The first day of competition was difficult for the Factory Aprilia Team. Davies crashed when a rider in front of him dragged dirt on the track with his knee. Davies picked up his RSV1000R and continued the race. He finished in 28th place and managed to turn the fastest lap of the race. Thompson finished 19th.

The next day riders and fans faced tornados and thunderstorms. The AMA managed to get in three races during a break in the weather. Race Day Two began with a wet but drying track. Davies and Thompson had great starts and Davies was in immediate contention for the lead. Thompson raced through the field well into the top ten.

The Aprilia RSV1000R's are equipped with K&N air and oil filters. “We use K&N on everything we build,” said Team Manager Chip Spalding. “K&N protects our engines from track debris.”

“The team took advantage of the short three week break between rounds and made huge improvements to the Aprilia RSV1000R,” said Davies. “We had a podium finishing bike both days but we just did not have the right circumstances.”
