Not the wild-eyed Brainerd layout we know from years past but still should be a fun weekend in the North Woods. Baz got a lot closer to Gagne at Laguna. Hoping for more battles up front and I really want Fong to have a good weekend on the 'zuke.

No Baggers or Hooligans this weekend but we do have the debut of the road racer version of Royal Enfield's Build, Train, Race program.

Man Fong needs some good Juju to come his way.

Love to see Baz give Gagne a run for his money.

Everyone's favorite racer JD Beach is riding an Attack Yamaha Superbike this weekend.

From MotoAmerica's Instagram:
Quote:

He’s baaaacck! @jdbeach95 is racing as a replacement rider for @josh_herrin this weekend @brainerdinternationalraceway on the @attackyamaha. Herrin is home with a fever and has tested negative for COVID-19. If the fever breaks he may make it here in time to race and Attack would run three bikes if that’s the case.

RoadracingWorld.com reports that Herrin received news of a positive test for COVID-19 upon arriving in Minnesota. He will not race this weekend.

Unfortunately I will miss this weekends race at Brainerd. I received the results from my second COVID test today and they were positive. I started feeling symptoms on Sunday so I got a rapid test on Monday, results came back negative. I continued to have a 102° fever, cold sweats, body aches, the worst throat pain I’ve ever had and a loss of taste and smell. I went to a doctor on Wednesday that checked me out and said I was totally fine, she gave me a pill to basically help break down the flem in my throat. I asked her numerous times if I was okay to travel and she told me over and over that it was fine. Yamaha asked me to get a PCR test, so I went back to the doctor for that and got the results back this afternoon that confirmed I do have COVID. No words can explain how disappointed I am not to be racing this weekend but I know JD will make the team look great! Thank you to everyone that has already reached out. I hope to see you guys in Pittsburgh. Much ❤️

Hoping Herrin has a speedy recovery.

Stole this photo off the WERA BBS. The new R7 looks fantastic in race livery.

Multiple Superbike yard sales today from the warm up lap through the last lap of the race. Don't know if anyone was hurt.

Hopefully tomorrow is better. Track layout isn't bad except for that one chicane.

Baz got screwed, though...

Pretty cool for JD to run #69 on what would have been Nicky's 40th birthday!

I thought if you cause the red you go to the back.
I was looking forward to his charge thru the field.

I'm not on board with that red flag ruling.

Glad to see Fong on the podium and JD doing great as a sub.
