Mladin on Pole for Loudon AMA Superbike

Tomorrow’s AMA Superbike race in Loudon, New Hampshire will find Mat Mladin again on pole after breaking the lap record in qualifying. Mladin’s Suzuki edged teammate Aaron Yates, who will line up second on the grid ahead of the Kawasakis of Eric Bostrom and Doug Chandler.

Yamaha’s Anthony Gobert has a wrist/hand injury and a sore shoulder (it was dislocated and put back in place) following a crash during qualifying. Gobert hopes to be back in time for the Laguna Seca Round, but will miss tomorrow’s race.
