With Hurricane Bill knocking on the door down here in Maryland, the AMA wisely chose to shorten practice to just one session per group. Showers on Friday evening made for a muddy mess of a track in the first few practices. But soon enough, the sun was shining, and by the final session, the track had shaped up quite a bit. In the 450 Class, Chad Reed topped the lap times with a 2:31.34 followed by the most recent Monster Energy guest rider, Jake Moss with a 2:33.84. In the 250 Class, Chrstophe Pourcel had the best lap with a 2:30.64, which was over two seconds faster than Ryan Dungey in second. Although considering the shifting track conditions, the practices could mean little come race time.
