"I wanted to win this race for mom," remarked LTD Racing's Huntley Nash after winning his third AMA Pro SuperSport race of the year. With his bike painted pink, Nash passed Joey Pascarella on the final lap of the scenic 2.38-mile track just outside of Birmingham, and held on for the win in the AMA Young Gun division for younger riders ages 16-21.

The Young Gun class of 2010 in AMA Pro SuperSport produced some incredibly exciting, memorable, and historic results in only its second year. With six different riders posting wins during the season, the class was exceptionally competitive, from the drop of the first green flag back in March at Daytona, to its finish on an even higher note at what Road and Track referred to as one of the most beautiful race tracks in all of North America.
Nash and Pascarella put on a thrilling show for the fans, dicing back-and-forth for most of the race.

Nash raced a pink bike to raise awareness for breast cancer, which has been a season long campaign for the Marietta, Georgia native. Nash donated a portion of his purse to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, and he encourages race fans to research the prevention of breast cancer. Huntley's mother passed away in 2006 when he was 14-years-old.

Spectators at Barber Motorsports Park got every pennies worth of their entertainment dollar as Nash and Pascarella waged a brilliantly engaging battle. The K&N sponsored rider emerged triumphant in the first of the two races that will determine this year's National Champion in the class for up-and-coming young talent.

Nash grabbed the holeshot but relinquished the lead momentarily until another rider crashed in the opening laps. Nash showed his aggressiveness and drive, holding onto the lead through the middle portions of the race.

Former LTD Racing rider Joey Pascarella made it a fight as he and Nash traded the lead at the end. Pascarella maneuvered around Nash on the 15th of 17 laps, but couldn't hold the lead. On the final lap, Nash was able to re-pass Pascarella in turn five going hard on the brakes, then managed to hold the west's points champ off, to win and earn LTD Racing's sixth SuperSport victory this season.

"That was a good race for me. I'm really happy. It was an awesome race between Joey and me and it means a lot because it's the last round of the year and it's battling for the National Championship," said the three-time 2010 race winner.

"The boys did a great job as we show up to win and get on the podium," said LTD Racing's Gary Medley. "Huntley rode exactly how he's supposed to ride and he was super out there."

"We just went in to moto one and won it to put ourselves in a good position for tomorrow, added Nash. "I'm hoping that I'll be able to put it up here again tomorrow and take home a Number One plate. We had a good battle out there and it was a lot of fun racing Joey, a good friend. I think this is the best of my three wins this year and it meant a lot for me to do it on the special pink bike. I dedicate this win to my mother."

Note: Sunday's race saw both early challengers for the title, Nash and Pascarella, along with many others, crash out as a result of the extremely wet conditions. A very disappointed LTD Racing's Tomas Puerta finished third on Saturday and Sunday.
