Toronto SX 2012: Practice (Updated)

Practice inside the Rogers Centre has come to a close here in Toronto, Canada, and we have the results from the qualifying sessions.

In the 450 class, Muscle Milk Honda’s Justin Brayton came out victorious during timed qualifying as he jumped on top of the leader boards with 47.496. Not too far behind was Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto. Geico Honda’s Kevin Windham took the top spot during the first qualifying session, but he was edged out by the two riders and was the third fastest of the night. Jake Weimer and Davi Millsaps would round out the top five. Brayton, Villopoto, and Windham were the only riders to break the 47-second mark in the 450 class, but there might be more riders dipping inside the range once the races start in a couple hours.

In the 250 class, Geico Honda’s rookie Justin Bogle came out swinging in the second timed qualifier and claimed the fastest time as he navigated around the technical track. His teammate Justin Barcia was about two-hundredths of a second off of his pace, and took the second spot. In third was last week’s winner, Rockstar Suzuki’s Blake Wharton. Taking the fourth and fifth spot going into the night show were Malcolm Stewart and Darryn Durham. Additionally, Bogle’s 47.804 lap time was faster than Windham’s, who qualified third in the 450 class.

Track prep is currently underway inside the stadium, and the gates will be dropping for the first heat of the night in about an hour and a half.

After this post was sent out, officials reported that Justin Brayton, Ryan Villopoto, and Nico Izzi had their fastest times deleted during the second qualifier for jumping the triple while the red cross flag was waving. This moves Brayton down to sixth, and Villopoto to fourth. Kevin Windham now hold the fastest time going into the night show, with Jake Weimer and Davi Millsaps taking the top three spots.
