"I didn't get a very good start but just tried to be consistent," he said. "The Yamaha's Team riders held me up and I had a hard time getting past them. I was getting more confident on the bike as the race went on and started closing in on Blake Young by the end."
On day two of the race, the weather did not cooperate. Heavy rain affected warm-up practice. Holden spent the session becoming familiar with the Honda Superbike's power during the rain. Holden said he wanted a dry race.
Holden got his wish. The green flag dropped under sunny skies. Unfortunately, during race two a red flag came out on the first lap. On the restart Holden settled into sixth for a few laps before charging up to fourth place. Holden was about to make the pass when an electrical problem on his Honda slowed him down and forced him to retire.
"I thought it was a fuel problem so I dropped to the trackside," he said. "I got back on the bike and tried again, but it was worse and I pulled in."
In its "Race to the Lime" Corona Extra Honda is proud to be partnering with K&N. The team uses K&N air filters and oil filters HA-1008 and KN-204. "K&N is a quality product," said Team Owner Tim Saunders. "This is a highly competitive sport and K&N improves the performance on our bikes."
The Corona Extra Honda Racing Team will race again at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia on April 3-5.
