As cliche as it sounds, electricity was in the air as anticipation continues to mount for Saturday night. Andrew Short kicked off the press conference interview.

Short…

To think that an engine alone takes over a day to rebuild, not to mention entirely stripping the bike down to the frame between race weekends, is mind numbing in terms of time and…
