions were completely dry and much more favorable. Yandel Medina finished second ahead of last years champion Avery Dreher.

Twins Cup

Rocco Landers and former Junior cup rider Rossi Moor finished at the top of the Twins cup table ahead of Dominic Doyle. After a disappointing race 1 in 2023 with his former Twins cup team Landers is looking to improve as the DNF last year cost him valuable points that ended up coming into play at the end of the season for the championship deciding race. The top 1o in Twins is full of riders who all have the potential to win. Racing get started shortly to determine how the dust settles in the standings.

King of the Baggers

Despite a late charge by Bobby Fong Troy Herfoss was able to beat Fong narrowly to secure pole position for the Indian Motorcycle side. Herfoss doubled down and won the Bagger challenge this afternoon. He has the opportunity to bring home the perfect weekend for Indian with a win in tomorrows race.
