The word of the day in St. Louis: Pastrana! With the first practice section not counting towards qualifying, it gave riders plenty of time to get acclimated to the unusual track design created by none other than Travis Pastrana. Strange bowl turns and on off sections created a steep learning curve for many of the riders, but as each session ended, most seemed to be getting up to speed. Best of all, Travis survived his practice and had the sixth fastest time in the unseeded session. James Stewart topped the charts for the overall fastest time, and Nico Izzi claimed the fastest time in the Lites practices.
