Just wow!


Seeing Jason come in the pits early made me think it was over. But man, they got some serious power out of that thing. First time I ever saw a triumph keep up with the yamahas like that.

Lappers got a litte worrisome at the end. People were obviously not paying attention to the blue flags. I thought they were gonna ass ran that last one.

Anyone notice that they were all jumping the curb onto the NASCAR oval? I slowed down some footage of Cardenez hitting the curb, and the bike got both wheels sideways. Scary ass shit.

When DiSalvo came in for the untimely tire change, I don't think they changed the front, so that means he did all 57 laps on the front tire that he started with. Wow, really shows he wanted to make Mr. Nixon proud.

Nuno!

Great race! I feel that if he had stayed in the draft a little longer he might have taken first. Good to see him contend again...on another Triumph!

When disalvo came in early i could have sworn i saw him point at the regulator/rectifier...

that was an AWESOME race to watch, especially as a triumph fan. coming from that far behind on old tires!?
i am going to see when i can get my ass out to the disalvo speed academy!!

and was it me, or did his corner entries look far superior to those inline 4's?

also, triumph = best looking bike on the grid?? i think i know my next paint scheme...

Congradulation to Jason Disalvo and to his Latus Motorsports team, their off season work paid off. Makes alot of the folks who trash talked him for leaving WSS eat some humble pie, good thing for him, he believed in his talent instead of listening to the naysayers.

Great race:

I've been watching practice times all week and knew he was going to be in the hunt if the bike held up. When he pitted early, I thought it was over for sure.

What a race, and so nice to be affiliated with this brand. Notice how many Hondas were on the grid? Were there any at all? Funny how things change. Also, having Jake Zemke out there was great. We live in the same town and this is his first season ever to ride a Duc. He was looking good too on the early laps. Its going to be a great season, and if this continues, Triumph could possibly win a national championship.

Cheers

So many bikes, so little time.....

Yea, high level of respect for the team, and the rider.

I really think they got that bike dialed in right. Not just power, but the power out of the turns was impressive. The I-4s where ready unstable in some of the turns where the 675 was making up time.


But the power on the banking was just amazing. I watch the be1 bikes struggle at Miller, loosing tons of time on the front straight vs the others. I know the engine rules are different, but the yamahas and hondas were bushing at least 10 more HP. At Daytona, it was at least even.

That was a very good comeback indeed, but on to important stuff now.

What exhaust was he running. Looks like an FMF Apex, but there's nothing about any Triumph support on their website. Custom built?
